Set designs for The Mikado

May 20, 2012

Here's a timelapse film showing the process of creating the sets for The Mikado.
It took 52 hours spread over a couple of weeks to paint the two 9x3 metre backdrops.
An interesting production problem was having only enough space at 'The Shed' to put two panels together at a time when painting.
I'd come home from some of the painting days physically exhausted.
Exhilirated! but exhausted.
A wonderful experience and a creative highlight of the year.

On the opening night the costuming was exceptional and the production very tight.
