Lit Moon Tour Summer 2015

Super excited about our summer tour to Macedonia to present Lit Moon Theatre Company's productions of HAMLET and THE CHERRY ORCHARD. I will be developing lighting designs for these two shows. Both shows have been presented in the states...the former many times for nearly 15 years with a few different lighting designers and the latter several times this past year. The challenge in Macedonia...transforming intricate designs (what show doesn't have this component right?) into simple resources. Not sure how many lighting fixtures I will have or what kind of fixtures they will be...regardless, it will be an exciting adventure!

Here is where I will focus my energies to journal my process...stay tuned!

Once Upon A Mattress

Our first production at Huntington University this semester is Once Upon A Mattress, and I couldn't be more excited about realizing my first studio space scenic design. I hope it will allow for the students to learn and grow through a variety of design and production roles and responsibilities. I am currently preparing to create a ground plan and 1/2 " scale model for the space. I have drawn a rough sketch and created a digital model using Vectorworks. (Being a lighting designer, I prefer that program at this point to AutoCAD. I hope someday I will prefer both depending on what project I am working on.)

Here is the sketch...

Here is the digital model...

I still have some learning to do regarding rendering, but I am definitely getting closer and closer to feeling like I am mastering the program. I just hope I can get there before the software takes another giant leap forward.
