[Talkcomic獨家] NETFLIX莎賓娜的驚慄奇遇 美術指導訪問

早前我地Talkcomic有幸獲得Netflix邀請,與Chilling Adventures of Sabrina的美術指導Lisa Soper進行了一個簡短的電郵訪問,以下為訪問內容,回覆之中文翻譯由Netflix提供。




Talkcomic: The original comic has a very specific mood and color, how are you going to approach these elements for the show?
Comic and live-action series are two very different media, how did you guys transform and adopt the elements from the comic into the tv series?
問:漫畫原著有一種十分獨特的氣氛,你們是如何處理這些獨特的風格呢?另外,漫畫和真人劇集是兩種非常不同的媒體,你們又是怎樣把漫畫的元素帶入劇中呢?

答:在這個令人憤世愱俗的時代裡,要重新想像備受兒童喜愛的作品,是一個能夠吸取經典驚悚劇集元素的絕佳機會。以《凶兆》和《大法師》電影為基礎,再加上現代感,就像是《怪奇物語》裡,也是從八零年代作品出發。但這部作品特殊之處,在於莎賓娜會讓觀眾害怕後留下陰影和創傷,例如過去觀眾看過《驚魂記》後不敢淋浴,我希望大家看完《莎賓娜的顫慄冒險》後,不敢走進森林。

我對這部作品特別期待之處,是能夠打造各種醜陋現實。劇集能創造無限可能性,我們可以先深入六零年代人們的恐懼,再向外推展出更扭曲的世界,同時探索現代女性成長的過程,這是一生難得的機會。想像自己身為年輕女性,在那個狂放的年代裡,機會隨自己的生活及欲望一同成長,這個時期的女性成就不僅能超越上一輩,甚至一度感覺無所不能,況且她手中還有魔法!

而且,設計是精美的謊言。身為設計師,我運用故事創造出風格一致且讓人信以為真的影像,為每集創造出栩栩如生的60至90分鐘的體驗。謊言愈貌似真實,我們就能操蹤愈多感官體驗,這也正是這份工作令人興奮之處。

這部作品裡有許多獨特樣貌,包括可愛又可怕的 Spellman 大宅、絕美如實的室內裝潢、電影片廠裡的美式風格、詭異的森林、甚至是 Baxter High,一切彷彿有了自己的生命。

一切都從森林開始。數百年前,巫師與自然共生,受到黑暗保護,我覺得以此為起點發展很重要,再進一步結合現代元素。大自然籠罩了某些場景,有些與屋宅相當和諧,有些則存有持續的衝突發生,代表某些角色創造出的壓力。

若想取信於人,要賦予「歷史」。為了創造尚不存在的歷史,我仿效 Hawthorn、Lovecraft、Barker 等作家的方法,從歷史中找尋靈感,屋宅的發想起點是 Salem Massachusetts,我深受這棟房子所吸引。有了初步靈感後,就能將焦點轉移至動畫背景,讓這棟房子呈現彷彿有生命的幻覺,再參考有關房子的審判、魅影等故事,讓這些元素逐漸組合出完美的樣貌。這棟房屋本身設計呈螺旋狀,不僅在異教徒信仰是重要符號,也呈現出螢幕上少見的畫面,房子裡每間房子連結永無止境,永遠不會走進死胡同,直到闖進太平間裡,生命之旅也在此告終。

Reimagining a beloved children’s show for our cynical age, gives a wonderful opportunity to suck on the rich veins of classic horror. Updating the sensibilities and mood of movies such as The Omen and The Exorcist with a knowing modern twist, in much the same way as the Duffer Brothers did for the 80’s with Stranger Things. But what makes Sabrina different is that she will scare the audience and leave scars. I want to make people as afraid to go into the woods as they were to take a shower after watching psycho.

