Jacinta Leong – Production Designer interview

Production Designer Jacinta Leong explains her timelapse videos from major blockbusters Alien: Covenant and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

With decades of experience as an art director and production designer in film and television, Jacinta Leong has always been fascinated with design and architecture.

As part of her work in the art department, Leong took progress stills as the sets came to life and began creating timelapse videos to share the process.

“I started a bit of a timelapse bug in the 90s… it’s a good, succinct way of saying, ‘This is what we [art department] do.’”

In this video interview, Leong talks to Screen Australia journalist Caris Bizzaca about her timelapse videos for two specific projects – Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Alien: Covenant.

You can listen to Leong talk more about some of the roles in the art department, advice for getting into the industry, career highlights and more on the Screen Australia podcast here.
