Designing the World of Emily Dickinson in Apple TV’s ‘Dickinson’ Season 2
I am Neil Patel, a production designer based in New York City. I was born in Wales and immigrated to the US as a child where my Indian father and English mother practiced medicine. I studied art and architecture as a student and began my career as a theatrical scenic designer. I designed sets for Broadway, Off Broadway, Opera and in many countries including India, Japan, UK, Italy and Spain. I always loved film and was able to start working as a production designer when writers I knew from the theater invited me to design their film and TV projects. This includes Warren Leight and Neil LaBute. Warren asked me to design In Treatment for HBO when it came to New York, and that began my crossover into production design.
