The look and feel of the film is inspired by several films, some contribute to the aesthetic while others evoke a similar mood. Stylistically we can look to MOONLIGHT, for its use of anamorphic lenses to create powerful character close ups. LALA LAND for its mindscape transitions. RAISING VICTOR VARGAS for its authentic Latinx coming-of-age feel. THE INCREDIBLE JESSICA JAMES for its unexpected girly urban charm. MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING for its multigenerational spectrum of cultural sentiment. THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO for its stunning capture of architecture and CHARM CITY KINGS for its urban backdrops.
