Prior to Stargate SG-1 I had worked with Production Designer Richard Hudolin on productions in Toronto, Montreal, and Calgary. When I moved to Vancouver in 1996 we started a collaboration that continues to this day. We’ve worked with a strong team of people in Art Departments varying in size from 3 to 13; on projects with budgets ranging from tens of thousands to millions of dollars. Design is collaboration. When it works at its best everyone in the chain makes a contribution and the end result far exceeds the sum of the parts.
