SCENE STEALER: Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium

It was a trip to Europe that spurred DePrez’s inspiration: Her set incorporates aspects of an organ grinder cart she discovered in Amsterdam, Victor Horta’s art nouveau Belgian architecture, touches of Edward Gorey and Rene Magritte and DePrez’s own love of antique toys. Visual effects were used only when necessary to prevent smothering the handmade environment in digital luster. “We felt that reality would be so refreshing to see onscreen, it would just ground everything,” she says.
