Set DressingDeveloped by Jason Tomaric, FilmSkills
ABOUT THIS LESSON
Most constructed sets are empty rooms, void of life and character. Set decorators bring in everything from rugs and drapes to items on surfaces, artwork on the walls, and anything the actors do not touch. The quality of the set dressing not only adds to the visual impact of the frame, but to the characters themselves.
This module takes you inside the set decorating process, on a tour of a Hollywood prop house, and gives you dozens of tips and techniques for dressing your set, whether it's on a soundstage or a real location.
