FilmCraft is the ground-breaking series on movie-making from Focal and the Ilex Press. Each book covers a different aspect of the art of film-making-the most multi-disciplinary of all the arts-offering in-depth interviews with a host of the most distinguished practitioners in the field. Given the space to explain their working methods and tell the stories behind their best work, they offer unparalleled insight and invaluable creative knowledge, which, combined with a wealth of behind the scenes imagery, film stills, notes and paraphernalia, make the titles in this series invaluable resources for students and critics of film alike. Production Design, the fifth title in the series, will address one of the most important roles in cinema. Production designers are responsible for the 'look' of a movie; joining productions at an early stage, they co-ordinate areas like costume design, special effects, set design, make up and locations to ensure that the film has a unified visual appearance.
