Job Description for Set Designer

Set designers are vital to almost all entertainment productions. Their job is to make a scene come to life, from the beautiful landscapes of outdoor scenes to the furniture and lighting of indoor scenes. They must read and analyze scripts, story lines, and other materials relevant to their production to define the style and surroundings of the scenes. They are often required to source items from a particular place or era of production, such as antique items for a production which takes place in the early 20th century. This can mean many hours at yard sales, thrift stores, or online auctions, and close attention to detail and great imagination are essential for the position.
