The seagull ppt

  1. 1. The Seagull By: Anton Chekhov Light Designer: Cameron Brown
  2. 2. Visibility • The lighting will vary depending on the mood –Happy moments will utilize bright lighting –Sad moments will have faint lighting and have a spotlight to help the audience see more –To portray the love triangle and poor timings toward love, red lasers will be implemented on stage • Autumn leaves will be on stage to brighten it up during happy moments
  3. 3. These are the color schemes, I want to use to brighten up the stage Red lasers will be shined on stage subtly to show the love triangle and guide the audiences attention This drastic change will show the change in visibility when the mood changes from happy to sad
  4. 4. Revealing Shapes and Forms The openings in the set and how the light hits them shows the many opportunities that can happen within the play and reveal an intricate set This beautiful stage will be used to start off Act II in a serene & somber way after the first attempted suicide
  5. 5. Providing A Focus • There are two different approaches since there is two clear moods • Happy and funny moments – Focus will be provided through red lasers directing you toward the action and the affection triangle • Sad and foreshadowing moments – The audiences attention will be drawn through spotlights and shadows on stage
  6. 6. Providing A Focus Spotlights will be used during somber moments
  7. 7. Establishing A Time & Place • The Seagull, initially premiered in the 1890’s, but we want to incorporate the old school feel as well as utilizing new technology • Our set will take place outside so it is important that the lighting resembles it so we will use a filter over the light • Keeping the time period realistic we also want to have a scene lit by candles and a spotlight so it shows the simplicity of the times in the 1890’s
  8. 8. Establishing A Time & Place Lighting a stage with candles brings out the beauty in lighting & resembles how most plays were produced at night
  9. 9. Establishing a rhythm of movement • It’s important to make transition smooth and quick • Audiences do not want to wait, but value quickness during changes in lighting and set • There will be an extensive crew that sets the stage and lighting changes will only be made when the mood is set to change in the play
  10. 10. Reinforcing the Central Image & Metaphor • The metaphor in The Seagull would be a clock – It symbolizes time and how everything will happen when the time is right – The circle of the clock represents the theme with timing playing a pivotal role with love and feelings • Central image of our play would be love – With love the main color is red and it allows the lighting to use red as a focal point
  11. 11. Reinforcing the Central Image & Metaphor Lighted clocks and subliminal circular objects will also portray theme
