House of Fabelmans

Movie The Fabelmans Steven Spielberg (2022)
Sammy Fabelman (Mateo Zoryon Francis-DeFord) and his parents (Michelle Williams and Paul Dano) are driving home from a screening of the movie The Greatest Show on Earth. The little boy laments that his house is the only one not decorated for Christmas. A scene produced at 19805 Needles Street, Los Angeles.

“- The lights change how everything looks. It’s hard to find our house.
– Ours is the dark house with no lights.”

Burt (Paul Dano) and Sammy Fabelman (Mateo Zoryon Francis-DeFord)

Los Angeles has often had to disguise itself to look like other cities. In The Fabelmans, Needles Street, in a residential neighborhood near Santa Clarita, has become a small New Jersey street. The 19805 house was home to the Fabelman family before they moved to Phoenix, Arizona.

Once upon a time Steven Spieberg

A thinly disguised autobiography of Steven Spieberg, The Fabelmans benefited from the expertise of director of photography Janusz Kaminski. The latter having already worked with the creator ofE.T. on works such as Schindler’s List, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan, Minority Report or Munich and War Horse.

A story of light

Janusz Kaminski told the website Screen Daily about his work on The Fabelmans, his twentieth film with Steven Spielberg: “What I learned from The Fabelmansis we are both fascinated by living your life through movies and making movies for the love of it, and having them be such a big part of your life.

1960’s inspiration

To create the light for The Fabelmans, Janusz Kaminski was inspired by the lifestyle magazines of the 1960s: “My perception of that period is very innocent. I love beaut­ifying light and beautifying story­telling; I’m not interested in faithfully representing the reality of the ’60s and ’70s. It’s the story of a kid growing up in an almost idyllic environment. And I wanted the story to be bigger than life, more beautiful, romantic. It’s a fable. And the fable allows you to be more theatrical and more classical with the lighting.


The Fabelmans earned seven Oscar nominations in 2023.
