  • 1. Costumes, Make Up, Setting
    Savannah Wilcott
  • 2. Shoes
    Shoes are big component in Forrest Gump for many different reasons.
    The shoes with braces attached help spark up Forrest’s first conversation with Jenny
    Inspired the famous “Run, Forrest run!” quote.
    The shoes Jenny gives him that he runs cross country for over 2 years in
  • 3. Shoes cont…
    Lieutenant Dan also makes a big deal about making sure Forrest and Bubba keep their socks clean and change them whenever they can
  • 4. Costumes
    Vietnam War uniform
    Khaki pants or shorts with a tucked in button up shirt
  • 5. Costumes
    Helps relay to the audience what decade or important event is going on at the time
    Hippie outfit at protest
    80’s clothes while partying
    Simple country clothes while home in Greenbow
  • 6. Jenny’s hair also help represent what phase of her life she’s in.
    When she’s a young girl or, later at home with Forrest her hair pulled back or neatly styled.
    When she is out partying her hair is down and a mess kind of like her life.
  • 7. Lieutenant Dan
    Lieutenant Dan also helps convey what stage of life he’s in through his hair.
    When he’s in the Army or at the end when he’s cleaned up and found God he is clean cut and shaven.
    Like Jenny, when his life is a mess he has long unruly hair and a scraggly beard.
  • 8. Photography
    When Forrest is at home resting the camera seems more still and motionless
    When Forrest is at war, running across the country or fishing for shrimp the camera seems to always be moving
    Either panning, zooming in or out, or flashing between characters
  • 9. The cinematographer embedded Forrest into real life footage.
    He used tapes of many historical moments and people and seamlessly added Forrest as if he was really there.
    This gave the audience a more personal connections with the film especially if they had lived to see that event or person.
