Description - The Handbook of Techniques for Theatre Designers by Colin Winslow

Theatre designers need to be proficient in an extraordinarily diverse range of skills to carry out their work. They are expected to be able to draw, both creatively and technically, to be able to use colour imaginatively, to make accurate scale models of their set designs, to design costumes, whether of a specific period, modern or entirely fantastical, to understand the relationship of their work to stage lighting, and to be able to use computer-technology in creative and imaginative ways. Drawing on a lifetime's experience as a professional theatre designer and teacher, Colin Winslow describes these techniques in detail with explanatory drawings and photographs, and suggests practical ways to acquire them. Each chapter concludes with a useful series of practical exercises. Guide to costume designs and costume-rendering techniques Instruction on drawing and sketching, the use of colour and hand-drafting techniques Advice on model-making, textures and perspective In-depth look at creative use of digital techniques Practical methods for the effective presentation of a range of design-work AUTHOR: Colin Winslow is a stage designer, lecturer and teacher with many years of professional experience.
