The first time I’d ever heard about Production Designer Ian Brock was several months ago when I was having dinner with a fellow producer. We were discussing production challenges and the benefits of hiring talented people capable of making efficient use of often limited resources when my dining companion suddenly sat back and informed me: “Ian Brock! He’s a genius!”.
Genius? “That’s a mighty big word,”I remember thinking. According to my associate, he was not only incredibly good at production design, he was incredibly good at production design without going over budget. “But GENIUS?”I asked.
“His work,”I was assured, “is efficient but visually stunning.”
And that’s something I can now personally attest to. With the help of his Art Department team and the construction department, Ian’s vision for our ship, The Raza, is rapidly taking shape. And it’s looking mighty awesome…
