Production Design Studio

The World is not Enough

Our world is the product of millennia of visionary designs and inventions by imaginative thinkers. Filmmakers envision possibilities beyond the limits of current reality and lead us on journeys to outer space or deep into the obscure corners of the mind. But how are these worlds conceived, designed and created? In the Production Design Studio, World-Building experts will explain how writers, filmmakers, designers, artist and producers can create unique worlds as the settings for their stories. Advances in technological possibilities and creative and collaborative methods have allowed makers to redefine what is possible for narrative media and storytelling. Embracing interdisciplinary and non-linear approaches, participants will use new inception and development processes to understand how to prototype and manufacture the imagination to approach the future of storytelling. At the core of the studio sessions, Talents will reexamine the creative process itself, to discover and develop new ways of seeing, thinking, iterating and collaborating.
