Packed with colour film stills, exclusive pre-production artwork and behind-the-scenes production images, this landmark book celebrates the production designer's contribution to visual storytelling on screen. It illuminates the visual concepts behind familiar screen spaces and unpicks how and why they are so effective in conveying character and story.
Seven case studies, developed from exclusive interviews with world-renowned designers, reveal the concepts behind some of the most engaging imagery on screen and establish a dialogue around the shared language of visual storytelling.
Jane Barnwell offers a groundbreaking new methodology for evaluating the designer's work on screen through five categories of analysis: space, interiors and exteriors, light, colour and set decorating. All of which combine to create the visual concept evident in the final on-screen imagery.
Practical exercises and examples of real-world projects walk you through the design process, from breaking down the script and developing initial ideas, to studio construction and locations. If you are a budding filmmaker, Production Design for Screen will inspire and guide you as you embark on your own work.
