The New Puppeteer

These are some of the pages from the wrap book I made for an independent study for my M.A. Final Project class. My goal for this project was to do a full Set Decoration packet for a short film written by the dramatic writing students at SCAD. This film was about a traditional Chinese shadow puppet theatre and a house of an Architect in the small village of Tai-O, Hong Kong. I designed studio set for the Hong Kong house to be built in Atlanta and sourced props from prop houses in Atlanta for different setups. The Wrap-book for this project included Script breakdown, Set List, Set Decoration mood boards of different setups, Set designs made in Google SketchUp, Set Decoration inventory, vendors list and budgets etc.
