Art Department

Our Art Department team works with filmmakers to bring their stories to life.

Art Department at DNEG 

Our Art Department team’s starting point is to develop a deep understanding of the filmmaker’s creative vision. From there, we develop the characters, creatures, environments, props and vehicles that combine to create the world that the story inhabits.


Our design and development work helps filmmakers explore the look of their characters in pre-production – from developing the look of the characters themselves to visualising ideas for costumes, hair, make-up and effects.


From ogres, aliens and nightmarish bears to woodland creatures and cuddly rabbits, our Art Department team will bring your ideas to life, creating creatures that live on in the memory of your audiences for years to come.




The environments in which the story is set, along with colour choices and lighting decisions, all help to establish mood and tone. Our artists are on hand to help create environments that become another character in your story.

Vehicles and props

From industrial design to flights of fancy; from futuristic spaceships to fantasy chariots; from blasters to long-swords – our designers and artists will visualise the vehicles and props that come together to create convincing detail to flesh out the world you are creating.



Our talented Art Department team is headed up by Global Head of Art Ravi Bansal. A world-renowned Art Director, Ravi’s work has helped define the look of recent movies such as ‘The Lion King’ (2019), ‘Aladdin’ (2019), ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’, ‘Pokémon Detective Pikachu’ and ‘Wonder Woman’.
