The Role of the art director (In film)

An art director is a person that collaborates with set decorators and set designers. In the hirachy of all designers they work below the production designer, my group appointed me the position of an art director so I wanted to do some research on the role.

Responsibilities for Art Directors include

  • Leading the art department budget and scheduling 
  • Preparing locations
  • Getting props 
  • Constructing special effects

For my group i will be purchasing the blood for the leading scene, taking photographs and making sure that the location fits with the Mise en scene!
