Production Design for a Short Film based on ‘Einstein’s Dreams’

For this 8 week individual project we were given the novel Einstein’s Dreams by Alan Lightman as a starting point but were allowed the freedom to take the project in any direction best suited to us. I am interested in production design for film and this was the first opportunity I had to pursue that interest, so I designed 3 sets for a short film based on one particular chapter. Following the industry standard I made 1:50 scale white card models with technical drawings and an accompanying code book.
