Pinocchio Compositions

Black and white sketches of some environments and moments from the story. Clockwise from top left: an establishing shot, showing the large rock formations that occur around Haida Gwaii right next to the water. Pinocchio finds some petroglyphs out in the forest. A shot of one of a rock formation out in the water with the low cloud cover typical for the area that allows for such dramatic spotlighting. Geppetto and Pinocchio out gathering wood in the forest. Pinocchio solemnly walks among mortuary poles, which acted as graves for important individuals in Haida society. Pinocchio arrives on Pleasure Island, where he is greeted by a colony of strangely intelligent sea lions- fact is, these are the transformed bodies of other boys who disobeyed their elders and came to the island!
