Visiting Artist Movie Designer

Visiting Artist Movie Designer

The designer and illustrator for hits such as The MatrixPirates of the Caribbean and Beauty and the Beast will share original pitch board drawings in a public lecture at Kapiʻolani Community College on Monday, November 18, 7–9 p.m in Kopiko 202A.

Darek Gogol, who has worked on the visual development of more than 40 Hollywood movies, will discuss how illustrations ignite the creative process and will show how concept ideas are shaped into camera-ready form.

“So many times, directors have said to me, ‘Show me a world that’s never been seen before,’” Gogol said. “Digital tools have opened up new frontiers for concept artists, but the challenge remains the same: to conjure up a world that is visually astonishing.”
