The Art Director is the professional responsible for the design and creation of the sets for all types of audiovisual productions. To do this, it is essential that they know how to interpret a script or a story in order to design the fictional universe of a film.

The Master’s Degree in Art Direction will train you to develop an artistic proposal from a film script or a novel, going through all its development stages. To do this, we provide you with the necessary tools to carry out the visual narrative of a film, as well as the technical particularities of the art direction profession and its execution.
