Structure of the Production Design Academy for Props
The Production Design Academy for Props is a unique training programme focusing on the key craft and design skills involved in the art department of film and television production. This Academy will be based in the Nerve Centre Derry/ Londonderry. You will be introduced specifically to the key role of Props Master and be able to work alongside the other academies in production design, costume design, hair and make-up and learn how these diverse job roles are performed on a production.
What does it mean to work in a Props Master role? The Props Master works with production designers, set decorators and art directors to work out what props are needed. They then decide which props are to be hired or made. You will have the opportunity to work with a variety of different materials and work towards crafting different props needed for a Sci-fi Film. You will also have the opportunity to work closely with the production designer and other departments, developing the overall look for this production.
Due to the nature of this academy the majority of the sessions will be in person in order to prepare for the shoot. Specific dates are to be decided and will depend on Covid restrictions.
