Set design is the silent partner of the whole filmmaking process, it’s there, it provides the world in wich the characters live, sometimes it turns the unbelievable into reality, yet it’s voice is only heard as an afterthought imprinted forever in our minds.
Stylish, minimal, futuristic or plain functional, a movie set can become the extension of a character and the focus point of a world created from scratch.
