Take world-class Hollywood production designer and art director Patricia Woodbridge who most recently worked on the set of the feature films Sherlock Holmes and Shutter Island. Pair her with nationally-renowned scenic designer and SCAD professor Hal Tiné, whose credits include the Broadway hits The Trip Back Down and Jerry's Girls to his name. The result is a rare and dynamic glimpse into the world of designing for mainstream entertainment such as theatre, film, tv, and corporate events. Drawing on designs from real Hollywood and Broadway blockbusters, this book provides readers with the basic tools and principles of scenic drafting and rendering, beginning with traditional hand drawing lessons. It then leads them into the digital age to enhance their designs with all new coverage of professional applications such as Illustrator, Photoshop, and Maya. Programs for 2-D and 3-D modelling like Sketch-up, Vectorworks 3D, and AutoCad are also covered, along with Green Screen Technology for film design. Full of examples from all areas of entertainment, this book not only provides readers with the basic and more advanced principles of designer drafting, but also gives the young designer a survey of scenic career possibilities. * New focus on digital drafting and 3-D applications. *New and revised illustrations throughout, including prolific designs featured in Sherlock Holmes, I Am Legend, True Grit, and Gossip Girl. *Now vibrantly illustrated in full color, setting it apart from its competitors, all of which are in B&W.
