The Art of The Hollywood Backdrop

By Karen L. Maness, Richard M. Isackes

Regan Arts

Despite the continued use of hand-painted backings in today’s films, including the big-budget Interstellar and Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events among many others, digital technology is beginning to supplant the art form.

In an effort to preserve the irreplaceable knowledge of scenic masters, Karen Maness and Richard Isackes, in collaboration with the Art Directors Guild, have compiled a definitive history of the craft in The Art of The Hollywood Backdrop.
