“Remember [Krishna’s] early videos I posted, about the special effects produced when he was a kid? Now he has developed into an impressive talent. This film beautifully evokes Hopper.”
– Roger Ebert on “In The Morning”
A project I did for college. I’ve attempted to recreate the world of Edward Hopper’s paintings in motion. I’ve tried to stay faithful to the themes, style, look, mood et al of his great work.
Apart from, obviously, Hopper’s paintings, I was inspired by Conrad Hall’s wonderful cinematography in “Road to Perdition”, the unhurried feel of the great “Drive” (the new Refn film. Odd, I know), and the idea behind the film “The Mill and the Cross”, unseen by me. The last inspiration, perhaps one of the most significant of the lot, was more subconscious. Only now when I look at “In the Morning” am I reminded of the trailer of “The Mill and the Cross”, a film I look forward to experiencing. Oh, and I suppose I must add “Sin City” to the list. And “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow”, for that matter. Yes, it’s all coming back now.
