GALLERY: Tarsem on Eiko Ishioka and the Fairytale Look of Mirror Mirror

"The first visual thing I wanted to crack was the forest – not the castle, not anything, but so much of this happens in a forest and the forest in stylized contemporary cinema right now is owned by basically Tim Burton. He has these gnarly trees and he lights them beautifully and it’s so wonderfully done, but I said, ‘How do I take it away from that?’ It was a big hiccup that I had, but within a week when the forest got cracked, I knew the movie would happen in no time in my head."
