Interview: Production Designer Ramsey Avery – ‘No One Will Save You’, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’

Geektown Behind The Scenes Podcast 72

by Dave Elliott

Welcome to a new Geektown Behind The Scenes podcast. This week I’m chatting with Ramsey Avery, the Production Designer behind Disney & Hulu’s really wonderful and unique sci-fi horror film ’No One Will Save You’.

Written and directed by Brian Duffield, ‘No One Will Save You’ follows Brynn (Kaitlyn Dever – ‘Justified’, ‘Dopesick’, ‘Unbelievable’), an exiled anxiety-ridden homebody, who must battle an alien that found its way into her home. What makes the movie particularly unique is that it features only 5 words of dialogue in the entire film.

The lack of dialogue made Ramsey’s job an interesting challenge as he needed to help showcase all of the unspoken storytelling through his production design. It meant that his sets and designs had to be intricately planned and executed to make up for lack of words and to use the world around the main character to explain everything from who Brynn is and her backstory, to the reasoning behind her choices and her relationships with other people in town with whom she only has a single non-verbal interaction.

In the interview, we not only discuss Ramsey’s work on ‘No One Will Save You’, but also his impressive back catalogue of projects including ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’, ‘Minority Report’, ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, and ‘Team America: World Police’. He’s also worked on ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2’, ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ and the upcoming ‘Captain America: Brave New World’. Plus, he has designed various theme park attractions, including the Avengers Campus at Disney’s California Adventure.

If you want to check out ’No One Will Save You’ (and I suggest you do, as it is a great little movie!) you can find it right now on Disney+ in the UK and on Hulu in the USA.
