Behind the Scenes: Luna Tunes?
Following on from last week's cartoon-inspired mystery, we used a back projection referencing the Looney Toons title background. The radiating circles could also reference the stellar event of the week - the partial eclipse of the sun - experienced over Britain. Our featured characters each have their weaknesses; drink and money, and here we see them falling for both.
However, it's also something of a frame-up.
Just what exactly is going on? Maybe Monday's instalment will make things clearer.....perhaps......maybe.
