anyone have any suggestions on building a lighting design portfolio for college auditions?
This a big thing in all my design classes, after big project there is a talk back/interview where the prof. will ask you questions. Most of the time they are very detailed and seem like they are trying to belittle you when infact they want to make sure your reasoning is sound. Want to light the Dairy of Ann Frank in only green and purple fine but you better have a **** good reason for it.
plot made in cad or vector works makes things look better.
hand drawn plots and my channel lists i make in excel. should i include some of my photography?
If the photography is more on the art side of things and not snapshots by all means yes.... anything that shows your artistic eye is a plus... also if you have any construction shots of any set pieces or costumes that you have built that is also a plus becasue most schools will have you working in a shop of some sort... just try to stay away from "i know how to hang a light" or "i can make a power point" type of stuff...
binder I show clients. I also have a visualizer of some past events, with a cuelist set up, then I have a video of that same event showing how the visualizer and the event actually looked together.
With digital video cameras, editing software, and dvd burners so cheap, it's economical to put together your own reel. Tape the shows, copy that to your computer, edit it with some cheap/free software, burn it to dvd. Tedious, but a necessary evil any more.
