Designing Interfaces for Films

This lesson plan covers my entire production workflow and techniques on how to create professional quality interfaces for films.

It spans my process from early ideation through to production and focuses on the concept of storytelling as a major building block.

I'll be showing you how I plan my ideas, sketch and iterate on designs, before building up assets for animation and presentation.

In this course I really wanted to highlight a core facet my process, the principle of story driven design. By focusing on the narrative constraints, it allows the ideas to stay grounded and feel real, even when they are in a fantastic setting. The result is a more well rounded design, that is flexible and allows for continued iteration and expansion.

Throughout the lessons we will mimic a real world scenario, where we receive a brief with existing assets from the art department, and we are tasked with responding to a narrative prompt that fits within a larger story.

I’ll walk you through my fundamental design thinking, my idea generating and blocking approach, and then show you how I use industry standard tools to generate impactful production ready results that help push the story forward.

I hope that this tutorial will give you new insights into the creative process and some new techniques that will improve your own journey in your art and design career.
