In a film set, an art director is responsible for all of the artistic and visual designs used for a production. It is the Art Director’s job to realize the Production Designer’s creative vision for all the sets and locations that eventually give productions their unique visual identity. They work on feature films, commercials and some types of television productions.
The art director starts work when they receive the script and final schedule detailing the precise shooting order of the scenes. They analyze the script to identify all props or special items that may require longer lead times. At the same time, they oversee the drawing up of plans of sets and locations by Draughtsman for the use of the Construction- Managers and team.
In our course we mean a detailed class and follow-up training with a talented art director as a faculty member.
