Inspiration. Suttirat Anne Larlarb, No Time To Die Costume Designer, tells us about the inspiration and making process of the movie mask... “We started from an initial piece of visual reference of a Japanese Noh mask because of its pure, expressionless, clean look. The first steps initiated were several days of clay sculpting to finesse the ‘expression’ of expressionlessness… which was a lot more difficult than that sounds. We wanted to remove anything that felt like an expressive human detail while remaining true to a human face - so the mask could reside somewhere between inhuman, artificial and a serene stare. We worked on minimising as many facial planes as possible, any spaces, sockets, dips where shadows could inadvertently cue an expression or depth - but I also wanted there to be enough dimension and reality so that it didn’t look flat. After several days of sculpting, and then several more sessions of me working with our sculptor, the mask was 3D-scanned into a digital model for the next stage of the design process. One of the 3D artists added the wood grain surface texture that is readable under the coats of paint on the surface of the mask - just as a real Noh mask would have."
