"This thesis explores the process and obstacles that are necessary to reimagine a classic film such as Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo. The film was selected because of the impecable balance between the ordinary and the seemingly unexplained. The production design works with the challenges in relocating and stylizing an exisiting film from San Franscico to Berlin, both that are rich in history. The sets were designed to advertise the juxtapostion between that of East Berlin and West Berlin and how a womans experiences can influence how she expresses her personal taste and sense of expression."
