BAFTA Scotland: Career Close-Up: Production Design with Stephen Bryce

Date: Thursday, 1 December 2016 – 6:30pm

Venue: CCA, Cinema, 350 Sauchiehall St, Glasgow. G2 3JD

From sourcing credible props for a period drama to designing the artwork and branding for a gameshow, production designers have the responsibility of bestowing each set they work on with a sense of authenticity.

Across his long and varied career, Stephen Bryce has worked on an array of structured reality shows such as The Apprentice, Hunted, Back in Time for Dinner and Child Genius.  Stephen was also part of the team which won a BAFTA Craft Award for Derren Brown’s Apocalypse in 2013.

If you have a passion for all things visual, as well as a great imagination and the ability to conceptualise ideas easily, apply for our production designer Career Close-Up session today.

This event is part of the Career Close-Up programme supported by Skills Development Scotland.

This initiative specifically supports career starters who have graduated from college/university who are still looking for a break in the industry.  Sessions are open to a maximum of 20 participants, full eligibility guidelines and application forms can be found here.

Artist call out with Atlantic Quay- wall artwork

altantic1altantic

Atlantic Quay is a business community situated by the waterfront in Glasgow’s International Financial Services District. AQ comprises three buildings with underground connectives, these interlink the quay development and form the foundation of Glasgow’s financial district.

The Clyde waterfront has largely been forgotten in Glasgow and AQ aims to turn attention back to the riverside, to make the most of the buildings’ outlook onto the Clyde, and to reflect the spirit of the Clyde back into the work spaces. The ability to walk, run and cycle to work and relax by the riverside are of real benefit to tenants and AQ’s on-site open space allows breathing room that is such a rare benefit in the city centre.

AQ is taking the buildings identity in a Nordic direction – simple, functional and minimal with our branding and colour palette inspired by Nordic aesthetics – clean lines, citrine yellow for the low sun and greys and blues to reflect the waterways. Inside, we plan crisp contemporary Scandinavian interiors to be enhanced by artwork of the same theme. In summary the underlying message in our branding, and in our musical note, is “Stay here with us.”

While being crisp, contemporary and professional we dislike predictability – think more edgy than the norm, more friendly, more forward thinking. We aren’t particularly corporate as operators and want to provide a creative, inspiring workspace for tenants to reflect this.

Opportunity

AQ is seeking an artist to create a piece of wall art within Atlantic Quay 1. The piece must be painted directly onto the wall. The area is a main route for those working at AQ to get to and from their place of work, and the aim is to enhance the area and make the environment more pleasant for those using it.

The wall area is approximately 13.5 metres in length.

The fee for this project is £300.

AQ will cover the cost of materials.

To be considered for this opportunity, please submit a proposal. Include your ideas in writing along with visuals. Please provide samples of any previous work you feel has relevance to this project.

Please email your proposal to mailto:Lisa@atlanticquay.com.

Benefits

Creation of the artwork also includes the following benefits:

  • The artist will have access to press coverage through our PR consultants with the intention of gaining exposure in various national and local publications.
  • The piece will feature on our website, magazine, brochures and other literature.
