Before an actor steps on a film set or an animator draws a character, visual development artists set the stage by envisioning scenes and establishing the “look” of the production.

Visual Development artists communicate narrative, thematic and functional design ideas using visual media. Visual Development is key to envisioning complex scenes before the actor steps onto the set, or before characters become animated on film or in game play. They are the visual storytellers who design and stage scenes from a script with effective camera choices that enhance the development and mood of the story.
