Plymouth College of Art
Film and Screen Arts
Hi I’m Hazel! I do art direction, production design and other art department roles. My work is where the narrative and visual mediums meet; art directors oversee the artistic aspects of a film, they bring clarity and definition to convey a message or mood to the audience, art direction is about evoking a specific emotion to create a connection between what you see on screen and what you experience. Production design is the technical execution of that connection; the production designer's main responsibility being the design of sets, to create and organise the physical world where the story takes place. In my work I've always had a strong interest in fashion and makeup, as a way to express myself; which has led to developing a wide sense of different aesthetics and styles. I have a passion for experimental art and fashion film and media and I can see myself with a career in this space. But fiction has always been a favourite of mine, specifically sci-fi and horror and I’ve enjoyed working in these areas not limited to art direction but special effects as well.
