As concrete and systematic the world we live in seems to be, it is the product of centuries of visionary designs, inventions, and creations by imaginative thinkers who have envisioned a world beyond the one they lived in. Production designers who are tasked with creating entirely new worlds and alternate universes must be able to think freely and outside of the box in order to imagine and render these narrative worlds. In this session, various production designers will explain how screenwriters, filmmakers, and producers can create entirely new worlds where their films will be set. Discussing methods, and showing digital tools available to manifest these ideas will be the main focus of this interactive panel with production designers Alex McDowell (MINORITY REPORT), Uli Hanisch (THE INTERNATIONAL), Habib Zargarpour (THE BOURNE IDENTITY), and acclaimed visual artist and photographer Thomas Demand.
