Production Design — Texture

The great lost component of film is texture—of cloth, steel, plastic, wood, rock etc.

Texture, as much as color, can be an invaluable asset in establishing differences and delineating important character and set boundaries.

Because film is visual, little consideration is given to touch:  this is a mistake. Your personal memory of the texture of objects is accessible by seeing that object, by visual cues. Use this relation in your film—add that extra dimension.

Texture as much as lighting can connect or separate.

Use accordingly.
