The Art Department

The Art Department: The shitload of work that’s done before you start creating games, commercials, features and animation. A lot happens before a film is taken into production. For Playgrounds 2017: The Art Department we wanted to focus on everything created before it goes into production. And we had a blast! Pictures can be found here.

5 October 2017 - 6 October 2017 (Event has ended)

For two days we immersed ourselves into The Art Department. A trip into the magic of visual storytelling. Character design, concept art, background visuals, character building, robotics, props, set dressing: every single detail a crew has to think of and decide upon before they can get start actually making the film.

The Art Department was co-curated by professionals in the industry. Amongst others Jort van Welbergen, Wouter Tulp and Leon Tukker.

In 2018 we’re back with the second edition of The Art Department, join us!
