Behind the Curtain
Today I made a trip to the theatre where my Man of La Mancha is being built. Everything looks correct so far and that's great! I did make a few adjustments while the buling was going on, I have learned over the years that this is ok to do. As the designer you have your heart set on exactly on how the set must be because you have planned it this way. After all, you have been model making and blueprint making for a couple of weeks and when you have to change something in life size scale you get frustrated or even a little embarrassed. I have learned that the frustratedness comes from feeling like you do not know what you are doing. All you have to do is correct it with the carpenter or just ask the director what they think. Heck a better idea may come along.......kinda like what happened today.
My blog is all about the design process, design in general (mainly set design),designers I love and architecture. Take a look behind the curtain!
