Film Lookbooks

Primarily used to show potential crew and investors what a film in-development is about, the vision, narrative, etc. Basically, a pitching tool. I’m interested in reading a few, if anyone has any.

Thanks.

I think Mobius made a legendary one for Jodorowsky's vision of Herbert's Dune. But I think the closest you're gonna get what is sometimes put into these lookbooks is what is shared in Art of... books, or books that publishers like Tashen put out; Tashen has an awesome book about Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and Verhoeven's Robocop. The Art of book for Mad Max - Fury Road features shots of pages from a note book George Miller kept. On those pages you can see how he developed his idea, his vision for Furiosa. From very primiteve scribbels to proof of concepts and look development.

I’ve found a few online for indies. Not really looking for large budget studio ones, though. Thanks for the responses. And, yeah, the Dune one is legendary. Why hasn’t that one been published?

There was publisher looking to put it out, but they ran into trouble with Moebius' widow, who wanted too much money.

It would definitely be a collector’s item more than a bestseller. Hope it sees the light of day sooner rather than later.

I recently made a lookbook for a short no-budget horror I wrote and will be co-directing soon in Colorado. If anyone is interested in taking a look at my meager photoshop skills or possibly participating in the production (unpaid but credited), I’ll be happy to send it along.

Please let me see it. I'm interested.

Good luck with the shooting.
