Nosferatu Dances to 'Poker Face'
Revisiting The Count/Nosferatu last night. Hilarity! My inspiration for the script was based much more on the Dracula stage play than either the novel or the film, and Andrew has been treating it accordingly. While the first arc is arcane - a gothic voyage into an unfamiliar land, in so many ways - The Count is meant to be stagey, broad, very showy. Andrew made comparisons to the performers in the movie-within-the-movie The Purple Rose of Cairo.
And yes, we finally blocked the final scene from Nosferatu. I need to clock those moves in front of a mirror.
