It's a Wonderful Life

Lighting Designer

It's A Wonderful Life was a part of University of Minnesota Duluth's 2012-2013 season. This show was an interesting undertaking as UMD performed this classic tale as a Radio Play. The scenery did not change from scene to scene and lighting was used to create the ambience of different locations. We used lighting to create two different worlds. A false proscenium was created which was made out of scrim. When lighted in front we created the world of the radio studio where the actors performed. Behind the walls of the studio was the world of George Bailey and the locations to which he traveled.
