Thomas Drotarís design career started back in the early 90ís when he began working as a prop master for director Michael Bay. Moving up to his true calling, he began production designing for many of the countryís top directors and he has never looked back. Word of mouth spread and he stayed busy working the next few years with many ďAĒ list directors such as Steve Chase, Gordon Willis Jr.,Elyse Lewin, Frank Tammariello, Peter Bonerz, Randy Spear, & Herb Ritts to name a few. At that point Thomas decided to return to college. Augmenting his BA in art history from the University of Michigan he enrolled in classes at The Art Center and UCLA with classes in illustration, perspective, and color.
Drotarís work has encompassed all styles from the huge budget world of sport celebrities and movie star commercials to small intimate spots, offering in both cases his keen and elegant sense of design and style. He has a photographic memory for anything visual - which he freely draws from while designing. Be it from obscure British gangster films, French new wave, or futuristic pieces, youíll find he is never short of ideas.
Always moving and striving to improve, Drotarís passion as a designer is evident in every aspect of his work. Be it preliminary illustrations for furniture or set pieces, color palettes or an entire 4 wall set, you will find his approach to production design to be thorough and precise. Understanding the need for teamwork, Thomas has assembled an exceptionally talented art department crew that has been with him for over ten years.
Drotar also specializes in the world of computer graphics and electronic design. He is well known for his movie titles, high end web sites, movie posters and print layouts.
