Production Designers Gathering: Building Worlds on Screen

October 20
11:00 ET
How do we create a world that doesn't exist? What is a designer's role in devising storytelling and visual guidelines for an invented world?

Our panelists share their experiences working in a variety of genres and periods, from antiquity to fantasy. They discuss their development process, research methods and tools for transmitting their vision to others.
