WHAT IS A PRODUCTION DESIGNER?

THE PRODUCTION DESIGNER’S PLACE The production designer has several bosses: the producer, the unit production manager, and the director. Assisting the production designer are the art director, who executes the production designer’s plan; an art department coordinator, who handles the paper work and tracks the budget; one or more set designers, who do the construction drafting; a set decorator; and an illustrator, who creates sketches. The art director and production designer also supervise the work of the construc­ tion and paint departments.
