Instructor: Diana Magnus; DGC Member and Art Department Caucus Representative 

Schooled in architecture and art in Paris, London and NYC, Diana Magnus is a detail driven production designer with a passionate eye keyed into the visionary threads of a project.  She has worked with award winning Canadian directors Vincenzo Natali, Jeremy Podeswa, Danishka Esterhazy, and Darlene Naponse and has premiered two feature films at TIFF and VIFF this past year, Falls Around Her and Level 16. She excels at executing a director’s vision through the creation of character worlds and the design of visual themes and motifs that support the story and overall design approach. She has extensive expertise in designing sets across diverse styles, genres and periods, and locations, relishing in the unique opportunity and challenge each project brings.
