...Ulrich Seidl. He is, at this time, one of my inspirations of directors I would love to work with.

The award-winning design of the Mad Max sequel, Fury Road, would be my perfect redesign project.
I have a dream to be a production designer in a cartoon - to create the characters, interiors, exteriors.
The design becomes another character in the film, in a way.
I think my biggest accomplishments are surviving the hardest projects and making new close friends out of them.
(Production designer should) have the ability to gain trust from the director, producer and photographer and the art department.
I would love to work on movie that spans whole XX century and movies that represent past century.
What thrills me the most is knowing that generating a pervasive mood that seems to organically exist, depends on a great Art Department.
Firstly I just live, dream and breathe cinema and absolutely love narrative, character, and aesthetics.
I love concept art and i follow the big stars of concept art scene every day on social networks
A production designer should be able to draw as far as to communicate an image.
I want the director to know the possibilities of showing amazing things with various methods.

The visualization of historical events is like making the time machine.
My biggest inspirations are the paintings; I am often fascinated how artists manage to create an atmosphere and mood in a still picture.
AUTHORS OF SELECTED PROJECTS
I like confronting my ideas with the imagination of the designer.
Scriptwriter / Actress
We would like them to understand the message of our story and help us develop the design that would support the feelings and isolation our characters feel.
I would like the production designer to be a partner in the brainstorming already in the development period, to set the basis for elements to be explored at a later stage in production.
Once the production designer reads our script, I hope we can work together on developing a vision of a world in which both our characters and the story as a whole will fit perfectly.
Scriptwriter / Director
Ideal level of production designer's involvement with my work is when I can share my vision with him/her and expect a creative brainstorming over ideas and concepts which will lead in to something better.
Scriptwriter / Director
I would like to work with the production designer in the same way as with the DOP and the costume designer - they all should deeply understand what the story is really about and together we should come up with a visual code that would express the theme and the hidden meaning of the film.
