Gallows Hill – Fort Salem

From Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1. In the original script, there’s a powerful layering of imagery and a blurring visual boundaries during the Gallows Hill scene. What we think is real is only pretend and what we discover to be “real” in this world is fantasy in our own. Working with show runner Eliot Laurence, we created the baroque theatre imagery by drawing inspiration from the street spectacles of 18th century Italy & France.

As Bruce Mau says: “Begin Anywhere”.

I’ve noticed that often scriptwriters/producers’ offices are filled with figures and objects that are used for working out senarios and dialogue. Building on this, I created my own series of objects to have on hand as visual story telling idea generators.
