5.0 out of 5 stars Film-lovers... buy this book!, 24 Aug. 2013

This review is from: FilmCraft: Production Design (Paperback)
A must for anyone interested in Production Design, or even film in general - it isn't so heavy as many other books on the subject, but it informative enough to shine a new light on filmmaking.

The book consists of interviews with Production designers and art directors in the business - some of the best. This is why it is so fantastic - there is no muddling between a narrator and someone who has real experience in the field. The interviews are honest, but this only made me want to pursue my dream of working on film production more.

Look out for the page on Sarah Greenwood, who headed the designing of the set for Atonement. It was the inspiration for one of my university dissertations on set design narrative, and very interesting for anyone particularly interested in the use of colour in film. Green is my favourite colour so it was lovely to read about it's rare use in film, as it is perceived to portray awkwardness, anxiety and nausea (see Hitchcock's The Birds).

For anyone who is interested in the part of filmmaking that looks at visuals, making, creativity and atmosphere, as opposed to the stars and red carpet glamour.
