This thesis details the thematic purpose of relocating Marcel Camus’ Black Orpheus (FR, 1959) from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Venice, Italy, and the emotional, physical and metaphorical implications in changing this element of the film through production design. In this project I aim to justify and contextualize the aesthetic choices I have made in marrying conceptual fantasy production design with modern architecture through visual research, film theory, and concept analysis. Through digital modeling, storyboarding and rendering I have attempted to create environments in which the actors and director can create dynamic cinematic moments that speak to the film’s timeless themes in an environment wholly unrecognizable from the original film.
