There are many unsung heroes in the movie business that most of the general public doesn’t acknowledge. In an action/thriller film like Lionsgate’s Survive the Game, it’s easy just to focus on the action and the stars that the film offers. Especially with names like Bruce Willis starring in the film.
One of those jobs is that of a production designer. This is the person that is in charge of the look of the film. Working closely with the director they make sure that the locations and the sense of time period are correct. They usually have a lot of logistics to worry about including schedules, budgets, and staffing. These folks are part of the movie magic!

Here is the synopsis for Lionsgate’s Survive the Game
Bruce Willis (Pulp Fiction) and Chad Michael Murray (“Riverdale”) star in this explosive crime-thriller. When cop David (Willis) is injured in a drug bust gone wrong, his partner, Cal, pursues the two criminals who shot him to a remote farm owned by troubled vet Eric (Murray). As Cal and Eric plot their defense, more of the gang arrives — along with a wounded David — and, outnumbered, the three heroes must use stealth, smarts, and marksmanship to take down the drug-dealing mob.
Survive The Game is now available On-Demand and Digital, DVD, and Blu-Ray.
