Production Design for Long Form Seminar

As a part of the Screenwest Bright Ideas initiative, Production Designer Clayton Jauncey will be hosting a one-day seminar to talk to emerging filmmakers who are making those steps towards long form production.

The aim of this session is to talk about the relationship of design and the storytelling process, the role of the Production Designer, and the collaboration with the Director.

“Production Design is an essential part of building a visual language,” said Clayton Jauncey. “I think it’s good to connect with emerging filmmakers and reassure them that there is a way achieving a look, even with limited resources.”

The session will also cover collaboration with the other key members of the production like Producers, Director of Photography and Costume Designer as creatives goes through long form drama development to production.
