More Storyboards-Entering the Cathedral
So this is the space Br. Thomas walks through every day on his way to work. If you can’t tell from the images (but I hope you can) he feels a little out of place in such a beautiful and austere environment.
The challenge for me in these boards has been to establish a somber tone to the scene and create an almost overwhelming expansiveness to the space. I really want Br. Thomas to feel small and insignificant in the shear weight of all the beauty, history and religiosity. Light and shadow have a lot to do with this as well. The church fathers are merely stone monuments but for Thomas the long shadows they cast only serve to increase his already heightened sense of not belonging.
