INDUSTRY SESSION - THE ART OF THE BACKDROP

INDUSTRY SESSION - THE ART OF THE BACKDROP

Saturday 29th June 10:00 - 11:30 Zoom


ABOUT

The use of backings on feature films and HETV dramas has been highlighted regularly in recent discussions.  This Session will be examining the three most used backdrops - scenic, softdrop and volumetric - and considering the pros and cons of each. 

 

We will be joined by Production Designer James Price and Senior Art Director Rod McLean who will share their experiences of identifying  which were the most suitable to use on their recent productions, why they were the most appropriate choice and the solutions they found using them.  

 

James Price is an Academy Award and BAFTA winning (2023) Production Designer with a wealth of art department experience on feature films and HETV drama  including Poor Things, The Iron Claw, The Ipcress File and The Nest.

 

Rod McLean is one of the UK’s most established and experienced Senior Art Directors. He has over 35 years experience of working on a wide range of features, with credits including Wicked, Jurassic World: Dominion, Empire of Light and The Marvels.
