  2. Choreography by: Lea Thurman

    This episode, set in an old world carnival in Ryan's front yard, was inspired by early filmmakers George Melies and Robert Weine, with emphasis on visual spectacle, including a combination of music, dance, and variety acts.

    George Melies was a French filmmaker famous for leading many technical and narrative developments in the earliest cinema. Because of his ability to seemingly manipulate and transform reality through cinematography, Méliès is sometimes referred to as the First"Cinemagician." His most famous film is "A Trip to the Moon," in which a spaceship hits the eye of the man in the moon. This film is also considered to be an important step in early science fiction or fantasy films.

    Robert Weine is known for directing one of the most influential of German Expressionist films, "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari," which is often considered one of the greatest horror movies of all time. This movie is cited as having introduced the twist ending in cinema.

    The first Expressionist films made up for a lack of lavish budgets by using set designs with wildly non-realistic, geometrically absurd sets, along with designs painted on walls and floors to represent lights, shadows, and objects. The plots and stories of the Expressionist films often dealt with madness, insanity, betrayal, and other "intellectual" topics.

    We touch on that madness with a fortune told by the somnambulist, or sleepwalker. In Robert Weine's "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari," Dr. Caligari is displaying the somnabulist as an attraction at a carnival. Caligari brags that Cesare can answer any question he is asked. The somnambulist makes a grim prediction to one of the characters.

    In The Spectacle, our somnambulist also makes predictions.

    Trivia: The somnambulist's prediction is a direct quote from the Greek tragedy, "Oedipus Rex," by Sophocles. - A bit of foreshadowing for a style in a future episode, perhaps?

    Fun Fact: The giant tea cup was painstakingly made by Jamie and Genie from two 4'x8' pieces of styrofoam board.

  3. The fifth chapter of the Stalker Chronicles was inspired by the comedic stylings of Neil Simon, particularly his works “The Odd Couple” and “Barefoot in the Park.” This genre of comedy is characterized by creating humor from the lives and troubles of everyday people. The characters are grappling to handle their feelings in difficult situations, and releasing tension with humor.

  4. In the Season 2 premiere, the girls profess their love for Ryan through spoken word poetry.

    The Beat Generation is a term used to describe a group of American writers who came to prominence in the 1950s, and the cultural phenomena that they wrote about and inspired (later sometimes called "beatniks"). Central elements of "Beat" culture include a rejection of materialism, experimentation with drugs and alternate forms of sexuality, and an interest in Eastern religion.

    We were particularly inspired by the work of Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and William S Burroughs.

    Jack Kerouac is recognized as an important writer both for his spontaneous style and for his content which consistently dealt with such topics as jazz, promiscuity, Buddhism, drugs, poverty, and travel. His writings have inspired several prominent writers, including Hunter S. Thompson, Tom Robbins, Thomas Pynchon, Lester Bangs, Will Clarke, Richard Brautigan, Ken Kesey, Haruki Murakami, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, and writers of the New Journalism.

    Allen Ginsberg was an American poet who vigorously opposed militarism, materialism and sexual repression. In the 1950s, Ginsberg was a leading figure of the Beat Generation, an anarchic group of young men and women who combined poetry, song, sex, wine and illicit drugs with passionate political ideas that championed personal freedoms.

    Major literary works of the Beat Generation include the novels On The Road by Jack Kerouac and Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs, as well as Ginsberg's epic poem Howl, in which he celebrates his fellow "angelheaded hipsters" and excoriates what he saw as the destructive forces of capitalism and conformity in the United States.

    Fun Fact: The rollerskate used to propel that Yin Lady backwards was the same skate from Episode 1, "Waiting for Ryan Braun." Each prop has specific meaning and significance in the series.

  5. The second chapter of “The Stalker Chronicles” was inspired by Tennessee Williams. In his Southern Dramas, the common themes were madness and broken dreams.

    This genre of theatre is characterized by the portrayal of the loneliness of life. There is an emphasis on the irrational, the desperation of humanity in a universe in which cosmic laws do not work, and their tragi-comic examination of the conflicts between the gentility of old Southern values and the brute force of new, Northern values.

    Trivia: The lines, "The light is empty, sun forestalls reflection," are directly quoted from Tennessee Williams' poem, "The Wine Drinker."
