Annie Atkins Weekend Workshop- Graphic Design for Filmmaking

Telegrams, love letters, prison escape maps… it’s not just the movie poster a graphic designer makes, but also any paper props that the actors work with on set. But how do you start designing graphics that can help tell a director’s story, as well as contributing to the genre, period, and visual aesthetic of a film?

This course combines classroom tuition and practical assignments, including:

  • When we design graphics for film, who are we designing for?

  • How a graphic designer works for the production designer, set decorator, and prop master

  • How to read and break down a film script

  • How graphics are used as storytelling devices

  • Researching graphic design and graphic methods from the past

  • How to avoid ending up on the IMDB Goofs page

  • How to draw and make graphics by hand

  • How to put together an optimal portfolio for applying for work in an art department

  • How to contact film productions looking for work

Please note that this is not a software course and we will not be using any computers whatsoever over the two days.
