the makings of mortal engines

I'm really looking forward to seeing Korean musician and actor Jihae play Anna Fang in the upcoming Mortal Engines film! She's incredibly striking, I had to draw her:

Universal Pictures are posting a bunch of really interesting looking featurettes on YouTube. Here are some clips of Anna Fang, with screenplay co-writer, producer and second unit director Peter Jackson talking about Philip Reeve's character:

And I love these peeks at the craftspeople behind the film; I'm quite envious, it would be fascinating to work on teams like these ones. Here's a featurette on the work of Principle Design Coordinator Naomi Campbell, Lead Pattern Drafter and Cutter Anna Deacon, and Costume Machinist Melissa Mundi:

Propmakers Terence Turner, Robert Nairn and Dave Irons:

Model maker Alex Falkner:

The painters: Textile Artist Assistant Hannah Webster:
"I really like to draw trees, so this is perfect."

Concept artist Nick Keller:

Key Breakdown Artist Hamish Brown and Costume Breakdown Artist Sonia Murray:

Scott Harens, Special Effects Supervisor:

Just a reminder, if you want to catch up with the books, here they are:
* the four Mortal Engines books
* the Anna Fang book (Night Flights, three short stories illustrated by Ian McQue)
* the three Fever Crumb prequels
* The Illustrated World of Mortal Engines, brand-new and co-written by Philip Reeve and Jeremy Levett, illustrated by David Wyatt, Ian McQue, Philip Varbanov, Rob Turpin, Maxim Plasse, Adel Fakhrie and Amir Zand

Philip Reeve, talking about Jeremy Levett and The Illustrated World of Mortal Engines:
