Everything started with a song and … a dream.
CITY OF STARS
They were that fantastic Trailer and the song performed by Ryan Gosling. I was lost within
my mind trying to put back all my memories together after watching the trailer. That song and the visuals drive me into a huge city where I could see my self surrounded by a thousand shining stars. I felt like I could see through that innocent and pure intentions they had toward each other.
I decided to capture that moment and bring all that feeling into a visual form, something pure and innocent. I created that frame, a small little girl dancing with a thousand stars. As a visual creator, I believe I could push that image much further. I love this movie so much ! What if all these stars and love could tell its stories in some way that support the movie ? It could become a book cover of LaLa Land, a land of music, romance and love.
I just want everything to appear in a silhouette form and the background should be dark and dreamy. The outlines of each object need to glow in order for them to stand out from the background. All star particles and depth of field need to play along very well with each other. They need to maintain all the details but should not take too much attention from the viewers. In term of colors, I believe blue, yellow and green will be a very good combination. It shouldn't be too cold or hot, just enough bright to shine. If we look closer at the second frame, we could see a bit of double exposure effect as well. Its like a sky exist within another.
