I began production designing for film and theatre officially in 2011. I was approached to work on a short film for Cheesemint Productions. After working on that project I realised the design and making process was akin to designing and building installations. It dawns on me that I’ve been doing one form or another of production design or art direction since my A-Levels and as an undergraduate.
I like production design because it’s another means of creating different worlds from scratch. I’ve been fortunate enough to work on some great projects recently. For each one I was invited to have a collaborative role within the whole project which appeals to my penchant for Gesamtkunstwerk (total artwork).
