This Art Department Intensive workshop will centre around what it takes to properly understand and break down a script in Art Department terms. We will look at the roles of the many positions in the Art Department as well as how the entire Department comes together. We will look at conceptual sketches and ideas that Designers produce and we will look at the layers involved in putting sets together and how colour affects the visceral response of a set. Finally, we will take a short film script and apply our knowledge in breaking it down and putting together concept sketches, colour palettes and set designs. At the end of the course, those showing an aptitude for this area of the film making process will be invited to join one or several Film 5 projects and receive some hands on experience.
