Set Design/ Light Design
Fiddler on a Roof was an opportunity to experiment with the mixture of sound and lighting design. I wanted to create a set that would be dynamic enough to capture the many different settings and moments of the play. Using Muslin I create a large Framed "Canvas" and built a two dimensional masonite structure and attached it to the back of the frame. The effect is when projected from the back the image of a house appear and when the back light is out we have a flat surface to project on from the front. using the rgb spectrum on the front back and cyc, I had full control of which colors appeared where and when.
