A study of the processes and techniques of creating scenic environments for theatrical and film productions, this course will approach scene design from such perspectives as realism, conceptual or thematic aesthetics, cultural traditions, and/or period styles. An understanding of the visualization of space and place will be realized through research, script analysis and interpretation, drawing, painting, drafting, model making, computer aided design/rendering, and portfolio presentation. Students will be required to participate in a design-related production crew during the semester. This course includes a lab fee. Prerequisites: TFMS 170, 171, or consent of the instructor.
