Art Department Work Experience: The Real Inside Story

Now online is The Still Life Experience – here you’ll find posted weekly a very unusual diary of life in the Art Department on my current project ‘Still Life’.  But unlike Chic Fun Gory Silly this is written entirely by the work experience volunteers we have each week – the job, unedited, through their eyes.  It is an account of what they do and what they learn, intended as a way to share the realities of a first time working experience for other students and graduates.  It is also a way to help me and other designers make sure placements are providing an honest real-world insight and the right education of set design.  For all those thinking about careers in film & TV Production Design, I hope this inspires you and prepares you for your first steps in the industry.

It all starts in the final weeks of prep, just before tech recces begin…
