Hi you all :) Got to get this in today to make it for the challenge over at Let's Scrap Sketches. The sketch for the 1st half of the month was perfect for a layout for LOAD517 Day 12:
Ben Hur – 1959
Everything about this film was big. The budget was the largest ever at this point, the set was the largest ever produced, the wardrobe designer oversaw 100 costume fabricators, a workshop employed 200 artists to create works of art for the film. Filming was 12-14 hours a day, 6 days a week for 7 months. More than 200 camels and 2,500 horses were used in the shooting of the film, with some 10,000 extras. It was the fastest-grossing as well as the highest-grossing film of 1959, in the process becoming the second-highest-grossing film in history at the time after Gone with the Wind. It won a record 11 Academy Awards, unequalled until Titanic in 1997.
Share a layout about something that became a much bigger project than expected.The famous chariot race takes place in a stadium that is curved at each end. Use curves or swirls in your layout today.
I thought about this a bit at work and then it dawned on me the photos I just printed of Dave cutting down the Tree in the front yard. A double page layout for all the photos from this big project that Dave took on.
