Open lecture by production designer Sabine Hviid
22 November 14:00-15:00 (EET) @ Nordic Hotel Forum, Arcturus and industry.poff.ee

Production designer of „Another Round” and „The Penultimate” discusses method designing as an effective approach to establish the visual language of your project. S. Hviid: „Just like a method actor seeks to encourage an authentic performance through a process of identifying a characters inner life and experiencing being, I believe a similar method can be applied to how one approaches designing a space. A room is nothing without the history and layers of a character. Therefore there is great value in getting to understand those characters, who inhabit your spaces, as deeply as possible. This is how I begin my work on narrative projects.”

Open Lecture by production designer Christian Olander
24 November 11:00-12:00 (EET) @ Nordic Hotel Forum, Arcturus and industry.poff.ee

Production designer of „Tom of Finland” and „The Master Plan” discusses the challenges that continuously evolving and changing script creates for the Art Department and the whole production crew. C. Olander: „The script continues to evolve during pre-production and filming. How does the art department deal with all the changes and hurdles that come with script revisions during prep and shooting? How to work with and around the changes? The lecture discusses how the production designer has to adapt during the pre-production location settings with the scripts. The modifications occur often due to the changing shooting schedule or varying budget necessities. The lecture is based on my experiences and focuses on the art department, namely set dressing and props.”
