MAGNETIC has three dream sequences inspired by Alice in Wonderland that we knew we wanted to be very surreal and ’60s feeling, our main inspiration being Salvadore Dali’s dream sequence in Spellbound. We commissioned kristilyn to be art director on these sequences and she did an amazing job pulling in all of the influences while also working with the imagery of the rest of MAGNETIC.
We shot these in May at Oberon, making ample use of their black space and spotlights!
Dream One: Spider

We were very lucky to have the help of Tamora Gooding, Rachel Leah Blumenthal, and Amy Macabre (fr L to R) to play the animal characters! Also on set, we had our head PA, Zach Pidgeon and Dave Green helping out on second camera (in addition to our cinematographer, Kelly Davidson).
