When creating the visuals for the black class the aim was to lower saturation, too add more blacks and greys, but also mix it with touches of the 'scene' style and anarchy. Characters of the black class are those of rebellion who live in the run down, tightly populated parts of urban society. They put off a tough, I don't give a shit attitude which comes across in their style, a mixture of punk accents and contrasts of black and white colors. Even in their state of repression, images of hope and and freedom should also be assoicated with them
The general aesthetic I was trying to capture in the gold class was that of vintage class, power and grace of the monarchy, but with a modern twist. Warm tones are the obvious choice here, one mainly being gold. Also, prominent pops of red were an addition to not only outline the seductive allure of the gold class, but also have the hint of power come across.The architecture will be modern with a twist of old world grace, a lot of open spaces but with touches of classic royalty. The dress will be similar, one with couture like dreaminess mixed with defined lines and luxiourious fabrics.
Here is our scouted area for scene 4. The location needed to be a college classroom. The classroom needed to look futuristic, because the show is placed in the future. That’s why I took one picture from behind the desk, to see all the technology that was there. I wanted the room to seem blank, nothing special, just a classroom with no personality. I also wanted to show that this classroom held both classes, Gold and Silver. I had a thought about “separate but equal,” so the Gold sit on the side with the windows, where light comes. Their side is clean and nice. The Silver side on the other hand, has some trash on the floor and is in the darker side of the room. We can also see from the teachers desk that it is easier to see the Gold side so they have preference. Even in this “integrated” classroom, there are class separations.
