WEBSITE OF THE DAY: ART DEPARTMENTAL

“This week I had the chance to discover Art DepartMENTAL and I just dived into it for hours. It’s an incredibly rich website that should interest anyone receptive to visual inspiration and solid content… Art DepartMENTAL is the first website that I really enjoyed with such a specific angle.”

CONFESSIONS OF A HOLLYWOOD JUICER

ANOTHER WEDNESDAY PHOTO

“‘Art DepartMENTAL’ – an absolutely wonderful name for a blog detailing what actually goes on deep in the bowels of the Art Department… Art Department takes care of the sets. Headed by a Production Designer, the Art Department designs, builds, paints the sets on stage or on location, among other things. A couple of people make the decisions, while an army of carpenters, painters, and floor people (carpets, phony hardwood, linoleum, and tile veneer) do the work. Other than a stand-by painter on hand for any last-minute painting or aging of the set, the Art Department is usually gone by the time the actors, director, and the rest of the first unit crew arrive to shoot the scenes. Art DepartMENTAL takes you into that world.”

Art DepartMENTAL …because art direction matters,” is the tagline of Art Departmental and the greatest reason you should start reading this site. It’s chock full of interviews, case studies (called “production design porn”), and generic industry advice. But you don’t need me to tell you that — once you go visit and see the pretty pictures yourself, you’ll get sucked in.”
