Simona Migliotti Auerbach Production/set designer

When one imagines a dramatic story in a remarkable setting, often the details are a bit fuzzy. This course will explore how to create concrete designs and plans of interior and exterior spaces that convey narrative content. After researching the design of different historical periods, basic drafting and perspective techniques will be covered, including multiple angles, elevations and prop details. Character and costume designs, as well as how to professionally present ideas and plans to prospective clients and collaborators will all be addressed. Each student will be assisted in choosing the best medium/applications (including Adobe Photoshop) to bring a project to completion. The techniques covered can be applied to areas of stage, screen, animation and gaming. Open to students at all levels.
NOTE: Please bring a vellum tracing pad (11x14'' or larger), a sketchpad (11x14'' or larger) and 2B pencils to the first session.
