Mood Boards

These mood boards are designed to spark ideas and possible colour palettes. As always the overall effect of these colours isn't predetermined and can be transformed in a myriad ways - placement of light source, the other colours being used, intensity, colours of scenery and costumes, and more.

We offer these palettes as simply a nudge in the right direction.
