How complex should my design be?
As simple as possible to get the point and message across immediately. Think of a billboard that you drive past at 70 miles and hour. What do you retain and what is omitted in your blink-of-an-eye reflection. What feeling does it leave behind?
How do you create new worlds out of our own real world with photo-retouching?
Using multi-dimensional thinking as the basis of all entertainment foundations. That is the essence of the theme. Spend a large amount of time research and development, so the new world is as true as the"real" one. Now we must block out area in Photoshop in layers to disassemble and re-assemble the world in correct proportions.

How do you know what kind of character or camera angle you need for a particular film?
You must understand different target audiences, and how to get the message across to all platforms through intensive research… and simply getting into their shoes. Employ all the senses into play for emotive memory recall to evoke an emotion to the audience. I think about how shape and color can trigger smell, temperature, cultural significance, and mood.
