“It was sup­posed to look like the open­ing of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ — 18th cen­tury and based on Charles Per­rault fairy tales. But I had to con­sider the fact that it was 100 de­grees and be­ing shot in Pasadena. That was the No. 1 con­sid­er­a­tion for how we get all of these ac­tors to be able to move around, sing and dance and not sweat off all their makeup. The tech­ni­cal side of it was fig­ur­ing out a light­ness to the pet­ti­coats and corsets. The cre­ative side of it was mak­ing it look like a Dis­ney fan­tasy, so how to use brighter col­ors.”
