Swapping TV scripts and sets for a canvas and student life at NYU, pimpom decided to catch up with Dylan for an exclusive chat about his biggest passion.
Articulate TV/Movie actor DYLAN SPROUSE is embarking on a new and exciting creative path. As filming for the third season of his hit Disney Channel show The Suite Life on Deck comes to an end, Dylan begins preparations for university and will be starting his Fine/Studio Arts and Economics degree at NYU this fall.
As stated on his official website, “Art is my biggest passion.. and is what I want to do for the rest of my life alongside acting and even after I leave the acting industry” (sprousebros.com). And so far things are going well. In 2006 Dylan drew and created the characters William and Shady which have just emerged as 3D figures and launched at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego last week.
Dylan also recently set up an art blog – sprousearts.com – to talk about his favorite artists and artwork along with his upcoming works and designs.
So, what is he most looking forward to about his course at NYU, is there a ‘best bit’ to toy designing and who are some of his inspirations? pimpom caught up with Dylan to discuss all this…
pimpom: What form/s of art do you find best to express your creativity and what are you looking forward to learning more about on your course at NYU?
Dylan Sprouse: Normally I use ink and watercolor, and during my NYU experience I’m looking forward to learning more about the human anatomy and how to sketch it, my true artistic weakness lies in that of the face.
pp: Who are some artists you admire? Do you have a particular favorite piece of work or set of workings?
DS: I enjoy Joe Ledbetter’s, and Francisco Goya’s style, but if i were to choose any artist in history it would have to be Hieronymus Bosch because of his twisted style.
Dylan with the “William and Shady” figures he created and designed
pp: With your interest in Fine Arts and video game cultures, what’s your take on the debate over whether video games can be counted as an art form?
DS: It really depends on the game i suppose, such games as Shadow of the Colossus and Grim Fandango I consider art, but so many other games just consist of mindless violence….doesn’t mean they aren’t fun however hahaha
pp: It must have felt like a great achievement when a character you created (William and Shady) became made into figures and launched at Comic-Con. Is designing and that process something you’re planning and wanting to do more of?
DS: It’s not so much the process i love, for it is long and boring, but more the outcome of the process that is most rewarding, seeing something you created with your hands become a toy sculpted by a master of his craft is similar to the birth of a child from the artist’s standpoint (though I havent had a child just yet), it’s fantastic to view the final product, and you can only hope it does well in it’s lifetime. After all is said and done, you feel more like a father than an artist.
pimpom wishes Dylan a successful and fun freshman year!
“The Suite Life Movie” is the third iteration of the popular comedy franchise, including the hit series “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” and “The Suite Life on Deck.” The movie stars Cole Sprouse, Dylan Sprouse, Brenda Song, Debby Ryan, Matthew Timmons and Phill Lewis, who all reprise their roles.
The action-adventure-comedy supports Disney Channel’s brand of storytelling with themes including “believe in yourself,” “celebrate your family” and “follow your dreams.”
The storyline finds Zack and Cody facing the relatable challenges of growing up, especially as twins, but now they also must depend on each other to navigate the mysterious Gemini Project and its leader, Dr. Olsen.
Filmed in Vancouver, Canada, the movie utilized a variety of local sites including the Vancouver Aquarium which serves as the fictitious Pacific North West Marine Biology Reserve. Its staff of dolphin trainers is also seen in the movie. Other locations include a passenger ferry at Deas Island, which served as the exterior of the S.S. Tipton; Flavelle Mill as the sawmill at the Gemini Project, in Port Moody; and the Wildplay Adventure Park at Maple Ridge, site where the aerial obstacle rope course was filmed.
In the movie, Cody receives an opportunity to participate in a prestigious internship program, abandoning the plans Bailey made for a perfect spring break together. Upset, Bailey cuts off all communication, leaving Cody sadly pursuing his dreams alone at the Pacific North West Marine Biology Reserve.
During Cody’s orientation, a true to form Zack mischievously gets inside a billion-dollar deep sea submersible, accidentally breaks through the sea wall, and launches the equipment into the ocean, losing it forever. As a result, Cody is kicked out of the program and vows never to speak to his brother again.
Soon thereafter, the brothers are approached by Dr. Olsen, head of the Gemini Project, a high-tech research center studying the dynamics between twins. He offers Cody a scholarship to Yale in exchange for his participation in the Gemini Project research, with Zack. After much contemplation, the boys embark on a 50-mile journey to the Gemini Project and agree to stay on its campus for the week.
There, the boys befriend two other sets of twins – Nellie and Kellie, and Ben and Sven – who display odd similarities.
Soon, the boys find themselves interconnected like never before: when one twin experiences a sensation, thought or feeling, the other twin feels it too. Their feelings become more and more real, causing tension between the brothers that they do not understand. In one scene, the boys fight each other by beating themselves up – a scene choreographed in perfect unison by Dylan and Cole Sprouse.
Though Zack and Cody are very different, they soon become more alike than ever and strange occurrences including being chased by more than 65 sets of twins, make them resolve to work together to uncover the truth about the Gemini Project.
“The Suite Life Movie” stars Cole Sprouse as Cody Martin, Dylan Sprouse as Zack Martin, Brenda Song as London Tipton, Debby Ryan as Bailey Pickett, Phill Lewis as Mr. Moseby, Matthew Timmons as Woody Fink, John Ducey (“JONAS) as Dr. Spaulding, Matthew Glave (“The Wedding Singer,” “Army Wives”) as Dr. Olsen, Katelyn Pacitto (“Everybody Hates Chris”) as Nellie and Kara Pacitto (“Everybody Hates Chris”) as Kellie.
The screenplay was written by Michael Saltzman (writer of “The Pink Panther,” executive-producer of “Murphy Brown”) and Robert Horn (writer of Broadway’s “13,” writer/producer of “Designing Women,” writer of “Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure”). “The Suite Life Movie” was directed by Sean McNamara (executive-producer of “Even Stevens,” producer of “That’s So Raven,” director of “Zeke and Luther”); executive produced by Pamela Eells O’Connell (“The Suite Life on Deck,” “Family Matters”), Irene Dreayer (“The Suite Life on Deck,” “Sister, Sister”), Jessica Rhoades (“Den Brother”), Cole Sprouse and Dylan Sprouse; and produced by Tracey Jeffrey (“Psych”). The movie was created by Danny Kallis (“The Suite Life on Deck,” “Who’s The Boss?”) and Jim Geoghan (“The Suite Life on Deck,” “Family Matters”), and developed by Danny Kallis and Pamela Eells O’Connell.
