One of the most prolific Production Designers in the film industry, Jane Musky began her career designing in the New York theatre. After a fateful meeting with Joel and Ethan Coen her professional career took a major shift away from theatre and she designed her first feature, BLOOD SIMPLE.
Jane Musky’s body of film and television work encompasses many styles and periods with over 40 years and 40 films completed along with a very robust presence in the television and commercial industry.
She has had rich collaborations with directors: Alan Pakula, Rob Reiner, Gus Van Sant, Mike Newell, Peter Bogdanovich, Francois Girard, Joel and Ethan Coen, Michael Mayer, Diane English, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Ivan Reitman, George Tillman, Andy Tennant, Jerry Zucker, James Foley, Janusz Kaminski, Paul Schrader, Nick Hytner, Zack Braff, Peter Horton, Claire Scanlon, Lorene Scafaria, and Tim Federle.
Jane believes a Production Designer must put story and character first-expressing each character’s emotional life through their personal environments, creating richly textured visual style for a film as a whole.
