THE WRITER - DESIGN PROJECT

It’s the forest scene. When the set open like a book, the forest suddenly appears in front of the audience. I want the audience to feel the surprise. The scene is full of colour and I used a lot of reflective material because I want the light to be free and random.

TINY DYNAMITE - COSTUME & SET DESIGN

Two men have been best friends since they were little. They had a girl mate too, who they loved and lost.Our whole set design will be divided into two parts, front and back, by a window structure, and behind the window we want to put some lights behind it so that we can create some projections.
