Stage Layout Design

Prehaps the single most important part of any production is the stage layout, whilst we had to design many things, this is the aspect of production which required the greatest amount of time and attention, as our set design was based around the space allocated. We took measurements of the actual stage and made rough plans which included a scale model of it at a ratio of 1:25. Using this a an outline, we were able to create props to see how it will fit against the stage.

During the process of laying out the stage, i was able to endorse skills which i had previously lernt, for example with any production there is a necessity to run through the design layout before hand, whether the show is on a small scale or a grand one regardless of its genre. If the layout is created efficiently, it increases the likelihood of a successful show, and allows events to run smoothly.
