In "Disney's Princess Academy", director/writer Olivier Ciappa and I wanted to create something that would bring back the somewhat lost respect for hand drawn animation as an art form. By doing so, we decided that the entire look and feel of the short movie will be inspired by the worlds greatest works of art.
At the Academy building, not only the 'princess' would have a place, but all of Disney's leading female characters. The building itself was to be a gigantic complex, with a feeling of an ancient palace with fountains, gardens, paintings and statues.
This concept art is one of many work that was conceived by us for the interior design of the Academy. OLIVIERCIAPPA.COM
