International Production Design Week:
A celebration of production design around the world

When : 20 - 29th October
Where : Seminars Available Online 

design is the craft of creating the visual environment of stories told on screen.

Production design encompasses the analysis of a story’s aesthetics, construction of physical and digital sets, selection and alteration of locations, landscaping, decoration of interiors, fabrication of graphics and procurement of props and vehicles.

The production designer creates and develops the overall look, atmosphere, and visual world of a project

The production designer works closely with the director, producer, cinematographer, costume designer and others to construct the overall aesthetic of the story.

Assisted by members of the art department, the production designer translates the director’s vision into a physical landscape.
