Model Making for the Stage focuses on the scenographic model and its crucial creative role in the theater-making process. Although it is primarily designed to meet the needs of students and practicing stage designers, the skills and techniques of accurate scale modeling are also transferable to hobbies like model railways and dolls’ houses. Contents include practical information about model-making materials and setting up a working environment; foundation skills, techniques, and exercises to introduce the art of model making; instructions for constructing scale interiors, exteriors, and furniture, as well as scale figures; scenographic models as communication tools; information about theater technology, scenic construction, and painting; and presentation of the final scenographic model. Keith Orton is a design instructor at Britain’s Central School of Speech and Drama.
Keith Orton has worked as a professional designer since 1991, as well as tutoring at Central School of Speech and Drama. Recently he has specialized in pantomime design working with Joyce Branagh exclusively. He has a particular interest in how design can help and influence the development of new writing.
