This unit offers an introduction to the aesthetics, theory and practice of set, spatial and costume design for dance, drama, film, television and live art installations. Students will learn to consider the scenic and aesthetic components of a project at a conceptual and practical level by applying the distinct skills of stage and screen production designers. Specialised workshops will be undertaken by experienced practitioners in the design and construction of set models, stage objects and props, and costume for live performance and screen production. For their final folio task, students will conduct research and develop a substantial design brief to demonstrate a detailed and creative response to the demands of genre, dramaturgical interpretation and location in live or screen production.
