Production Designers and Art Directors

Exploring This Job

Developing your own artistic talent is one good way to explore your interest in the field of production design, and this can be accomplished through self-training (reading books and practicing); through courses in painting, drawing, computer-aided design, or other creative arts; or by working with a group of friends to create a movie. At the very least, you should develop your "creative eye," that is, your ability to develop ideas visually. One way to do this is by familiarizing yourself with great works, such as highly creative motion pictures, television shows, videos, or commercials. Finally, ask a teacher or school counselor to arrange an information interview with a production designer or art director.
