FilmCraft: Production Design: FilmCraft Series #5

A new book on production FilmCraft: Production Design: FilmCraft Ser… by Fionnuala Halligan is now available for pre-order on Amazon.

Given the scarcity of books on this subject, this one will be a welcome addition to the library. The last book to feature a collection of production designers went out of print a number of years ago and now sells for inflated sums in the second hand market.

Designing 007 – Fifty years of Bond Style

I have been lucky enough to design some grand architectural spaces for TV over the past few years, but I doubt that any will ever feel as cool as I imagine designing sets for a Bond movie would. To celebrate fifty years since the release of Dr No, the first of the Bond films, The Barbican is staging an exhibition of the designs behind the franchise.

Update: Just found a little more info on this exhibition over on the BBC website: Designing 007
