Production Design for Film and Television MA
What will you study?
You will develop skills in production design for both a studio environment particular for television, or script-driven drama intended for television or cinema. In the former you will deal with the creation of a purely televisual world, designing built scenic elements and using lighting and technology such as LED panels to create a particular environment.
For drama productions you will learn how to enhance the script through the visual elements, dealing with the architectural structure of the set, the practical lighting, locations, the choice of colour and texture in the form of props and fabrics, as well as the practical management of the process.
What is production design?
Production Design can be broadly separated into two types:
-a production that requires a studio environment particular to television; or
-script-driven drama where the output could be intended for either television or the cinema.
