Signs, posters, banners, flyers, magazines, newspapers, packages, vehicles wraps ... they're all around us in our daily life and therefore in nearly every shot in film and TV. But where do come from? How do they get from script to screen? What does it take to get from computer concept to physical object?

In our increasingly digital production environment, graphics has become an integral part of the production design process. Successfully creating graphics for what's in front of camera is far more than just a working knowledge of design software. This weekend workshop will introduce students to:

⦁ The Art Department - who are these people and what do we do?
⦁ Breaking down a script specifically for graphic needs
⦁ Design considerations specific to the camera
⦁ Design considerations for different entertainment genres
⦁ Physical graphics vs. visual effects
⦁ What are clearances and why do they matter?
⦁ Common and less common methods of graphic production
⦁ Properly setting up files for output
⦁ L.A. entertainment-specific graphics vendors & their capabilities

Class will provide a lively combination of lecture, Q&A and practical exercises. Questions are welcome and encouraged!

Prerequisite: Working knowledge of common design software such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
