Set Decoration: The Forgotten Narrative

Do you love set decoration and set dressing, or do you dread it? Either way, this month’s S*P*A*Minar is for you!

Next Sunday, Larry Heyman, S*P*A*M Member, Properties professor and set decorator will lead a conversation about the challenges presented by set dressing, set decoration and design. He’ll examine the concept that set decoration and dressing is an extension of the narrative created by the director and set designer. Participants will discuss issues and concerns facing the modern properties director as they embark on “painting” the details of the set from an artistic and storytelling perspective.

We’ll talk about the details can be learned about a character by examining their surroundings. These details are not items usually found on the prop list, but are what help create 3-dimensional characters as opposed to a flat caricatures.

When: Sunday, November 14th at 8pm EST
Where: From the comfort of your home!
