I’ve had this in my bookmarks for a long time and had forgotten all about it. It’s the inspiration and scrapbook of film maker Jane Campion whilst she was working on the film Bright Star. There was a website too where she had all the work laid out like a big inspiration wall, but it has since been taken down.

I love seeing stills and the process that goes into creating the final work. I went to a photo shoot last week where I took some Polaroids of behind the scenes. I’m thinking Id like to make them into a scrapbook of some sort.

Hope you all had a great weekend!! x Liss

  6. Lovely scrapbook. Jane Campion creates wonderful films – Angel At My Table was the 1st I saw, then The Piano and now, Bright Star. I thought it was wonderful but my partner fell asleep! Each to his own I guess …

  7. I agree with you Liss, the creative process is always very interesting. This is wonderful, makes me smile.

  8. This is a great post. Thanks for sharing it. I don't know if you realize but her name is Campion and not Champion. Just wanted to let you know so you could fix it. Otherwise it is a very interesting post.

  9. Loved it. Saw on huge screen at AFI…beautiful. Campion was very generous to put storyboards, etc. on the website…& pls forgive but I'm an editor & hope someone would tell me…

    there's no 'h' in surname. Not criticizing…believe me.
