How to Begin

The best place to begin gathering set design ideas is by reading the script for the production. Look for specific references to the set, such as mention of doors, windows or stairs. If the scene is outdoors, look for references to rocks, trees, etc. A mental image of the scenes should be conceived as a starting point.

Once some initial ideas for the set have been thought of, the rest of the production design team should be consulted. Most productions are a collaborative effort, so ideas should be shared and discussed as early in the design phase as possible.
