Set decoration

Set decorating is my favorite art department role because of how much character analysis goes into it. In movies we learn about characters through what they say and do. As a decorator, I believe spaces do this as well. The state of the kitchen sink is the difference between a slob and a neat freak. One casually-placed ash tray can turn a character into a smoker. It’s not enough to just fill a space… it’s to hand-select each and every item for the purpose of better storytelling.
