AKA PD. This is one of the key creative roles in a film. You’ll see this high up in the credits in the same group as the director of photography and editor. This person is an artist who is responsible for designing the overall appearance of a film. They work closely with the director and producer to establish what the setting and environment of every scene looks like. Basically everything you see on the screen that is not living (furniture, vegetiation, wall color, cars etc) is designed and created by the PD and his/her team. This, however, does not include wardrobe and hair.
