Everything you wanted to know about...the roles in the art department

Course type

Short Course


0.5 days

This live stream session will look at the different roles within the art department.

There are so many questions when you are trying to break into the industry, move into a new department or move up a grade. It’s not always possible to ask these when you’re working or reach the most experienced practitioners as they are often too busy. So we are using downtime to create this opportunity!

Talking Point Live Stream Conversations will give participants an opportunity to hear from the most established film professionals and ask their questions in a safe and informal space. These free sessions are supported by ScreenSkills using National Lottery funds awarded by the BFI as part of the Future Film Skills programme

Course content

This livestream session will provide advice and guidance on the following:

  • The different roles within the art department
  • How the art department teams collaborate effectively to create an aesthetic
  • How to access art department roles on mid- large scale productions
  • How to succeed and be effective in these roles
