The Tree Production Designer, Steven Jones Evans, Shortlisted For Award

September 2nd, 2011

The Tree’s Production Designer, Steven Jones Evans has been nominated for The Docklands Studios Melbourne APDG award for design on a feature film. The nominees shortlist was recently announced by the Australian Production Design Guild who will be holding their inaugrual awards at NIDA on the 21st September.

It was a case of moving the house to fit the tree during preproduction of the film, when, after the production team found the perfect tree. They had to bring in the traditional Queenslander house on the back of a truck, working their magic to create the wonderfully lived in feel of the O’Neill house that we see on screen. And the house is just the beginning. For anyone who has seen the film, the attention to detail helps to bring to life the world and the drama of the story. Steven and his team drained a dam, created a vegetable market garden and more…

You can check out some photographic evidence of Steven’s amazing work below, and watch a video of him and the rest of the crew, speaking about how important it was to find just the right tree.
