Set designer can create tension and arouse emotions

Allan Starski is Polish Academy awarded (Schindler’s list) production designer and set decorator with career marked by many collaborations with worldwide known directors such as Steven Spielberg, Agnieszka Holland, Roman Polanski and many others.

Because cinema is a fairy tale, in which the viewer wants to believe, and the designer has to help him."
