Moonrise Kingdom: Designing the Adults
Here’s the original designs for the adults, based on Wes’ email descriptions. I did these in about a day. I tried to make each one a likeness of the actor, but in shorthand that I’d be able to draw quickly in boards. From day one on this production they needed everything “yesterday”. But I tried to put some thought into the designs. Edward Norton had a little bit of the “Man in the yellow hat”, and with Bill Murray I drew him a little like Mr. Wilson in “Dennis the Menace”, since it took place in the 1960’s.
Mr. Bishop is a tall, fifty-year-old man in Madras trousers and horn-rimmed glasses.
This is Bill Murray.
Mrs. Bishop is a tan, forty-five-year-old woman in a Lilly Pulitzer-type wrap-around skirt.
This is Frances McDormand.
SCOUT MASTER WARD
Scout Master Ward is a thirty-five-year-old man in a scout uniform with a wide-brimmed felt hat. A badge on the crown reads Khaki Scout Troop 55. He smokes.
He is Edward Norton/
Captain Sharp is six-foot tall, forty-five-year-old man in a short-sleeved police uniform with a black necktie and a baseball cap. His glasses have clear plastic frames and a strap.
