Carl Sprague has worked in the art department of more than 30 films, which between them have a combined total of 29 Oscar nominations, including best picture winner “12 Years a Slave”. He has worked with Martin Scorsese (The Age of Innocence), Steven Spielberg (Amistad), and David Fincher (The Social Network), but the most enduring collaboration has been with Wes Anderson. Carl has been in the art department of three of Anderson’s best-reviewed films — “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (concept illustrator), 2012’s “Moonrise Kingdom” (assistant art director), and 2001’s cult classic “The Royal Tenenbaums” (art director, for which he was nominated for an Art Director’s Guild Award).
