scenic designer

Optional Final Project instructions
Form a group of 4 that includes a director, a costume designer, a scenic designer, and a lighting
designer.
Choose any play that we have not read this semester. Every member of your team will need a
copy of the text.
Directors-answer the attached questionnaire in well thought out paragraphs, using quotations
from your text to support your choices. Your total page count should be no less than 4-5 double
spaced pages.
Costume designers-use the attached sheet to sketch out four costumes. These may be for the
same or different characters. Also complete a one-page long, well-reasoned explanation of your
choices, using quotations from your text to support your work.
Scenic designers-use the attached graph paper to create as full a rendering as you can of what
the set should look like. Also complete a one-page long, well-reasoned explanation of your
choices, using quotations from your text to support your work.
Lighting designers-use the attached cue sheet to describe changes in lighting looks throughout
the show. You need at least 10, probably more than that. Note the cue number (start numbering
with 1), the page number in the script, what the cue will do (i.e. lower lights on left side of the
stage, bring up spotlight on a character, etc), any extra description or notes (i.e. in order to isolate
the character, etc), and the count (i.e. how long will the change take-usually measured in
seconds). Also complete a one-page long, well-reasoned explanation of your choices, using
quotations from yOur text to support your work.
You will be graded on the specificity of your work and its relation to the text. Drawing skills are
less important, but set and costume renderings need to communicate your ideas. Technical
knowledge of lighting is MUCH less important than your ability to understand how light can
focus attention.
Answer the following questions in well thought out paragraphs, using quotations from your text
to support your choices.
What is your production concept? (i.e. “this is a play about ” + the metaphor/image (coin
toss, post apocalyptic, etc.) you will use to stage that story
How will the audience be able to know what your concept is? (Describe any of your own casting
or staging ideas)
How will the design elements fit into the production? (Scenic, Costume, Lighting)
What will the rehearsal process be like? (Describe how you’d like to work with the actors,
including their movement/blocking, any fight choreography, etc., and the kinds of both physical
and psychological work you would like the actors to do)
Take notes during at least one production meeting. What are the designers’ choices? How do
they contribute to and expand upon your concept?
