Ever wonder who sets the background for the Oscars? How a play gets set up or even the background for a movie shot on location? It's the job of a set designer. This is the person who oversees the construction and decoration of sets. Designers frequently rent props and look through catalogs or visit warehouses where props are stored. Sometimes designers draw pictures of props may even build them. Once the sets are built, designers arrange the placement of items. They may also suggest the best place to shoot scenes outside or how to alter the natural environment to make sure the set meets their clients' requirements.
