Course DescriptionThis course explores the use of interior design in cinema. The course is structured around watching five films that demonstrate various interior design principles such as how eliminating color helps you focus on composition elements; how an interior can serve as a portrait of the inhabitant; how lighting and shadow can be used as prominently as furniture in an interior; how interior design can be used and changed as a piece of fashion; how natural light sources differ dramatically from artificial light; and how certain styles can be abused to look visually dramatic but be uncomfortable or unusable. The course will examine styles ranging from Neo-Classical to Mid-Century Modern. The course is also useful for students of cinema as studies in outstanding production and set design in film.
