"Shōgun" Production Designer  - Helen Jarvis
Apr 24 2024
"Shōgun" Production Designer - Helen Jarvis
On this episode I speak with Production Designer Helen Jarvis about the amazing limited series Shögun. The series is a massive undertaking with intense research, diving into historical texts, paintings, and archival material. She discusses that the goal is to not just recreate 17th-century Japan in the “Shoin-Zukuri” style but also make it visually compelling for a modern audience. Filmed on location in Vancouver, Shögun enlisted expert consultants from Japan to work with the Canadian crew in what became a seamless collaboration between Eastern and Western talents in service of telling a truly authentic Japanese story. Committed to being authentic to the era, the sets, locations, décor, props and construction builds for Shögun were designed to make the viewer - and cast - believe they stepped into 1600 feudal Japan. Helen describes how the sets were spread across two expansive exterior backlots, a remote mountainside location and two massive sound stages, which housed all the interiors of Osaka Castle, gardens, a Catholic mission and parts of the imposing ship the Erasmus. This series is a gorgeous design accomplishment and all episodes are now streaming on Hulu. Are you a fan of TV and film production?

To create the epic scale of the movie, Production Designer Arthur Max, a three-time Oscar® nominee (“Gladiator”, “American Gangster” and “The Martian”) who has collaborated with Scott on 15 films since 1997’s “G. I. Jane”, has seen the business of production design change immensely over the decades. “We have always built giant sets, but now, we use the spaces in different ways,” he explains. “When we made “Gladiator”, CGI was in its nascence. We were limited as to what we could achieve. Now, the scope of our ambitions has grown with it. But we're still in the school of thought that it's best to have a physical set to build off of, not just a complete CGI universe.” Set Decorator Elli Griff joined Max on “Gladiator” in Morocco, followed by “Black Hawk Down” and then “Man on Fire” for the late Tony Scott. More recently, Griff has worked on “Glass Onion”, which brought her an ADG Award, and they are both currently finishing up “Gladiator 2”. On the podcast we explore the intricate process of “Napoleon” design from color pallet to the Set Decor of elaborate tents and beds! Are you a fan of TV and film production?
