Production Design Podcasts



Podcasts have become essential listening over the past decade, and have expanded to include many diverse subjects and panelists. In this post we list some of our favorite podcasts involving design and film-related conversations.


We've included two sections here: one for podcasts centered around film design craft and one for general film podcasts that have episodes we think will be relevant to our members. Enjoy!

PRODUCTION DESIGN DIGEST

Production Design Digest is hosted by Kelly Sinclair, and is one of the few podcasts solely dedicated to conversations with production designers. So far, she’s interviewed Anna Rhodes, Dick Lunn, Kem White, and Jade Healy. Each discussion is filled with first-hand insights on topics such as model making, designing with aspect ratio in mind, getting started in the industry, and designing for the character.








THE FILM DESIGN PODCAST

The Film Design Podcast is created by production designer Max Lincoln. He sits down with folks across the art department—production designers, art directors, set decorators, buyers, and prop masters—as they engage in discussions about topics including working with a minimal budget, adjusting personal style for commercial work, and getting started with no experience.









ART OF THE SHOT

Art of the Shot by Derek Stettler brings together two department heads (often a production designer and a cinematographer) to discuss their forthcoming releases. The dialogue between department heads sheds light on what collaboration looks like between departments, and how team members work together to conceptualize the look and feel of the project.











BURNING SOFA

Burning Sofa explores the work of both production designers and set decorators, with interviews featuring craftspeople in both roles. The podcast seeks to demystify the film design process, as they go in-depth with designers on their projects, process, and career paths.
