Here is a influence map I have created for the patisserie environment in France around 1900's:
To complete my research in understanding how people lived in this era, I have also found a couple of vey informative videos, they show the social live of France in this period, and mainly the designs of the buildins, monuments and stores.
As part of the animation is set in a fictional cake world, where our patissier is imaging the cake decoration.I have decided to research how this world would look like. For that purpose I found a few pictures.
Research for the "Cake" World
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Wizard of OZ
As I mentioned on a previous post, iwant the "cake" World to have a specific look, I want the objects of this world to be oversized and to have very vivid colours, very bold, to evoke the idea of sweetness.
