On 19th April, award-winning graphic designer Annie Atkins joins us for an evening lecture on forgery and faking it for the big screen, sharing how her design decisions contribute to the creation of a cohesive visual world on film and television.

Annie has created fake artefacts and props for numerous films, including three Oscar-nominated productions: animated feature The Boxtrolls, Steven Spielberg’s Cold War thriller Bridge of Spies; and Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel — which went on to win the Academy Award for Best Production Design. In this talk, Annie will take us behind the scenes and show us how deception and forgery are what make a film truly great.
