Production Designer

Production Designers transform story into meaningful visual environments where collaborators can create and capture performances for audiences.

This seemingly simple task is made delightfully complex by nuances of text, dialogue, source material, visual storytelling, décor, style, light, historical perspective, social context, research, and collaboration. The Design Ideal exists at the convergence of Visual Content, Story, and Authenticity, and is, by nature, unachievable in a production process; but there is endless joy to be found in the process!
