    This workshop is open to the public as a part of the FILM 5 and Trainee programs. 

    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 within the art department, the conceptual sketches and ideas that designers produce, 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.
