"Packed with full-color film stills, exclusive pre-production artwork and behind-the-scenes production images, this book reveals how the designer is crucial in the creation of place, character and narrative through the use of distinct design elements. Using examples from real-world projects, this book provides practical guidance on the complete design process, from breaking down the script and developing ideas through research, to creating drawings, model-making, constructing sets and choosing locations. Five key design elements are explored in detail, namely light, color, space, character positioning and set dressing, providing readers with a rich source of inspiration and the tools needed to take a project from script to a set ready to shoot on. The book includes seven case studies, developed from exclusive interviews with world-renowned designers, revealing the concepts behind some of the most engaging imagery on screen and the strands of visual metaphor that conveyed them. Taking into account a range of production budgets, Production Design for Film and TV provides filmmakers with an inspiring, yet practical look at the process of designing for screen"-- Provided by publisher.
