Art Direction for Iron Man

Check out this interview with Aaron McBride, Industrial Light and Magic (ILM), Art Director for the recently released IronMan movie. ILM is only one of several special effects companies hired to do aspects of the film.

Art Direction is one of several categories of design for films for which people can receive Academy Awards. Art Directors for movies often have a background in design areas like product design or architecture.

If you look at the credits for films today you will see long lists of names of people who are professional designers required to make films today. (Spoiler: Stay to the end of the credits for IronMan for a little treat).
