Update on My Latest Set Design Posted by kyledixondesigns on Oct 02, 2011
Hey everyone!  A few weeks ago I posted some pictures of the model for my latest scenic design in production..."Uncle Pirate."  Well, that show opened in NYC last weekend, so I thought I'd follow up with pictures of the actual finished product.  Yes, there were some changes made during production, but on the whole it turned out exactly as planned.  As a designer, that's always a relief!

If you're in in the New York City area and you have kids, come check out "Uncle Pirate!"  Go to www.vitaltheatre.org for times, tickets, etc.

I'm posting model then actual scenic pictures to show the process.

Kyle,
It turned out great! Congratulations! I guess the replacement of a current for a drop in the preshow was a financial consideration. I think I like the original design more but it still works.

Thanks, Shawn!  Actually, the drop is still there.  You just can't see it in the pictures.  I'll post one of the drop as well.

Thanks so much, everyone!  It was such a fun project.  Now, on to the next one!

Fab work Kyle! The show looks like a lot of fun!

Slightly related question: I am working on a design for a market stall set up for my puppets, but need some help working out the details. I'd really love a set designer to work with. Is that something that you'd do/be interested in? I don't need a builder (obviously, we're in different countries anyway), just someone to help me gather my ideas into a plan, make sure I've got all my requirements solved, and come up with an overall design to help with atmosphere and encourage play (puppets are easier to sell if people can play with them). If it is, PM me your email address and we can discuss further.
