    "A Stage Apart" Lecture series: Design Workflow

    Goal; to compile and expand upon a set of recommendations on how to best work together to establish deadlines for design and completion and have a documented process by which to refer back to, to avoid scrambling to get everything done at the last minute.

    Covers:

    [top]Initial Meeting

    Early on in the beginning stages of a production, an initial meeting is called to brief the production team on the show. The main focus of this meeting is for the director to convey his or her concept for the production, as well as for designers brainstorm some initial ideas. This meeting establishes direction and a rough idea of some details. Other things covered can include deadlines, schedules, building rules, and other topics not directly associated with the design process. [Radman, 10/09/07]

    Hey, we can dream...


    [top]Communicating designs and changes

    Make sure that you stay on top of giving the Director and other designers information about your design when you make changes. Your work changes everyone's work, keep everyone on the production design team in the loop about things in your design. Up-dates on your design should be given during every production meeting, this should be a normal thing in your schedule of things to talk about at production meetings.

    How is it now? There's definitely a learning curve to this "collaborative articles" thing, but after all, we're theatre people, we should know how to collaborate.;) It's just the execution/data-entry that's getting in our way.

    Its all messed up again, maybe its just me but the whole streamlined pretty glitzy layout disappears when it gets edited it seems.
