Sorry for the delay in posting. Been busy with work. More soon. I promise!
Thanks for everyone’s great messages and the responses I’ve received so far. You all are the best and it’s great to know there are others out there also interested!
Tell your friends, and message me your thoughts or awesome set designs.
My usual answer to questions like this is:
Wherever the item would be stored after strike, is the department the item belongs too.
In the case of chairs I would argue thats a prop item and not a set piece.
What do you mean by “Fragmented Set”?
Glad to hear you enjoy the blog! Tell your friends!
In terms of a designer portfolio I would suggest only including work that supports the type of artist you want to be. Include material that shows the breath of your work.
The biggest thing though is layout. Make your portfolio exciting to look at. No just plain print outs. Matte them at the very least. Make it so if you weren’t there to present it- anyone could pick it up and know exactly what they are looking at. If you can’t design a page of images well, why is someone gonna hire you to design a set- so presentation and style is key.
Anyone got a suggestion?
