Setting The Scene: Film Design From Metropolis To Australia - Softcover


  • The War Room in Dr Strangelove; the Kit Kat club in Cabaret; the 'bullet time' sequence in The Matrix - many of the most iconic and memorable cinematic environments have been significantly shaped by film designers. As 'architects of illusion', film designers 'set the scene' for how the film will be visualised
  • Focussing on the works of internationally acclaimed designers, the exhibition Setting the Scene: Film Design from Metropolis to Australia, presented at ACMI in 2009, celebrates the key role of film designers in the history of cinema, from the 1920s to today
  • With fascinating illustrations that look behind-the-scenes of the film production process, each of the essays collectied here examine the themes of the exhibition. They provide rare insights into how film designers shape the dramatic, emotional, and visual nuances of cinematic worlds
