Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2

Production Designer’s Notebook #002

I created these images very early on in the development process, when the Directors were still figuring out the story and I was still figuring out the look of the sequel.

At this point in the writing process, the scene where Flint finds his Father’s house and his old Laboratory, was a much more personal and quiet scene. Flint had lost his way, and had been separated from his friends emotionally and physically.

So, when I thought about his predicament, I envisioned a sequence that featured light streaming in through the canopy, creating a stage where flint wanders in and out of shadows, spotting familiar objects, trying to find his way, until *crunch* he steps on an old family portrait. The familiar image of a happier time jolts him out of his stupor and he’s suddenly reminded of what he’s here to do: to protect those he loves.

(And by extension, save the world…again.)
