Digital Techniques

  1. 1. Digital Techniques for Theatre Designers Sarah Lewis
  2. 2. Getting to grips with Photoshop <ul><li>This was the first time I had used Power Point and so at first I had a difficult time with even the simplest of instructions. After a while however, I was able to get my head around the necessary procedures. </li></ul><ul><li>In this exercise, I learned how costume designs can be easily created in a way that specific fabrics and colours can be shown in a way perhaps a painting or a sketch could not. </li></ul><ul><li>Here, I simply cut and pasted ready saved fabrics, made them less opaque over the images and cut away the excess fabric. </li></ul>
  3. 3. “ Oh What a Lovely War” mood board… <ul><li>This is the mood board I developed using techniques after thinking about the imagery appropriate for the play </li></ul><ul><li>I used various techniques including overlapping, making images less opaque, changing the colour scheme and smoothing edges off. </li></ul>
  4. 4. 3D Studio Max <ul><li>This is my first attempt at a room environment, in the image you can see that I experimented with different lighting </li></ul><ul><li>I worked out how to position the spot light in an effective manner, how to change the colour of the light, and how to created shadow. </li></ul>
  5. 5. 3D Studio Max - Cloning <ul><li>This image demonstrates how I used the clone tool to very quickly make many identical objects. </li></ul>
  6. 6. 3D Max – adding to the room <ul><li>I experimented a little further and created furniture for my room – adding pictures on the walls by using the box tool to make very thin flat shapes and then inserting the image on top </li></ul><ul><li>I also created “an ornament” by draying a shape with the line tool and using lathe to make it 3D. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Autocad – beginning stage <ul><li>This was my initial attempt at creating a shape with Autocad. </li></ul><ul><li>I learned how to set the length of the line of a shape and how to ensure the line you drew would head in either a vertical or horizontal direction. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Autocad - Progression <ul><li>At this point, I learned how to make more complicated shapes. </li></ul><ul><li>I used tools which enabled me to cut across and round off corners to make variations of squares. </li></ul><ul><li>I also learned hot to add different layers so that I could use different colours to show the dimensions and angles of the shapes. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Floppy Disk <ul><li>This is the beginning of the floppy disk I created using autocad, and finding my own way of creating the shapes using the techniques we had been shown </li></ul><ul><li>I found I used the tool which allowed me to quickly draw shapes and then crop unnecessary lines. </li></ul>
