Contemporary Set Design with James Clyne
Conceptual Environments for Feature Film Production
In this third of three titles in a series, James will cover a wide range of Adobe Photoshop® techniques that he uses as a concept designer in the feature film industry. Focusing on the subject of a contemporary loft interior as a film set, James acts as a location manager, production designer and illustrator to visually explain a common feature film art department pipeline technique. Setting itself apart from other concept art techniques, this lecture concentrates heavily on the smooth integration of photo reference and high-end conceptualization ideas, or what James terms "Photoshop® kit bashing", blurring the line between photo and ideation rendering. Subjects such as using photo scrap as virtual set pieces, texture mapping in 2D, and rendering a wide range of materials from brushed steel to polished hardwood floor are also covered.
