Film Design + Production

Film Design + Production banner

The Film Design + Production program at UArts is a University-wide program that explores the creative and artistic areas of production design involved in filmmaking. The program is intended to develop film artists such as production designers, art directors, costume designers, set designers, lighting designers and sound designers.

The program introduces students to five artistic focus areas: costumes, sets, lighting, sound and technical production. After a foundation in film production design, the program builds student experience and skills in one or two chosen areas through a series of practicum courses – mentored guidance for a set of realized film projects.

Students in Film Design + Production create a thesis project in their final year that involves realized production design work on a film project and thorough documentation and formal presentation of the artistic process and methods involved.
