The production designer opens the script, reads, and dreams up the most perfect of all possible worlds in which to tell the tale, whether the story is set in the mythic past, the here and now, or any imaginable future. Then the designer must gather and lead the army of artists who, over months or years, in plaster or in pixels, will actually make the design real. Panelists include John Mott (12 Monkeys, The Americans), James Chinland (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Legacy, Avengers), Darren Gilford (Star Wars Epside VII: The Force Awakens, Tron), Ed Verreaux (Jurassic World, Looper), Neil Spisak (Terminator Genisys, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and Gregory Melton (Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Walking Dead). Moderated by John Muto (Species, Home Alone).
