28 September 2017, London. The Big Draw Festival is the world's biggest celebration of drawing,
organised by The Big Draw charity (formerly the Campaign for Drawing), and this
year Bond in Motion at the London Film Museum is offering visitors the chance
to release their inner artist with a variety of activities celebrating the
Living Lines theme.
Lines: An Animated Big Draw Festivalis open to a wide range of interpretations from animated,
theatrical, illusionary, technical or just plain messy. Visitors to Bond in Motion will find the inspiration to spark creativity from the original items on display from the 007 film series
including concept drawings, storyboards, scripts, model miniatures and full-size
cars, boats, and motorbikes.
Visitors can take part in three complimentary art activities
in October; design a 007 disguise, create a fantasy James Bond storyboard, and contribute
to a collage wall by drawing a scene from their favourite 007 adventure.
A selection of the finished designs will be posted
on the London Film Museum social media pages with Bond in Motion prizes awarded
for the best creations.
Many James Bond vehicles, costumes and
unforgettable movie scenes started life as a storyboard or concept drawing.
From Dr. No in 1962 through to Spectre in 2015, the James Bond
films have featured the work of incredibly talented designers and artists who have
imagined, drawn, painted and created some of the most fantastic and futuristic
ideas ever to feature on the big screen.
Throughout the exhibition, guests can admire and
take inspiration from the work of visionary James Bond Production Designer Sir
Ken Adam, one of the most significant production designers of the twentieth
“We are delighted to support The Big Draw
initiative,” said London Film Museum Founder and CEO, Jonathan Sands. “In October,
we are offering visitors to our permanent Bond in Motion exhibition in Covent
Garden the opportunity to take part in three James Bond themed art activities
which we hope guests of all ages will enjoy.”
