I am production designer and art director from Prague, Czech Republic. I have a long artistic background since I have been studying in both Stage Design for Theatre and Film Production Design departments at Academy of Performing Arts for last 6 years. I am mainly working as a freelance production designer in commercials and art director for Czech feature and TV movies. In addition, I work in theatres around Europe as a stage, costume and graphic designer.
I started this project as a part of my professional career as a production designer, because I would like to share my thoughts, hints and comments on cinematography, but mainly, because I felt there is a lack of knowledge from audience about what production designers do and do they bring to the movies. I also wanted to create hub, where people interested in production design and art direction for movies can find backstage and making of informations, designs, sketches and documentaries about their favourite movies.
Because big part of our work is also about gathering informations and doing deep research about different topics, I would also like to review different books relevant to our tasks.
