Gabe Robertson

2019 QEST Scholar - Production Design for Film
East Sussex

The National Film and Television School has developed some of the world’s top creative talent in film and moving image.  Gabe is one of only eight students to be accepted each year onto the MA in Production Design.

QEST is contributing to his fees for this course, taught by industry professionals, on which working methods replicate professional practice.  They use built sets and green screen to create real and imagined worlds: the design studio is fully equipped for the production of live shoots and computer techniques are taught alongside traditional skills such as set sketching, orthographic draughting and model making with carpenters, painters and sculptors.

Craft and design go hand in hand for production designers. I hope to use the skills I am honing now to create exciting work of great quality to become an art director in television and film within a decade.
