Hennah on Vincent and Bright for ‘The Hobbit’

Eye on the Oscars 2013: Art Direction

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”
Production designer Dan Hennah on set decorators Ra Vincent and Simon Bright

“My role was liaising with our director and concept artists and evaluating what we could best design, while giving visual effects clean lines for set extensions. Simon, with his on-set background and knowledge of construction, provided and decorated environments that would work for the shoot and stand up to the abuses of a 200-strong crew. Ra, with his background in sculpture and fine art, was invaluable in the innovative use of material and fabrics and application of our color palettes. As we built and dressed 103 sets, we told the story through art and architecture.”
