Sunset Waltz (La La Land) - Original

  • What I have done is to create a clear synergy to the film and its’ aesthetics but not to go too close so it ends up looking like an alternative movie poster and also to risk encroaching on any brand protection that is much tighter in the U.S.

    So what I have done is create a piece that actually has a different narrative albeit within the same setting, set looking across Los Angeles from the San Fernando hills. My concept is one that I hope would appeal to a greater audience than just those who love the film, where the fact it is linked to the movie is actually only a plus. What I have shown is a beautiful scene of a couple reunited in the stars to dance the waltz, this could be a vision of loved ones from years past who have passed away but from being stood at a viewpoint that has memories attached projects a beautiful vision, so for example remembering parents or grandparents. Possibly also for people who were never able to be together in life for various reasons who come together through death.

    The movie theme is linked through showing a projector sat on the hillside amongst the leaves that is where the image is coming from, that is a clear link but also it could open up the concept that it shows past actors and actresses who have passed away but come back to be reunited above the city. The dancers are actually based on Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. Sunset Waltz as a title conjures up those emotions, the sense of time and memories fading but all not being lost. I have drawn the LA light map from the city grid using tiny dots, by doing this not only does it give the piece more artistic merit but it creates a feeling that those within the city who also share memories of days gone by are also involved, the subtle detail and cloud like glows reaching upwards give that sense that all of their memories come together to project what you see above.

    There are a lot of magical details true to my body of work and style that help to project and carry the images up into the stars.
