Art Director - 'Time Warped'
Ferny Creek Primary School Production 2017
For someone who loves the theatre, this job is a dream!! As Art Director (and parent), I work closely with staff, students and parents to produce a whole school production. It takes over all of term 3, and everyone is involved. I design mood boards with colours and themes that sets the tone for the show. We shop for fabric, paint, materials, design costumes, make sets and props. The children design the backdrops which are projected onto the back wall of the theatre.
The show is put on at Burrinja's theatre, and tickets sell out fast! Over two nights, the children perform their hearts out, with parents and teachers helping not only backstage
but with lights and sound, filming, photography, and kid wrangling. It is a massive amount of work for all teachers, staff and parents who work night and day to make it the best show possible. It's the best experience, and I feel so privileged to be involved.
Here is a collection of images showing the progress, from my concept sketches to the backdrop artwork, costume development, rehearsals, and some final images of the performances.
