Production Design — Density

Density refers to populating your set design with lots of stuff. Give the audience something to sort through, but don’t distract them.  And give your lighting some things to bounce off, and from which they may diffuse.

Films that fail to create visual density always end up looking like cheap television shows.

More is better.

Except when less is more.

When in doubt, check the script.
