An initial brainstorm on the character .I have decided to interpret Julia , I believe the changes in her character throughout the book captures the audience. There are a lot of areas in the book, where I would like to visually interpreted Julia . I would like to capture her emotions , how she is able to transform someone from hating her to being in total love with her. Julia manages to get Winston to fall so deeply in love with her , that there is a feeling that this is not the first time she has been able to control a man . This also develops a new control over Winston , not only is he being watched by Big Brother, he now has Julia who is the controls all there meetings . Julia is the person who decides where they meet, if they meet and for how long, even to the point of giving Winston instructions of how to get to a meeting point and how to exit one.
What era does my character live ?
The book was written in 1948/9 about how George Orwell visioned the future .
What does environment look like ?
Set in Oceania , London . The city is being constantly bombed so there is smoke and dust in the air . The housing near the bombings are described as 'chicken huts'
Everything is grey with the only colour used in the posters of Big Brother .
Clocks are read using digital description (e.g fourteen hundred hours)
The 3 of the Ministry buildings are tall and glass windows , the ministry of love is all concrete ( no windows) and has security around the building, no one is allowed near the building for 1/2 km , there is barbed wire protecting the building.
the electric is cut off at certain times of the day so the environment is using just natural lighting .
Telescreen watch every movement and are grey with mirrors in them .
Helicopters hover around the city like flys watching into people's window to ensure that the society is kept in check .
