The Making of 'Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?'

5

It all started with a cup of coffee one Tuesday afternoon after work and the idea struck me...

Credits: guanatos

I was having a cup of coffee outside the office with lilithmoon and we were talking about several plans and ideas we had in our heads. It had been quite a while since the last time we had worked together on a LomoKino Movie and we were eager to come up with something new.

We were talking about getting together with some friends and making a picnic now that the weather was getting nicer; and just as she mentioned something about going into the forest, it struck me. We should take a classic fairy tale and give it a twist, with two different director’s cut.

At that moment we both screamed, “Let’s do Little Red Riding Hood!”

Our imagination started to fly and we came up with the concept of creating a tough hero out of Little Red Riding Hood. Joking about it I said, let’s call her _Big Red Riding Hood! She laughed and told me her idea for her reboot of the classic story (she’s currently editing her movie so I don’t want to give away any details).

I got my trusty notebook out and started jotting down the ideas and drawing frames for the storyboard (analogue style) so we could both have a better idea of what we needed and a general view of how the story would be filmed frame by frame. Having the storyboard and a very simple script was really helpful when the day finally came!

We got together with minilidia, sibux, Victor, and Felix and started a full morning of fun through the woods and even a picnic with the stuff each one brought.

Lilithmoon shot and directed her film first and I helped out with the reflector disc to get the accurate light specially for the faces and then once she was done we switched. Since the both the Wolf and Big Red Riding Hood had their make up ready, I started to explain to them a bit what I wanted out of the story. I had to transmit to them how, the character of the little fragile girl had to evolve into someone that’s not afraid throughout the mini movie.

It was really important to save the twist for the end and not give the surprise at the beginning, that’s why I had minilidia run away from sibux as if she was running away for her life, while the wolf was stealthily “hunting” her.

The viewer never sees both characters together in the same frame until… you know what, why don’t you have a look at Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? and see for yourself what happens:

    Wonderful movie!! I haven't been able to find this again, but I saw on You Tube a couple years ago, an early, silent cartoon of Red Riding Hood as a nasty tween who is getting in the way of Granny and the Big Bad Wolf getting a good relationship going. In the cartoon, Red ends up in the roasting pot. (!!??)

    @herbert-4 thanks a bunch, if you do find that silent cartoon please share, I'd love to see it :) I think these twists on classic fairy tales are very fun
