Tech Theatre Day 16- Set Design Research

Today, I will divide you into groups to research specific aspects of tech and design. The groups will be:

  • Painting
  • Puppetry
  • Construction
  • Buildings and style
  • Show era and design elements

You will begin research tomorrow and will submit your findings daily as you research. While you are researching, you will build a small presentation on your topic. This will include a 5 minute presentation with possible visuals, text, video and whatever else you find necessary to teach the class about your topic.

Some things to get you started on your research:

  • What is the history?
  • Why is it important to set design?
  • What are some well-known examples?
  • How can this apply to the show?
  • What projects do you expect to include your topic?
  • What was the most interesting thing you found in researching this?

Here is the rubric you will be graded on when presenting

  • Professionalism
  • Value of research
  • Value to class projects
  • Group participation
  • Visuals

You will present your findings in class on Day 20 (look to class calendar for specific date).
