Costumes<br />Jenny<br />Helps relay to the audience what decade or important event is going on at the time<br />Examples<br />Hippie outfit at protest <br />80’s clothes while partying<br />Simple country clothes while home in Greenbow<br />
Jenny’s hair also help represent what phase of her life she’s in.<br />When she’s a young girl or, later at home with Forrest her hair pulled back or neatly styled. <br />When she is out partying her hair is down and a mess kind of like her life.<br />
Lieutenant Dan<br />Lieutenant Dan also helps convey what stage of life he’s in through his hair.<br />When he’s in the Army or at the end when he’s cleaned up and found God he is clean cut and shaven.<br />Like Jenny, when his life is a mess he has long unruly hair and a scraggly beard.<br />
Photography<br />When Forrest is at home resting the camera seems more still and motionless<br />When Forrest is at war, running across the country or fishing for shrimp the camera seems to always be moving<br />Either panning, zooming in or out, or flashing between characters<br />
The cinematographer embedded Forrest into real life footage.<br />He used tapes of many historical moments and people and seamlessly added Forrest as if he was really there.<br />This gave the audience a more personal connections with the film especially if they had lived to see that event or person.<br />
