For lesmis69minprompts : Day 1 - Favourite character
So yes, 69 minutes are shorter than I expected but here we go. I chose Montparnasse today (because my sketchbook is already full of Jehans and Combeferres).
The 69 minute challenge today was Favorite Scene, which, wow, EMBARRASSMENT OF CHOICES. But this is one I’ve somehow never drawn?!? HOW IT’S ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS IN THE WHOLE STORY, Gavroche and Bahorel tearing up the streets and smashing stuff apart FOR JUSTICE (and the sheer joy of smashing I mean let’s be real).
Prompt 2 for the Les Mis 69 minute thing, which was to draw your fave scene. Enjolras and Grantaire’s moment on the edge of glory, put on your shades cuz I’ll be dancing in the flames, etc. It happened exactly like this there is nothing different about what I have drawn.
Favorite scene in the brick was probably eponine’s daughter of a wolf speech.
I’m stuck in the office of my moms school, I made use of the children’s markers and ancient white out pens around me.
Jumping a day late into yesterday’s Les Mis 69 minute prompt for drawing your fave character (although I didn’t actually keep track of time but it felt about an hourish). Grantaire is mine, no surprise . I’m so happy I got a new tablet pen in the mail today, mine broke on Sunday. Huzzah!
"Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is in talks to bring his stage Hamlet to the screen. The play begins performances at the Barbican next year, and negotiations for it to be filmed live and shown in cinemas through National Theatre Live for one night are well advanced.
The actor, along with the production’s director Lyndsey Turner and producer Sonia Friedman, has spent more than a year ensuring that this will be a ‘people’s Hamlet’.
‘I felt very strongly that as wide an audience as possible should have access to it,’ Cumberbatch told me.
The Barbican’s allocation of seats for the entire 12-week run, which starts on August 5 next year, have been snapped up already.
But there will be 100 seats available per performance. ‘They will be sprinkled throughout the house … they’re not behind pillars,’ the 38-year-old joked.
He said that he and Ms Turner were eager to make their Hamlet as ‘fresh’ as possible, ‘like a new play that just landed as a pdf in someone’s computer inbox at the Royal Court’, as he described it.
‘We want to escape the idea that it has been done before, and we’re looking at the whole play — not just the eponymous hero.’
Benedict is a thespian polymath. There’s no role he cannot take on.
We had met to discuss another of his projects: a towering portrait — one of the great performances of the year — of Alan Turing, the man who helped break the Nazi’s Enigma code, in the film The Imitation Game.
Watching the movie, I was struck by his approach to Turing: the way he grasped and captured the man, not just the cliched genius. The film is all the more heartbreaking because of it.
The Imitation Game shows how the boundaries of class and status were broken by the disparate group gathered at Bletchley Park.
‘That was an incredible, rag-tag group of brave, stoic, quiet heroes,’ Cumberbatch marvelled.
‘I say rag-tag, in the sense that they were mathematicians, physicists, crossword enthusiasts … really anyone who had an intellect and a prowess that might help solve this puzzle.
‘Turing may have had eccentric behaviour; he may have had certain tropes of being different, but this was a whole team of “different” people, brought together in a crisis.’
The star said that Turing was guileless about his sexuality. ‘When he was arrested by the police he told them outright that he’d had a sexual relationship with another man.
‘He just gave them the information, and the sad thing was that he’d been with a rent boy. He’d never had a stable relationship’.’ [x]
