Last year I had the great pleasure taking part in the production of Adam Kalderon’s feature film Marzipan Flowers (official selection Jerusalem International Film Festival). The main focus of my work was the design and production of the film backgrounds. The film was entirely shot in a studio and all scenes were played in front of black and white Xerox-alike-prints. Sometimes we used manipulated still images photographed by the great DoP Itay Gross while other backgrounds are entirely computer generated. The sets were then dressed with „real“ and colourful props, furniture and so on by the art team (directed by the super talented Hagar Brotman) combined with Kalderon’s amazing costume designs (nomination for the Ofir Prize aka the Israeli Oscar) all these elements create a very strong and unique visual impact.
