The Historical Genre – An 11th century street in Jerusalem (III)

With the help of the google SketchUp model I made earlier, I then used photoshop to try and render a possible design for a street in Jerusalem. This helps to show the way the set could be dressed:

I have also done a small drawing elevation with photoshop of one of the elements that could be added to the street: a small wooden bridge/house that links two buildings. It is supposed to be quite crooked and look slightly unreal, as I would like to bring some fairy tale elements into the real world.

Although the adaptation is meant to be set in the real world, the story is still a fairy tale. Therefore, there needs to be elements that hint to the audience that something magical is occurring on screen, all the while keeping it mysterious and subtle.
