Reign: the Conqueror and Fellini's Satyricongreenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread
I saw the CN debut of Reign last night, completely by chance (don't have cable at home, but I am traveling and the hotel does). As soon as I saw the camera angles, the costumes, the graphic design, I knew it had to be Peter Chung's work. Great job! I saw in another comment in this forum that Peter liked La Cittą delle donne, so I was wondering if Satyricon or Guiletta degli spiriti influenced the series. There are a lot of similarities between the design of the Technicolor Fellini flicks and Reign, not the least of which is the occasional bystander staring blankly into the camera as it passes by.
Also, will Peter be attending any cons or giving talks this year? I travel a lot and would love to give props.

Chung only did the character designs supposedly. A lot of the rest does look a lot like Flux, including the voices, but I don't know how much he had to do with it.
