The production designer creates the world in which the characters live - from a Texas farm setting or an exotic fantasy location to 1970’s set dressings or science fiction prop guns.  Constructing this world is a delicate balance of discovering the story and understanding the characters while still having the pressures of the schedule and budget.
In the FilmSkills Production Design Course, you will learn how to shape a convincing world around your characters - from the basics of how to build a flat to advanced set design and construction techniques.  Learn the skills to break down a script and design and dress a story-centric set.  We detail the roles of the art department, production designer, art director, and construction coordinator.
Working Hollywood production designers in the FilmSkills Production Design Course will help you craft a stunning world in your movie.
