June 10, 2021: Yesterday, showrunner Scott Frank and production designer and ifs professor Uli Hanisch gave us a great insight into their successful collaboration – in an »ifs Encounter« online about the Netflix series »The Queen’s Gambit«. In the talk with moderator Elina Gakou-Gomba (series writer and ifs alumna), one of the topics was the importance of the production design for the authentic characterization of the main character Beth – and how successful cooperation between the trades contributes to this.
Filmmakers and series fans from all over the world took part in the lively talk – from France, Spain, the Netherlands, the USA and Lebanon, among others. Thank you for your great interest – and especially a heartfelt thank you to our wonderful guests Uli Hanisch and Scott Frank, who took the time in the middle of their current filming.
A recording of the event is here available.
