WORLDS BUILT TO ORDER: ART DIRECTORS GUILD FILM SOCIETY SERIES 2014
Presented by the American Cinematheque and the Art Directors Guild Film Society. Sponsored by The Hollywood Reporter.

Think of the luxurious interiors and spacious decks of TITANIC … the setting sun burnishing the interior of the Tyrell Corporation in BLADE RUNNER … the ancient monastery of Shangri-La in LOST HORIZON … the lonely silhouette of the Victorian house in DAYS OF HEAVEN (or PSYCHO). All these images are synthetic, purpose-built environments, exemplifying the creative contribution of the production designer - formerly known as the art director - to the filmmaking process. It is the production designer who reads the script and lets his or her imagination run free to conjure the best of all possible worlds in which to tell this particular story. In consultation with the director, the designer further develops and refines the visual scheme of the feature film or television production. Whether rendered in plywood and plaster, or pixels on a monitor by the specialists of the modern Hollywood art department, production designers supervise the creation of the physical world of style, atmosphere and emotion that seamlessly transforms the narrative space from words on paper to the sound, color and movement of the motion picture screen.

Join us at the American Cinematheque for the 2014 installment of our Art Directors Guild Film Society monthly screenings. Kicking off the series is an evening of episodes from the classic British TV series “The Prisoner,” followed in coming months by such richly visualized feature films as THE DEVILS and MONSIEUR VERDOUX.

Series compiled by Tom Walsh, John Muto and Gwen Deglise.

Panel discussions with industry professionals will accompany the screenings!
