Space and Environment: Cinematic Spaces- Influence maps

These are my influence maps for my two stories which will help me develop my ideas and thumbnails to decide about the final pieces.

Concerning the second two maps, they are about my second story The Red Room and it clearly shows some Victorian decor images as the story was during the Victorian era and contained some descriptions about Victorian decor. The story took place in a French Castle called Lorraine, then I soon found out that Lorraine is a region that contains different castles, so I included an image of a castle in that region.
