Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Born and raised in England, production designer Brian Morris has demonstrated a versatility, moving easily from stylized musicals to period films to more contemporary fare. He began his career with the Royal Shakespeare Company before moving to film and TV. His earliest feature credits include the art direction on two Richard Loncraine films, "Flame" (1974) and "Full Circle" (1977). He graduated to full-fledged production designer with John Schlesinger's World War II-era drama "Yanks" (1979). After creating the pre-historic world of Jean-Jacques Annaud's "Quest for Fire" (1981), Morris began a long-term association with Alan Parker with his striking design for the rock'n'roll musical "Pink Floyd The Wall" (1982). Among his other more notable credits are the 30s-era "Another Country" (1984), with its pastoral views of British private schools, Parker's "Angel Heart" (1987), which created an ominous contemporary New Orleans and Adrian Lyne's "Jacob's Ladder" (1990), in which the designer created a nightmare world.Alternating between detailed period pieces ("Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights" 1992; "The Road to Wellville" 1994) and contemporary dramas and comedies ("Damage" 1992; "Sabrina" 1995), Morris...

Alternating between detailed period pieces ("Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights" 1992; "The Road to Wellville" 1994) and contemporary dramas and comedies ("Damage" 1992; "Sabrina" 1995), Morris has gained respectful reviews and a reputation as one of the cinema's more premiere designers. He earned an Oscar nomination for Parker's "Evita" (1996), in which he recreated Peronist Argentina on location in Buenos Aires and Budapest, Hungary.
