Inside the Production Design of Hugo
On Dec. 30th, 2011, the NY Times published a short piece about the remarkable work done by production designer Dante Ferretti on Martin Scorsese's tribute to the early days of motion pictures, Hugo.
The NY Times article is a nice companion to Alex Suskind's Dec. 2. 2011 piece for moviefone about Hugo and Georges Méliès, the pioneering French filmmaker who inspired Scorsese's film.
Faithful readers of this blog know I have written about Georges Méliès and his role in the early history of motion pictures. I've even written about the real-life movie-lover who discovered Georges Méliès at work in a small toy store in the Gare Montparnasse, Leon Druhot.
