Description

Production Design - The Interior in Film - is an elective that looks at how consumer environments (interiors) are represented in Film to understand and support the design and visualisation of Interior spaces across the discipline.

This subject will use the whole or extracts from the following films as a basis for our spatial analyses;

Nostalghia (Tarkovsky), Blade Runner (Scott) Alphaville (Godard), The Royal Tenenbaums (Anderson), Parasite (Bong), Ran (Kurosawa), Lost in Translation (Coppola), Rope (Hitchcock) In the mood for love (Wong Kar-Wai), A Clockwork Orange / 2001 (Kubrick), Breakfast at Tiffany's (Edwards), Inception (Nolan), The Piano (Campion), Monsoon Wedding (Nair), A Separation (Farhadi), and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (Lee).

Assessments are based on Drawing and Annotating selected scenes in the Films resulting in a portfolio of annotated Drawings.

The focus of this elective is on production design; therefore, our concentration will include descriptive and comparative analysis of:

  • Light (harsh, hard, soft, diffuse, natural, artistic, tinted),
  • Shadow
  • Frame
  • Colour
  • Materials
  • Composition
  • Props
  • Furniture
  • Period
  • Mood
  • Atmosphere
  • Costume
  • Setting
  • Point of View and Technology
