Entertainment design is an essential part of the pre-production process for media development, and the worlds, characters and creatures created during this phase inform the final look and feel of the production. “Though concept art is well known amongst gamers and avid film fans, it’s a largely unknown field to the majority of South Africans. We believe that our country is capable of producing some of the finest digital artists in the world, and our goal is to train those individuals in order to grow the South African entertainment design industry.” says Scott Harris, Art Director at DAS. Together with co-art directors Matthew Vice, Conceptual Art, Kyle Brand, Industrial Design, and Ezelle Van Der Heever, Character Design, DAS endeavors to cultivate a new generation of highly skilled conceptual artists.
