Episode 89 - GUY HENDRIX DYAS - Production Designer (2 replies)
Team Deakins sits down with production designer, Guy Hendrix Dyas. We cover many subjects, including the importance of drawing and illustrating for Production Designers, the need for learning the director’s visual language, forming a relationship with a new director, and the sadness he feels at the end of each project. Guy shares his experiences of working with Terry Gilliam, Shekhar Kapur, and Chris Nolan. He breaks down the set in Inception that was in the snow and the challenges that it brought and talks about the Japanese influence on the design of Inception. We also get into the design of the films Agora and Elizabeth: The Golden Years. A very interesting looking into the world of the Production Designer!

I just wanted to say that I didn't expect that I would relate to Guy so much in terms of emotional involvement in the work. It's something I've been struggling with (highs of working on something I like and lows when it ends), and it was nice to hear someone speak about it in the way Guy did. On top of everything else he spoke about. Thank you!
Love the story about the ice foundation in Inception. Great podcast, again thank you for doing these, I could listen for hours!
