Stranger Things Video: Go Behind The Production Design Of Season 2!

It goes without saying that Stranger Things is a series that struck a chord with many audiences. Had it not, it wouldn’t have become the cultural phenomenon it is today. While a good portion of that can be attributed to the story, direction, and acting, there is no denying that the production design of the show also plays a huge role in setting the tone and expectation.

In a new video from Netflix, they take us behind the scenes of the production design with 18-time Emmy nominee production designer Chris Trujillo. In the video, he starts out by discussing the main starting points they had in their discussions of the look of the series.

“We discussed all of the classics that are very obvious–your Goonies and your Spielberg films,” Trujillo recalled. But, of course, Stranger Things has a tendency to get a bit darker than those films, and the production design needed to reflect that. “Then, it got really exciting for me when we started talking about Klute, Silkwood–these other darker, little grittier American movies.”

So how hands-on were the show creators — the Duffer Brothers — in the creation of these sets? According to Matt Duffer, they pretty much leave them alone, which I can imagine adds to the effect when the first walk onto the sets.

In the rest of the video, they discuss the creation of the video game arcade, the underground tunnel system, and the houses.
