Visual images and inspiration from past films and Directors


My hope would be to use almost bright-dark colors, meaning to say
very bright colors throughout the darkness. Sepia/blacks with greens.

I would like to try and eliminate Blue and Yellow all together. Only show
on screen Browns-Reds-Greens and darks.

LIGHTING EXAMPLES—Shadows with candlelight etc.



--Oliver Twist – Roman Polanski- D.P. – Pawel Edelman
--Brazil – Terry Gilliam – D.P. –Roger Pratt

--Tideland – Terry Gilliam – D.P. – Nicola Pecorini

I would love to play with the idea that we as the viewer are almost
looking through the puppets’ eyes—Lower angles lit beautifully with

shadows and candlelight would be perfect.
Wide Angle lenses are my preferred choice, especially for this Project.
My reason: Because we’re in a smaller location and I think the wide-
angle view would not only help elongate the set, but also with the idea

that the story takes place in a surreal, almost far-fetched reality
(because the entire movie is actually a puppet show.)

This will apply specifically to the end when the children are looking
down at him as a puppet. They must seem wide and big like a giant.


Jean-Pierre Jeunet

If you have yet to see Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s films, please do. They are my
biggest inspiration visually as a filmmaker and his work ethic is
MicMacs (2010)

Delicatessen (1991)

City of Lost Children (1995)

Amelie (2001)

A Very Long Engagement (2004


Terry Gilliam is perhaps my favorite filmmaker of all time and his use of
the wide angle is pretty much his full on trademark—However, it’s also
his crazy stories and his zany imagery that excites me.

Brazil (1985)

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988)

12 Monkeys (1994)


This film was mostly inspired by my own fear of death and the idea of
getting older...

The idea that we are all in same way nothing but puppets due to reality
and the governing powers, is also a huge inspiration.

Obviously, Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi was a major factor behind the


The entire world of “Stryngs” is most likely 1880s England.

Think Dickensian or Victorian era (one in the same really) yet we will
never truly know the time. All that is known is that the clothing is old
and dark.


The Colors in this painting by Gustave Dore are impeccable and perfect.
A beautiful touch of darkness yet has bright colors throughout. The only

color I would like to have eliminated is the blue.
