I can’t wait to see this short film. I’m trying really hard to find a place where I can see it complete.

The bigger picture by Daisy Jacobs is a short film that combines, big painting characters, stop motion and paper mache.

Daisy Jacobs explains in the video that I posted here how it was made.

She painted this big characters and their arms are 3D coming out of the wall and giving the idea of real scene.

As well all the elements are made in paper mache, which in my opinion is a great touch, they look real but they are not.

This stop motion animation took her 7 months to finish but it was worthy as it won many many awards, including 2 Baftas and a nomination for the Oscars 2015.

I’m sure we will hear more about this talented film maker soon.

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, is exhibiting a range of Hollywood Costumes from the most famous films of all time. It is definitely worth going, but I strongly recommend you get tickets in advance because they are almost sold out every day.

Beautiful gowns are exhibited, like the one Scarlet O’Hara used in “Gone with the Wind” or the beautiful dresses from “Elizabeth” or “Marie Antoinette”. There are classic costumes used by people like Russell Crowe in “Gladiator” or “Ben Hur”, what Harrison Ford wore in “Indiana Jones” or the amazing costume of Darth Vader. Other classics include the black dress of Audrey in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” or “My Fair Lady”, two more from “Titanic”, “Moulin Rouge”, Batman and Catwoman, to the whole Addams Family. My favourites were Dorothy from “The Wizard of Oz” and Marilyn’s stunning white dress, oh god she had a figure.

Don’t miss it, it will be on until January 27th.
