Red: Granny

An important part of this project was seeing how far you could travel while remaining true to the original story.  I think there is an important aspect of our movie regarding this approach that may not be immediately obvious upon watching our film.

We wanted to maintain the idea that the big connection between 'The Wolf' and 'Red' was 'Granny'.  In the original tale 'The Wolf' takes 'Granny's place in bed to fool the unsuspecting visitor and draw her close enough to eat.  We wished to maintain this idea by setting up that Red was regularly visiting her Granny in hospital, whilst under surveillance from the wolf-pack. 

I feel as well as being an important part of the project, this is an important detail in the story, and potentially one that wasn't clear enough after watching our final cut.
