Production Designer: Architect of the Imagination
Room 23ABC
The production designer reads 100 pages of nothing-but-words-on-paper and then must literally dream up the most perfect of all possible worlds in which the tale should take place. Though the story may be set in some mythic past, the here and now, or some nearly unimaginable future, it's always human emotion rendered in color and composition. And following that, the designer must gather and organize an army of artists who, over months or years, in plaster or in pixels, will somehow render that design for the big screen. Featuring Richard Bridgland (The Commuter, American Ultra), Scott Chambliss (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Tomorrowland), Howard Cummings (Westworld, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief), Naomi Shohan (A Wrinkle in Time, The Walk), and moderator John Muto (Home Alone, Species).
