Behind the Scenes: The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters!

Following on from our Cape Fear-inspired anniversary special, we again drew inspiration from a classic movie for this week's episode.

Here is a selection of images from Hitchcock's 'Spellbound', particularly the dream sequence, together with our equivalents on those brilliant scenes:

We aimed for similar lighting, but with greater contrast, as is more our style.

"Tell me all about it...!"

At the opening of Dali's dream sequence, a myriad eyes overlap and move about, becoming the strange curtain of a night-club.  

Our reference is via the hypnotic gaze of the mysterious scientist-analyst figure. 

Dali's trademark ever-lengthening black shadows run through the sequence.

We went for a generally high-contrast feel, with some abstract shadows thrown in.

In our night-terror scenario, our old adversary The Crow, took flight once again, terrorising its victims through adopting a range of frightening proportions.

Our hooded figure may seem like a reference to Magritte, but he is more a version of the faceless night-club owner from the Spellbound dream sequence.

Look out for a further Dali reference in Monday's instalment.  

If you have been affected by any of the images in this week's episode, please contact us immediately and we will direct you to suitable help!

Stay tuned, and join the adventure!
