  1. Wainstein, STAGE DIRECTING A DIRECTOR’S ITINERARY Chapter 8The Visual Collaboration Working with Designers

  2. Realizing the visual concept • Producer hires the director and designers. • Director and designers research • Informal meetings • First design meeting (sometimes by phone) • Work on sketches, drawings, thumbnails • Second design meeting • Refine the plans • Final design meeting – present models

  3. Collaboration

  4. Types of Collaboration • Designer has no ideas • Designer forces their ideas on director • Collaboration

  5. Meeting with designers Build on informal discussions that precede the first design meeting

  6. SOMETIMES, these informal meetings are brainstorming sessions to “get the juices flowing.”

  7. Design Meetings • Informal…meetings in hallway, over coffee, by phone

  8. First Design Meeting • Called by Production Manager or Producer • Director shares concepts • Everyone discusses their working ideas • This is a free exchange of ideas

  9. Words to remember Don’t be afraid to speak up. Once a design is finalized, changes are hard to make.

  10. Second Design meeting Designmers present their sketches. Director and designers agree to revisions and a date is set for a final meeting. HINT: The director should compliment the designers for their work. Be honest. Ask for what you need.
