Background Info On The 2020 ADG Award Nominees

When the Art Directors Guild announced its nominations for their 24th Annual Excellence In Production Design Awards, we were thrilled that our Rosco Digital Imaging team had been a part of so many of the nominated projects. Scan the list below to see the Production Design teams that Rosco supported with either Rental Backdrops, or tailor-made Custom Backdrops along with many hours of consultation and modifications. If you click on the title of each production, you can explore its design presentation on the ADG Awards website, and if you click the associated image you can view a larger version of the file that we used to create one of the Rosco Backdrops provided.
