I just got back from the Oscar Nominated Production Design Panel Discussion, where I met an idol of mine, CATHERINE MARTIN!  She has spent the last twenty years creating the visual brand of Baz Luhrmann (production design and costume design), and everything she touches is flawless excess.  

I am proud to say I have seen all of her films in theaters, and she just gets better and better.

 

*******UPDATE: She won the Oscar for Art Direction and Costume Design!!! I never doubted it for a second.

 

 

THE GREAT GATSBY:  It is so beautiful my heart hurts.

MOULIN ROUGE: It has been over a decade and words still cannot convey how incredible these sets are.

ROMEO + JULIET: I don't know why people bother remaking this.  After hundreds of year, Romeo & Juliet peaked.
