On successful completion of this module students should be able to:
1. Demonstrate understanding of conceptual, investigative and communicative methodologies particular to the process of scenographic composition.
2. Demonstrate an holistic understanding of the inter-relationship between media-specific elements employed in the process of scenographic composition.
3. Employ a range of computer applications at a basic level as further communicative and exploratory instruments within the process of scenographic composition.
4. Employ physical notebooks as sites for conducting and documenting the process of scenographic composition.
5.Demonstrate an awareness of the strategies employed, procedures followed and role fulfilled by the Scenographer in formulating, presenting and realising proposals,
Through the lecture/workshop series and related assignments an uderstanding of the inter-relationship between media-specific elements employed in the process of scenographic composition will be developed. The module also examines the use of working notebooks and computer applications as further communicative and explorative instruments within the scenographic process, and as sites for the documentation of this process. The module also introduces students to the application of methodology and skills through observation of a Departmental production process.
