An Introspective Conversation with Production Designers
Saturday, August 24, 2019 | 10:00 AM
Hyatt Regency Atlanta
A frank conversation on how to influence culture through production and set design without being labeled as a black designer for black productions. The few production designers in the business are usually called to provide advice or direction on projects that are for a black show. Typically, after sharing and providing insight, executives and the like realize any one of color or not can provide direction. This panel will explore how to navigate this and more.
The objective will be to shift the rhetoric to focus on the fact that there are many talented designers and some of them just happen to be black. Panelists will also share the highs and lows of production design and what it takes to excel in film and television.
