I created an environment design for a feature animation film concept called “Éléanor et Emilie.” The story is about a rude hotel guest named Éléanor who meets a hardworking housekeeper named Emilie at a famous (fictional) hotel in France called L’Hôtel de La Tour. Éléanor is the kind of guest that looks down on help and feels she is better than everyone else. While Emilie, on the other hand, works so hard and is so passionate about ensuring the guest is consistently delighted that she tends to forgo taking care of herself. Their encounter leads to a series of events that change both of their lives forever.
This environment, in particular, showcases the towering hotel with the path that leads up to it. The mood is grimy and somewhat creepy--especially with all the cats just staring up at the hotel.
