Do you recognize this loft from the crappy picture I took of my television over the weekend?
Here’s another clue:
Tom Hanks’ loft in the movie “Big” is one of the best, most fun set designs I’ve ever seen. It still stands up today. The guy’s got a Pepsi machine, a pinball machine, blow up dinosaurs, bunk beds, and best of all, a trampoline. That would surely require some really high ceilings and some sneaking in past the co-op board!
Sometimes I think we all take design too seriously. Sometimes I look at it so much that I get burnt out. Then I watch a movie like “Big” and start to think about lightening things up and approaching design like a kid, and I’m reinvigorated.
