Seminar: Hunting the Authenticity

A 2-day Nordic seminar on production design, Saturday April 21. & Sunday 22.

We have the pleasure of having four international recognized production designers to share their profession, reflection, knowledge, experience and art.

How to create universes where the audience feel like being in, or at least a part of, the environment.

It’s about visual style, space and storytelling.

About space in interaction with characters and the characters behavior toward the space.

All this also lead us to talk about research.

A great skill for research is a must to create authentic work.


The seminar is aimed for production designers, directors, cinematographers, producers and other interested professionals and will be held in English.

The seminar takes place on the National Film School of Denmark, Theodor Christensens Plads 1, 1437 Copenhagen K.

Saturday April 22. & Sunday 22. from 10.00 – 17.00.

Participant fee is Dkr. 1.195,- incl. coffee/tee/water and lunch both days, and invitation for a light dinner Saturday evening.
