Studies of David Niven
I'm currently developing an Animatic for a personal film. I've realised the pressure of a deadline is crucial to picking up momentum!
My main character is a gentleman, very dignified and elegant. In the film he gets himself into a bit of a scrape, but always maintains that stiff upper lip. I figured that if it was live action I'd get David Niven to play the part (if he was still alive)So I've been watching lots of his films and was really impressed by his physical presence. A little Buster Keaton mixed with Cary Grant.
