George and the Dragon. Barwood and Robins rejected the traditional conceptions of the medieval world in order to give the film more realism: Instead we set out to create a very strange world with a lot of weird values and customs, steeped in superstition, where the clothes and manners of the people were rough, their homes and villages primitive and their countryside almost primeval, so that the idea of magic would be a natural part of their existence.
Barwood and Robins began to hastily work on the story outline of the film on June 25, and finished it in early August. They received numerous refusals from various film studios, due to their inexperience in budget negotiations.
Graphic artist David Bunnet was assigned to design the look of the dragon, and was fed ideas on the mechanics on how the dragon would move, and then rendered the concepts on paper.
Bunnet also designed the dragon to have a degree of personality, deliberately trying to avoid creating something like the titular Alex and the dragon in the lake from Alienwhich he believed was "too hideous to look at".
The parts were flown to Pinewood Studios outside London in the cargo hold of a Boeing Dennis Muren, the effects cameraman, stated, "We knew the dragon had a lot more importance to this film than some of the incidental things that appeared in only a few shots in Star Wars or The Empire Strikes Back.
The dragon had to be presented in a way that the audience would be absolutely stunned. Chris Walas sculpted and operated the dragon head used for close-up shots.
The model was animated by a combination of radio controls, cable controls, air bladders, levers and by hand, thus giving the illusion of a fully coordinated face with a wide range of expression. Phil Tippett built a model for the scenes in which the dragon would be required to walk.
Tippett did not want to use standard stop motion animation techniques, and had his team build a dragon model which would move during each exposure rather than in between as was once the standard. He built a model with an articulated aluminum skeleton in order to give it a wide range of motion.
Ralston shot films of birds flying in order to incorporate their movements into the model. As with the walking dragon, the flying model was filmed using go-motion techniques. The camera was programmed to tilt and move at various angles in order to convey the sensation of flight.
McNicol had to learn horse ridingboth English style and bareback for the role. McNicol found this difficult, saying that "They took away my stirrups, they took away my reins and whipped the horse, and then they told me to windmill my arms and turn a complete circle in the saddle.
Then they took away the saddle! Her agent insisted, though, and after doing an audition tape, was called back for more tests.
Clarke failed them, but managed to pass after doing another test at the insistence of Matthew Robbins. She got on well with Ralph Richardson, and stated that he taught her more in one rehearsal than in years of acting classes.
Next, Scott built the entire village of Swanscombe on a farmside outside London. The shots of the Welsh and Scottish landscapes were extended through the use of over three dozen matte paintings. Mathew Robbins Director can be seen monitoring through the camera. Nearly all of the outdoor scenes were shot in North Wales.
The final scene was shot in SkyeScotland. The filming crew were based in Betws y Coedand the artists were stabled further down the Conwy valley. Many locals were hired as extras during this scene. The lair was shot looking upwards from the road, towards the broken face of Tryfan, Nant Ffrancon. The scenes of the delegation crossing over into Urland were shot above Ogwen CottageNant Ffrancon.
The scene where Galen Bradwarden sees an apparition in the lake was shot at the bottom end of Llyn Crafnant. Costumes[ edit ] The costumes were designed by Anthony Mendelson, who consulted the British Museum, the London Library and his own reference files in order to make the clothing evoke the designs of the early Middle Ages.
Mendelson designed the costumes to be roughly stitched and the utilised colours were ones which would have only been possible with the vegetable dyes then in use.
The costumes of Casiodorus and his court were designed to be finely silked, as opposed to the coarsely woven clothes of the Urlanders. The score was largely based on five major thematic concepts: He later stated that he had written "a very lovely waltz for when the dragon first appears, with just a slight indication that this may not be a bad dragon".
The waltz was scrapped in favour of tracks used earlier in the movie. Despite the omission of the dragon- reveal waltz, the score was widely praised. Pauline Kael wrote in the New Yorker that the score was a "beauty", and that "at times, the music and the fiery dragon seem one". Brown of Fanfare Magazine praised the soundtrack as "one of the best scores of ".CEC Theatres - Movie Theaters in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Wisconsin.
