The Influence of Graphic Design and Fine Art in Film is a exploration into the impact that an investment of the arts has on film and more specifically the independent film market. Most independent filmmakers have to develop their productions with little to no budget. In doing so they must work to create a marketable film to the best of their ability. There in-lies the issue; they are doing it to the best of “their” ability. The issue that is in focus with the notion of ability is that a major component that is left out of the equation to produce a successful film is the much needed (and much rewarded) investment in the arts. By utilizing such things as concept art, storyboard, image boards, computer graphics and design, you will garner a stronger and more efficient production than that in which get your the closest to your desired results and success.
