About the course
Production designers make a vital contribution towards creating a tangible world through visual storytelling. They need to be able to develop their own ideas, work independently, and also in collaboration with others. You will explore key aspects of screen design, from script analysis and interpretation, to researching skills, development of concepts, design approaches and finding interesting ways of presenting ideas.
- Rather than accepting easy conventional solutions,the emphasis of this course is on developing your own interpretation through exploration and experimentation in response to a narrative.
- In order to facilitate this, participants will be asked to bring homework in progress to each class, so that they can develop their own ideas and skills base.
- It is also important that participants engage with group discussions in order to fully benefit from the course.
- You can also expect to spend some time watching examples of films.
You will finish the course with an introductory knowledge of skills required by the film industry such as model making and technical drawing. In addition, the course will give you an insight into the processes involved in an art department.
