This subject provides an extension of skills in two areas of specialisation selected from Lighting, Sound, Design, Workshop, Costume and Stage Management. This will allow students to further explore and develop skills in specific areas of study. The narrowing down of this subject into two modules enables students to concentrate more deeply and at a higher level.
To enable students to expand and develop knowledge introduced in Production Skills 1B.
Design focuses on the analysis of text, the development of original design concepts from that text, the effective communication of those concepts and an examination of the implications of those design concepts.
Workshop will examine typical prop and scenery making techniques and materials through a series of demonstrations and simple practical exercises. At the conclusion of this module students will be required to select, manage and complete a project using one or more of the skills covered. Projects will allow for individual skills development across a variety of materials and techniques.
Costume At the end of this module students should have developed an ability to undertake costume construction research, have a basic understanding of a specific period of pattern making techniques, a rudimentary knowledge of toile construction and have developed an ability to interpret a costume design through pattern making into a 3D form.
