Ina Mayhew

When it comes to movies and TV, you always hear about the lead actors, sometimes the director and the producer, maybe the writer, and very occasionally the cinematographer. But the unsung star is often the production designer. The person who gives each scene it’s look and feel. Ina Mayhew has worked with a lot of marquee names over the years: Spike Lee, Jay Z, and Tyler Perry to name just a few. Her latest project is Heartstrings, a series on Netflix wherein each epsode brings to life a song by Dolly Parton, with different sets for every episode.

Debbie talks to Ina about her career designing for movies and tv shows, and about how the virus may change the very nature of her profession. “Am I going to be needed in the same way as a production designer? What is my role going to be?”
