The exactitude of Joyce’s language in the novel is backed up by a clear vision of Dublin and it’s people he has on that particular day in 1904. While I hope to bring some of that accuracy to this project frankly, I could use some help.
Do you have any idea about what the room looks like in Martello tower? What kind of tea service or frying pans the boys might have had? well, I’d be happy for any links.
Same is true of clothing and street scenes in Dublin from this period. One of the hallmarks of making a good period piece in film is authenticity, but in film there’s scores of people doing that research for you. My training is in painting, not costume design, so I’d be happy for any experienced help I can get.
Links are appreciated.
