Sketches at Filmpark Babelsberg
In my last article One for all I showed my first sketch of our day at Filmpark Babelsberg. Despite being there only for three hours we saw a lot more than the show of “The Three Musketeers”. So I made a few more sketches.
First I did a sketch of a beautiful red dress at the “Dreamworker” atelier. My three men are unfortunately not that excited about “clothes” as I am. So I did not have the time to ask more about the displayed costumes. But I saw a small sign telling the visitor that the costumes even may be tried on – with the help of the staff. In addition to the beautiful variety of costumes you can take a glimpse behind the scenes. There are workshops about sculpturing, make up and many more interesting facts.
My husband and my kids were curious of the original “Löwenzahn House Wagon”. Löwenzahn is a famous German TV show that started in 1981. As my husband and I both are born in 1982 we grew up with Peter Lustig explaining the world to us. And so do our children now despite the fact that the famous wagon is now inhabited by Fritz Fuchs.
Edgar Allan Poe’s gravestone
Edgar Allan Poe’s gravestone can be found in the Medieval Town. I guess this refers to several films based on Poe’s literature although I did not found out which film has a link to Babelsberg. But the titles I found make a fine list for the upcoming winter time.
Very interesting was the film set of “Little Mook“. The Little Mook is one of the classic fairy tales played at theaters for children at Christmas time. I did watch it several times in my childhood. And of course I know the movie of 1953. Even my son went to a stage play of Little Mook a few years ago. But as he does not know the film yet he asked whether the set was meant to be Disney’s Agrabah. So there ist the next classic film on the list for winter time.
