Flat Pack Theatre Set

For our latest project we have been given a list of pantomimes, which we have been asked to create a flat pack theatre based around. The final outcome will include a flat pack of illustrations including sets and characters that we are to package in an innovative and accessible way.

I'm already struggling for ideas, been sketching away, but nothing is happening as of yet. It is a 9 week project so i have quite a while to get my act together. Here is some of the initial research i have done to get the ball rolling.

Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge
After watching this a couple of weeks ago, unimpressed with the acting i found the set very elaborate and thought i could link this somehow within the project.

Ed Kluz
His use of bright colours and collage, to create buildings and location imagery, could work really well within a theatrical project, as again this could be elaborate and eye catching

I then came across an animation called Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty, which is a unique twist on the classic tale and incorporates some visually eye catching 2D animation as well as 3D
