A few things I enjoy doing as an Art Director:
I enjoy supporting and following through with the visual concepts specified by the Production Designer and the Director. I enjoy working with film construction crews: the Construction Coordinator, Foreman, Painters, Plasters, Greens people, Sign Painters, Metal Shop workers, Staff Shop workers, Mechanical Effects builders, and Grips. I acquire common and unusual materials for projects and research period and contemporary design elements. Coming from a Coordinating background, I assist with the scheduling and the tracking of art budgets (purchase orders, petty cash, and payroll). I liaison between the Art Department and the Production team. I also liaison between the Production Designer and the Art team: the Decorator, Set Designers, Illustrators, Graphic Artists, Model Makers, Location Managers, Prop Masters, Special Effects Coordinators, Picture Vehicle Coordinators, and various Printing vendors.
Every project is unique and I just love that!
