Quest: Designs Galore
Since the dawn of time, heroes have travelled together. They’ve banded under leaders and supported each other as they quested, and our House heroes are no different. We’ve followed them in their journey towards an inspired playing space… now what about the rest of their stories?
We’ll start with costume designer Melissa Torchia and her assistant Amy Prindle. These noble ladies are tasked with clothing the heroes of The Iron Stag King. A show’s costume design plays a variety of roles. It can tell an audience a lot about characters and the world they live in. At Tuesday’s meeting, Melissa revealed the fantastic sketches you can see here. Inspired by Native American and fantasy clothing, these costumes tell a story about the characters wearing them.
It’s up to lighting designer Sarah Hughey and her assistant Will Kirkham for you to be able to see them, though! As of now, they are staying in close conversation with set designer Colette Pollard. The possibility of having walls as places to put lights is incredibly exciting. Rest assured, these two will do their best to create some awesome lighting effects. The idea of a moving light source was mentioned with enthusiasm, so stay tuned!
Harrison Adams, sound designer, is looking to try some novel ideas, too. So novel, in fact, that few in the land have ever attempted them. Though it may sound like black magic, Harrison couldn’t be more excited. It’s called “procedural audio.” Instead of recording sound using expensive equipment and perfect conditions, this method uses math to generate sound. Through the witchcraft of Harrison’s gadgets, an entirely unfamiliar world will come to life through sound. Check back for samples and some more explanation from the man himself!
Of course, that’s not the end of the team. You’ll be hearing more about each of them as time goes on, so stay around the campfire while I spin you more tales of our House heroes and The Iron Stag King!
