The Darjeeling Limited

Rather than post all at once, I figured I'd update periodically as I move along in the project. Why not :P

First my movie title brainstorm which features some of my favorites:

  • The 400 Blows/Les quatre cents coups
  • The Darjeeling Limited
  • Taxi Driver
  • The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
  • A Clockwork Orange
  • The Shining
  • 28 Days Later
  • Pan’s Labyrinth

In the end I decided on Wes Anderson's "The Darjeeling Limited" not only because I LOVE the movie, but also because it might allow me to experiment with color which I think would be pretty cool. Right now I don't know what direction I will take with the design, but I took some good notes so I'm prepared to push myself and experiment.


This is the start of my warm up research:

  • Nouns: train, India, misadventure, feather, journey, snake, cough syrup
  • Verbs: bond, travel, chaos, reconnect, fight, run, argue, distrust
  • What happens/action: Three troubled brothers bicker and tackle chaotic situations as they attempt to bond during a journey across India
  • Main emotion: Underlying love hidden behind mistrust and the need to let go of the past

I hope I got that right :x

Next up, visual research and sketches!
