The look of Tarsem’s Immortals really stuck out to me and I wanted to find out where the idea came from. After looking at various interviews and watching the bonus features I found out that the visuals were inspired by Renaissance painter Giovanni Bellini I compared images from the film and the artist painting and it was quite striking to see how similar the works looked against each other, the lighting plays a strong part in creating such a magnificent visualization. I would like to take this on board when lighting my own sequence. see images below. I also feel a need to insert my CG elements into this visual world because I think it will be nice to integrate 3d into the shadows of the compositions.
