SAT/SUN: LIGHTSTREAM/EXETER;@3 months ago with 1 note
It is great to be back at studios, shame did not use it as much in previous years. However, this time I am going to take the most out of it.
3rd year started a bit rough. My set design was not properly finalized and well developed to be presented for the production team, which was really embarrassing and made me feel unprofessional. Also, after not working on this project for all summer, the set design and concept of the play did not seem to have potential any longer (now I know it is really a bad idea to step away from your work for too long, because you loose a contact with your design and it is hard to bring it back).
However, two weeks passed by already, my model box is well developed and most of the base constructions are nearly made. Only further paint work has to be improved and some key props to be made. Also a clear props and sourced set list has to be finalized. It is going to be time consuming, so I need to make sure I do as soon as model box design is to stage I am happy with (hopefully by the end of this week).
In terms of making and developing model box, I found it really enjoyable. I feel like my model making skills are pretty good. At some point in the future, would be exciting to work further with theater spaces design through the model making and experimental research of the materials, stage composition and etc.
Have to mention, tutors support and guides were really beneficial for my project development. Also, I believe this time I have managed to organize my work plan much better than for IP unit, which helps my clearly identify what tasks I should be accomplishing by what time and it helps me to stay on track.
For the rest of the third week I have planed meeting with Yuri and Kavi as well as Lighting Technician to discuss stage illuminating possibilities. In order to further develop this side of the design, I have to go back to the text.
I found it important to revision the play as sometimes you get too much stuck into designing, set construction and move way to far from the initial idea.@4 months ago
