Hi Roger,
What were some of the major visual references which Andrew Dominik had the creative team look at on Jesse James? It is an incredibly beautiful film.

Thank you.

We found reference images and culled the ones that best reflected the feeling of each sequence. By the time we finished pre production the office corridor worked as a reference collage for the whole film. These references came from other films, from some of Andrews Polaroid shots, from magazines, a stills photographer's work and a number of paintings. But these were only inspirational. Andrew was careful to choose each and every location for what it brought to the film and we spent a great deal of time searching for the 'right' location. The film shot in Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg.
