Mumbai, April 12 (IANS) An art director gives life to what a director visualises, says National Award winning filmmaker Omung Kumar, who has extensively worked behind the scenes to create sets for films and live events.
Kumar addressed college students here for TED Talks, where he spoke on ‘Imagination is Tangible’. He shared his thoughts on how to use imagination and turn it into a reality in front of an audience as well as the cameras, a statement said.
“In a film, it is an art director’s role to truly give life to a world, which a director is visualising. So as an art director, my imagination is my toolkit,” said Kumar.
“I work with my imagination to make and create a unique world, which makes my story better. The art director has the potential to create, destroy and change the world one lives in,” said Kumar,” he added.
As an art director, Omung has worked on films like “Chameli”, “Jhankaar Beats” and “Black”.
