Two-Day Workshop With Doug Chiang

Last September, the aspiring designers in Malaysia were in good fortune to sit in with Doug Chiang, the renowned Oscar-winning production design master who was giving two-day workshops in The One Academy. The event has gained good responses from the fellow design students as well as working professionals, all wanting to be a member of Doug Chiang’s art department although it was only for two days.


The Force is strong with this one.

Doug Chiang’s Seminar Begins Here!

“Be An Excellent Production Designer” Seminar conducted by Doug Chiang was co-organized by MDeC, The One Academy together with Studio Climb and S.T.A.G.E. Dedicated for art and design students as well as production design industry professionals, it was initiated on September 5th, 2011 at Auditorium Level 1, Technology Park Malaysia (TPM).


Doug’s sharing was highly inspiring for the audience.

After 6 months of planning, Doug Chiang was finally arriving to KLIA from San Francisco to conduct his debut seminar and workshops. We almost shared the same kind of nervousness as Spencer when we were counting down the days before Doug’s arrival. Despite that feeling, we were all ready to bring the best to the audience.

To spice up the event, S.T.A.G.E as a co-organizer curated a mini exhibition to showcase a range of artworks before the seminar hall entrance. It has featured over 50 pieces of artworks associated with Studio Climb’s projects including storyboards, color scripts, character designs and concept art etc. In the hope of cultivating new talents in the realm of animation pre-production design, S.T.A.G.E’s November intake is now opened for registration.
