Stewart on Lynch-Robinson for ‘Les Miserables’

Eye on the Oscars 2013: Art Direction

“Les Miserables”
Production designer Eve Stewart on set decorator Anna Lynch-Robinson


“We’ve worked together a couple of times. The big challenge was finding enough stuff for all the barricades, looking for chairs, tables, dressers — anything period that could be tossed out of a four-story window. I did most of that with (director) Tom Hooper, and then Anna joined us. We also hired art students and sculptors — most of the props were handmade and it was a very craft-based film. The trickiest thing was when they decided to do all-live singing. Every prop, every horse and carriage had to be silent, so we were sticking rubber hooves on the horses, and all the (necklace) beads had to be made out of rubber.”
