Dimensioning Lights

I use this worksheet  to help my students learn how to add dimensions between lighting units on a sample light plot. Adding dimensions while drafting a light plot saves an immense amount of time and during the lighting crew calls when the lights are being found in the theatre.

 

Shading 2 Point Room, Part 1

Here I show how to shade our 2 point perspective front view sketch. These are basic sketching skills that will lead to creating front veiw renderings. Having sketches like these go a long way to help communicate with the director and the rest of the creative team during the pre-production process.

Shading 2 Point Room, Part 2

Shading our 2 point perspective front view of a basic set design. Adding more drama through darker shading. Creating a black and white front view rendering that a set designer, and/or a lighting designer would use to communicate with others what they planned on placing on stage for a production.

Making White Models using VectorWorks, part I

A tutorial showing how to create a basic ground plan of a simple set in Vectorworks. We then explore working planes that allow us to print each wall from its "front" view. These will then become the actual white model walls.
The tutorial is shown at a faster speed and sounds like it.
See part two for the paper version.
