Hannah Beachler, Jenn Nkiru, and Kwasi Fordjour

Film Roundtable

In this roundtable we are joined by Production Designer Hannah Beachler, Artist and Filmmaker Jenn Nkiru, and Director/Creative Director Kwasi Fordjour. The conversation opens with a discussion on unexpected sources of inspiration and creativity in the past year (including the sun!) as well as the spirit of continuation and exploration through one’s connection and responsibility to self. The group also delves into the act of deciding and accepting as creators, the importance of listening and finding answers within oneself through stillness, and the intentional act of creating space for one’s wonderment, which is discussed as a path for circumventing the indoctrinated societal machine of constant production. They close by emphasizing the vitality of assessing our emotional state, revitalizing so we can connect visually, and finding ways to traverse a fast-paced world while making time for joy.At the core of the conversation is the act of prioritizing curiosity, allowing for intuition to be instinct, and the importance of acknowledging the connectivity of our actions.

Episode 14 - Production Designer Hannah Beachler

The AAFCA Podcast

If you didn’t know, every lamp, curtain, wall color, car, and fixture is selected by the production designer and team. It can be as small as finding the right rural home in the case of Dark Waters, or building a fictional country and every single element within it in films like Black Panther. Every visual in this exercise was created by production designer Hannah Beachler. Beachler has been building worlds like this for over a decade with movies like Creed, Moonlight, Black Panther, Beyonce’s Lemonade, and her latest film Dark Waters to her credit.  Now to get an understanding the anatomy of her process and design principles I had a conversation with Hannah via Skype for this informative masterclass about her creative process and inspirations.
