Where did they come from?

"Stranger Things" creators, writers and directors, Matt and Ross Duffer 'came out of nowhere,' according to producer Shawn Levy.

I got sent a lookbook that was kind of a combination of words and imagery that evoked the world of the show in their hearts and minds and I was so struck by how vivid it was. It was the kind of thing I love, but somehow felt I hadn’t seen in a long time.

Directing "Stranger Things."

Levy was surprised how inspired he was directing the show.

I have never directed anything quite like this, and as a result, I’m as proud of these episodes as I am of any movies I’ve directed.

In Levy’s opinion, "Stranger Things" is the announcement of a new voice in filmmaking.

Stranger Things marks the arrival of a new vision, and a new filmmaking partnership and brotherhood that is really noteworthy. We’re going to be talking about the Duffer brothers the way we talked early on, about the Coen brothers.

Home sweet home.

Having Netflix as the home for "Stranger Things was the perfect fit according to the Duffers.

Working with Netflix has been an amazing experiencing. They’ve been incredibly supportive of our vision from the very beginning, and they’ve placed so much trust in us. We also just love Netflix as a platform, because it allows people to watch the show at their own pace. This story is not necessarily intended to be watched over eight weeks. The hope is that people will get hooked and the crescendo will feel even more impactful when it’s watched over a relatively short period of time. We want the audience to feel like they’re watching an epic summer movie.

King of scary.

For us, the scariest stuff from what we loved about the movies growing up was with people who we could relate to with very ordinary people who have extraordinary things happen to them. To us, that is always scarier.

- Ross Duffer

According to Ross, he and brother, Matt, are heavily influenced by Stephen King and Steven Spielberg.

We were obsessed with their books and movies because it felt their stories were about people we knew and you throw in the monsters, supernatural and UFOs and it then feels like you’re experiencing it yourself. We were influenced by so many things - movies, videogames and books, and then we kind of put it in a blender and mixed it up.

What a ride!

What’s fun about the show is that it’s a bit of a rollercoaster - it has a little bit of everything. We follow three different generations: kids, teens, and adults. We like to think of each of these generations as existing in a different 80s universe. The adults are in a Spielberg film -- these imperfect individuals who slowly but inevitably come to realize that something very extraordinary is taking place around them. The teens are in an 80s horror film like 'Halloween' or 'Nightmare on Elm Street', where the pains of high school and the loss of innocence is juxtaposed with supernatural evil. And the kids are in a Stephen King novel, like 'Stand by Me' or 'It': nerdy outsiders from a small town who have to band together to face this terrifying horror.

Something for everyone.

We want everyone to watch the show. If you’re a 12-year-old, you can relate to the kids. If you’re a teenager, you can relate to Jonathan and Nancy. And if you’re an adult you can relate to Winona and David’s characters. The kids are based on who we were like as kids playing nerdy games in the basement so I think adults will also see themselves in the kids.

Still lots more ahead.

You haven't seen the last of our "Stranger Things" content! We have a lot more production stills and episode pictures still to come. Take a look.

Just one more thing...

We source series' screengrabs ourselves. And our on-set production stills come directly from the distributor. The result, then, is high-quality photos for you. If you're going to use them on your website, please give credit where credit is due.

Did you know...

Clicking a photo loads it in a gallery so you don't have to scroll. But doing that means you'll miss out on my witty and (sometimes) factual commentary. Oh, and if you're on a mobile device, you can swipe-up through the pictures without tapping. And if you want a closer look, tap the photo and zoom in. Easy peasy.

How to download...

If you're on a desktop or laptop, right-click on the image or picture you want to save. Then click 'Open image in new tab'. Then, go to that tab. Right-click on the image, and save it to your computer. If you're on a mobile device, lightly press down on the image and wait. In 1 or 2 seconds your device will give you several options from which to choose. Tap 'Save Image' and follow the instructions given by your device.

Before I forget...

This is a small, but dedicated site which explores binge-worthy TV and movies. I don't stream, but I do offer loads of information, reviews, pictures and scripts. Best of all, it's free! I try to add more and more each week. Thanks for being a part of our community of binge-watchers.
