Even though it was directed by Jew hating, holocaust denialist, crazy Mel Gibson, Apocalypto is a great film. The setting and design was intricate without fault. This fantasy could have actually been quite close to what Mayan times could have been like…who know’s? Zoe bought it to my attention of how it relates to our production. I think that it may relate more to characters, but the temple settings and general mood of the film can be seen within our design and general ideas.
The background is a perfect setting in relation to our level. Old, but still has intelligence. The construction is directly linked to its natural surroundings, this can also be seen heavily in the style of dress. The fascination with temples and the gods, brutal and to the point.
