The depth and breadth of research amassed by our Director Gary McKendry prior to official Pre Production provided a solid springboard to begin the Production Design journey for the film.
A highlight of the Design process was familiarising oneself with the environments for the Oman component.
Delicate and sublime detailing needed to be created on stage for the Sheikh’s Palace interior.
The skill and craftsmanship of the Art, Construction and Scenic team unquestionably enhanced the authenticity of these Arabic environments.
A special nod to Scenic artist extraordinaire Ian Richter who spent many days and nights meticulously hand painting the authentic and picturesque map of Oman as seen in this image.
