In this course, students will dive head first into the technical aspects of producing a musical designed for both the stage as well as television. Working together we will be tasked with the creation and design of the world in which the performance will take place. This includes all sound, lighting, scenery, props, video, projection and interactive multimedia elements required for the new musical written by students in the Fall CCS course, "CCS TV Musical."
The final performance will ultimately stream in perpetuity on UCTV (UC Television) and likely air, too, on Cox Cable locally.
We will start by analyzing the script and imagining the many possible ways of making it come to life onstage. Students will be involved in a variety of roles in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the technical side of theater. After the initial design phase, we will build and install our world, including all scenery, technology, and multimedia content required to create the experience. We will also run technical rehearsals as well as work with UCSB Video Services on the successful creation of the televised portion of the musical. Students from Art, Dramatic Arts, and students interested in working with interactive technology are highly encouraged to enroll!
