Entertainment Design and Technology

Entertainment Design and Technology TheaterFrom concerts to car shows, movies to museums, entertainment design is everywhere you look. The entertainment industry is a fast-expanding, multi-dimensional business that employs hundreds of thousands of people nationwide. It offers exciting and rewarding career opportunities for skilled and creative technicians, designers and mangers. This hands-on class offers a broad-based view of the backstage aspects of theatre, allowing students to explore the major area of theatre design and technology. These include scenic and costume design – where students will be manipulating tools and materials in order to create tangible elements to help tell their stories: as well as the more “atmospheric” (and often computer-based) disciplines of lighting, sound, and projection – which create environments in their own cutting-edge ways. Each student will spend a morning and afternoon session in each discipline, creating and designing elements (based on a central story or “text”) that will contribute to the final “performance” of the story on the final day.
