Jack Fisk (born December 19, 1946 in Canton, Illinois) is an American production designer and director.
As a production designer, he is known for his collaborations with Terrence Malick, designing all of his eight films including; Badlands (1973), Days of Heaven (1978), The Thin Red Line (1998) and The Tree of Life (2011). His other credits include films like; Phantom of the Paradise (1974), Carrie (1976), Eraserhead (1977), Heart Beat (1980), The Straight Story (1999), Mulholland Drive (2001), Water for Elephants (2011), The Master (2012) and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Production Design for There Will Be Blood (2007) and The Revenant (2015).
He made his directorial debut with Raggedy Man (1981) and went on to direct films Violets Are Blue (1986), Daddy's Dyin': Who's Got the Will? (1990), Final Verdict (1991), and the episodes of television series On the Air (1992).
Fisk was art director on Brian De Palma's Carrie (1976), in which his wife, Sissy Spacek, played the title role. He frequently collaborates with directors Terrence Malick and David Lynch (whom he has known since childhood). His production design and art director credits include all eight of Malick's feature films and Lynch's The Straight Story (1999) and Mulholland Drive (2001). He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Art Direction for Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood. He received his second Academy Award nomination for the film The Revenant at the 88th Academy Awards.
Fisk appeared in Lynch's Eraserhead (1977) as the Man in the Planet, and the film's credits give "special thanks" to him and to Sissy Spacek (who reputedly held the slates between takes).
Fisk met his wife, Spacek, when working on Terrence Malick's 1973 film Badlands, in which she portrayed the aloof and distant version of Caril Ann Fugate. The couple married on April 12, 1974. They have two daughters, Schuyler Fisk (born 1982), also an actress, and Madison Fisk (born 1988), a painter.
