A Monster Calls, The Movie!

September 27, 2016

I got to see the finished film recently (sat next to Patrick Ness at a private showing). Blimey, is it emotional. What a wonderful film, and Lewis Macdougall is simply incredible. Congratulations to Bayona, and everyone involved, you did an amazing job. If you go and see it, take tissues, it’s a moving movie. Follow this link to watch the trailer.¬†


I was lucky enough to be asked to do some concept work for the film, which can be seen in the new Collector’s¬†Edition of the book, published by Walker Books. I WISH I could have done more, but I was so busy on Potter. The Collector’s Edition is extremely well put together, by the way, showing behind the scenes footage, set design, concept art. I’m a big fan of these sort of books. (The Hobbit production design books are wonderful, for example). What I really love about the film is seeing Conor creating pictures using the same technique I used on the original book! The attention to detail too, just astonishing. Anyway, it’s out soon – go and see it!
