The Advanced Studio course is an introduction to set design, research, construction, and light rigging. In this course students choose a set theme, construct it, light it, and dress it, all on time, and on budget. Students work in groups during the set construction phase of the course, and then individually to produce at least two unique portfolio quality images. Students are required to incorporate the lighting techniques and computer graphic skills (as necessary) acquired in earlier courses in order to achieve a photo illustration in the virtual reality studio environment they created. Students will also be introduced to, and required to participate in, light weight construction techniques used by the industry.
