BAM Award Winners: Best Art Direction

So, first here come a couple of notes about the history of this category: again this category only started in the middle part of the last decade, as I began to become cognizant of all the facets of filmmaking. I cannot be certain there was an ’03 award as my records from that year have vanished and winners are being recalled. I am pretty confident there was and that in ’05 and ’06 my notes made it such that I couldn’t award a prize.

It will be awarded from here on out as all I have to do is have films to consider as all narrative films do qualify.

Art Direction is vitally important as it is the job of this department to interpret the director’s vision and aside from the camera department has the most control of the mise en scene, aside from the director.
