Jesolo International Masters Sand Sculpture Exhibition VIII
HOLLYWOOD
Reference sketches

~Another fine 'Sultans Of Sand Worldwide' project ~
  Each of the ten artists will have a  pre pounded pyramid 3.5 meter tall. Placed diagonally to the front view, on the flat grade level of the beach. (no base piles)

 The sculptures are laid out in numerical sequence, and can be seen in the color rendering of the floor plan.

  These sketch ideas below are just examples of either films or characters from each category of the Hollywood theme that I have selected for each artist.
There should be at least three, but not more than five examples of different appropriate elements for each sculpture, but you can have as many figures as you want. For example Box Office Smash Hits may have four movies represented overall: Star Wars, Titanic, Lord of the Rings and ET the Extraterrestrial. But, it  may have 25 imperial storm troopers six inches high just in the Star Wars part.

    Which brings me to the scale issue.
 The idea is that we are representing a big montage of many different elements in multiple sculptures, so the scale SHOULD be mixed up. Even mixed scale in a single sculpture or theme is OK (like on movie posters often).
Example: A two  meter long sculpture of Titanic could be right next to a sculpture of Yoda's head that is one meter tall. That scale is way different, but that is fine!
 In a couple of sculptures, like the Golden Era of contract actors (1940s-1960s) it is ok if it is composed all of figures & all in life size scale. One or two sculptures that are consistent with their own scale is ok too.

  PLEASE SEND ME  SKETCHES OF HOW YOU PLAN TO CARVE YOUR SUBJECT NOW so that I can have a good idea of the direction you are going in. The producer may also want to use your sketches in the program and he needs to get that material to the printer right away.

Please feel free to browse some of the research material I have linked on the web.
 Print out what you need to bring with you to Italy.
