Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2

Production Designer’s Notebook #004

Because the Director’s wanted to achieve a more graphic look for the second film, I realized we would get the best results by designing our establishing shots in 2D and then building the establishing shots to camera as often as we could.

These are some of the establishing shots I designed for the approach to Swallow Falls. The directors asked me to make it feel spooky and emphasize the scale of the giant plants growing on the island.

I went a step further and tried to compose the shots so that it might feel as if the characters were walking into the jaws of a giant creature, literally being swallowed by the island as they journeyed closer.

Huge thanks and well-deserved credit to Dean Gordon for the final color on the last image of the bioluminescent jungle.
