PROJECT Kuurolan Perhe (Kuurolan Family)
DESCRIPTION Internet drama series
IN ASSOCIATION WITH Kuurojen Liitto (The Finnish Association of the Deaf)
DIRECTED BY Eero Enqvist
PRODUCTION DESIGN BY Mimi Violette
SHOOTING LOCATION Helsinki, Finland
SOME DESIGN NOTES Kuurolan Perhe had essentially needed a sitcom-like set designed; a cloak room, living room, kitchen and “believable” architecture of doorways leading to other unforeseen rooms. I conceptualized a visual drawing in ink and watercolor of the space(s) for the predominantly deaf and Finnish construction crew to communicate the overall aesthetic to-be-built.
I took scenic photographs of urban Helsinki buildings and had them printed in poster-size to be hung “outside” the set’s windows.
