CHAPTER 15

Present the [Best] Solution

 

 

 

After a robust development process, you will eventually come to the point where you and your director agree that you have settled on your [best] solution to the design problem.

For scenic designers, this takes the form of a white model, and for costume designers, this takes the form of detailed costume sketches.

After everyone’s concerns are taken into account, the designer proceeds with the final model and costume renderings.