It’s the chance to create a coherent nasty reality that excites me about Sabrina. The range of possibilities this show offers are unlimited. To delve into the 60’s people pine for, but then extrapolate to form a more twisted world, whilst exploring the experience of becoming a woman at the very cusp of the modern age is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Imagine being a young woman in those heady days as opportunities open up in step with your own burgeoning maturity and desires. It was a time when women could not only achieve more than their mothers, but a time where, for a brief moment, anything seemed possible – especially if you happen to have magic powers!

Design is the great lie. As a designer, I take the story and create coherent, believable imagery that contribute to building a 60-90-minute experience that seems real. The more believable the lie, the more senses we get to manipulate. That is the thrill of what we do.

What were your inspirations in creating its unique “look,” like the lovely but spooky Spellman mansion and its gorgeously realized interiors, the slice of Americana look of the Paramount cineplex, the eerie woods and even Baxter High. It’s like they have a life of their own.

It starts in the woods. Many many centuries ago, when witches were one with nature and the darkness protected them. It was important for me to start here. Where it all began and be sure to latch onto elements of that for the now. You will see nature literally taking over some of the sets. Some of them in harmony with the house, and some fight a continuous battle representing the oppression of some of the characters.

What makes something believable is giving it a history. So when creating a history for something that does not yet exist, I did what many writers like Hawthorn, Lovecraft, Barker and so many more did. I looked at history. The house started with looking at Salem Massachusetts. I was very much drawn to the house of seven gables. Once I had the initial inspiration, I was able to shift into my animation background to create the illusion of life for this house. I continually referenced stories about the Salem witch trials, hauntings, why the witch’s house is the crooked house and everything started to come together literally in a perfect spiral. The house itself is designed in the shape of a spiral, which is not only a powerful symbol in pagan belief, but also gives something to the screen that is not normally seen. I have a never ending link from and to each room in the house. You never dead end…. Unless you hit the morgue, where if you end up here…. Your journey in life has ended.

Talkcomic: Which set do you like the most?
Is there a unified tone in the whole environment of Greendale or is there any special location/set which has a totally different feeling to the audience?

問:妳最喜愛劇中那個場景呢?另外在整個劇的各種場景中是否有一個統一的主題呢?

答:這項問題很難回答,無論場景大小,我都會讓自己沉浸其中,也會是我當下最喜愛的一幕,這是我在莎賓娜宇宙裡誕生的作品,每一項都缺一不可。隨著時間或事件不同,我總能找到喜愛之處,與如此優秀的團隊合作,就是會有這項好處,有時候我走進場景裡,會發現領班當天有何不同的作法,因此注意到新的細節,或是從攝影指導的畫面中,總能為場景創造不同的深度。

This is a very difficult question for me as I tend to immerse myself into each set no matter how big or small and at that moment I tend to love that one most of all. These sets are my creations born into the Sabrina universe. The world is not complete without any one of them. Depending on the day, or what is happening in the scene, I always find a refreshing love for a set. This is also the beauty of working with such a well crafted team across the board. Sometimes I find myself walking into a set and seeing what a gaffer has done differently that day to draw attention to a new detail, or the framing a DOP will use that always seems to open a new door into the depth of the sets.

Talkcomic: Finally, were you a fan of Sabrina the teenage witch?
問:最後,請問妳自己是不是Sabrina漫畫的支持者呢?

答:我有讀過Archie 跟 Sabrina comic books,每當我看過書架上所有奇幻或驚悚小說後,就會轉向漫畫,漫畫剛好能和嚴肅的文字相互平衡。笑聲在生活中非常重要,事事不需全都嚴肅以對,當初讀到提案時,我就決定若有機會,我會在這齣劇集盡力發揮,還曾告訴母親「我一定要參與這部作品」。

Honestly, I would read them usually when I ran out of Barker, Tolkien, Elliot, Shelly and any other fantasy or horror writers novels I had on the shelf, but I feel it balanced out the seriousness of so much of the writings I would read. It was important to laugh. To not take life so seriously all the time. When I read the pitch, I had decided at that moment that I needed to show what I could do with this show if they let me. I told my mother I HAVE TO BE A PART OF THIS.
