Theatre, film and television are highly visual practices. They all require the expert input of the designer to imagine and create their physical environments, to generate character and costume, and to organise the overall visual experience of the work.
In the theatre, Production Design (or Scenography) is the creation of a space in response to text, music or dance: an imagined world. Central to the process is an ability to imagine, analyse, to interpret and invent. In the television industry, the Production Designer designs and creates a visually distinctive and effective environment to give each particular production (current affairs, gameshows, drama etc) its own unique visual identity. In the film industry, the Production Designer must create convincing sets in studio but also adapt existing locations to the production's requirements. In all three areas, the Production Designer works closely with the director and a creative team, communicating through the use of scale models, sketches, paintings, technical drawings and digital media.
