Reka Vivien

Réka is a Hungarian - American production designer, born in Los Angeles to Hungarian parents. She moved to Hungary at the age of 6 and lived there for 19 years before moving back to LA.

 

She realized her passion for film while attending Oxford Brookes University in Budapest. After graduating, she started production designing and costume designing for student films at the Budapest Metropolitan University, later worked for Moviebar, a Budapest based film production company as a producer's assistant where worked on over 25 international commercials.

 

When Réka moved to Los Angeles in 2015 she became involved with the American Film Institute where she returned to narrative storytelling while making AFI's high standards her own. 

 

She is known for her keen attention to detail, being on top of continuity on set, and deep involvement in the story and character development and its demonstration through visuals. She believes the production design is not only for making the set aesthetically appealing, but is also for helping to quietly tell the story in the background while staying true to the history and psychology of the script. 

Réka loves to travel with her dog, and is passionate about interior design and period films.
