The International Academy of Film and Television Cebu will be having a free workshop that is open to all entitled “The Mystery and Design of the Art Department”. It will take place in the IAFT Cebu campus this coming Saturday, 28th February.

The workshop will focus on dissecting the inner workings of a feature film art department and de-mystifying the names and positions of a credit list. It will cover sub departments, work flow and how it all comes together.

By the end of the workshop, attendees will have a much better grasp of how art direction and design plays into visual arts, commercial and entertainment media.

Emmy award winner and IAFT mentor, Michael David Crenshaw will be the one teaching in the workshop.

He is an Emmy Award winning Production Designer, Fabricator, and Artist who has been pursuing his love of creative story telling for over 20 years.

His film credits include Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones, Bad Summer with Adam Pally and Sarah Burns, McCanick staring David Morris, and both in front of and behind the camera of Yash Raj Film’s New York. In 2010, he won Relativity Media’s Big Break film contest for his designs in Sean Kirkpatrick’s Cost of a Soul.

Crenshaw teaches film producing, career development, film production management, art department integration and production design at IAFT.
