About

"Production Designers create and develop the overall look, atmosphere and emotion that move the story. As visual artists and story tellers, the Production Designer consults primarily with the Director through the conception and creation of stage sets and the selection and alteration of practical locations and backgrounds. Production Designers also collaborate with the Visual Effects team, and provide the designs necessary to maintain a coherent blend between the look of the production, cinematography, and the post-production visual effects footage."- Art Directors Guild
