Miss Atomic Bomb


I absolutely loved the soundtrack to Miss Atomic Bomb. It reminded me a bit of The Book of Mormon - and all the characters are very earnest and the songs both poke fun at and celebrate that innocence. It's about a beauty pageant that took place in the town near the atomic bomb testing in America in the 1950s, and I was asked to create something with a bit of a 1950s Las Vegas feel to it. As the whole thing is very tongue-in-cheek, I didn't hold back on the sparkles and the glitter - I wanted it to look quite over the top and showy, poking fun at the totally uncynical attitute towards the bomb testing.
