“La Belle et la Bête”, 2013

For this French-German cine production, I was hired as head of department sculptor for Studio Babelsberg. Together with Brita Hofmann as HoD plasterer and an army of talented collegues we worked hard on these opulent historic sets. But successfully – “The Beauty and the Beast” and the ambitious production designer Thierry Flamand received a César in 2015 for this work. One big challenge was the puzzle out a way to build a giant amnetyst as the ‘bath tub’ of the Beast. Finally I decided to mould single chrystal groups in coloured clear resin. The chrystal pieces were then mounted in a metal structure and illuminated from the back.
