SLEEPING BEAUTY (1959) Part Three
How did you spend your holiday? I got "on a roll" with SLEEPING BEAUTY and archived over sixty backgrounds. Re-creating these pan B/Gs are have given me a new appreciation for the artful cinematography., with zooms, fades, etc. Of course these make re-creating the B/Gs more challenging. But it's worth every minute (hour? day? days?). What magnificent artwork! Here are three... take your time and savor the details. Magnificent!
On the second pan B/G, if you look closely you'll see Briar Rose on the far right, and a lone bird flying away. This B/G was a challenge, as the perspective changed as the multiplane camera panned left to right. It's not always possible to completely clear the "landscape." This was one of those cases, but I think it still gives a lovely presentation of the artwork.
