Final Binder Project
The final binder will include all of the elements of your design for the assigned play.
Most of these assignments will have been done in class and returned to you with comments and grades. The items in the binder are NEW DOCUMENTS that are updated, corrected, and improved. You should be working in the binder—revising and expanding the assignments as they are returned, building the binder itself, developing the concept of the production—throughout the class. Don't leave the whole thing until the last minute.
The binder will receive its own grade as your final project
You should look at this project as though you are designing or directing a Studio Showcase production; all of the design elements for a realized production of a one-act play in the Sullivan Studio Theatre should be in it.
- Script, notated as a working text
- Design approach statement
- Ground plan of set design in scale
- Set design research
- Prop list
- Prop research
- Lighting cues
- Lighting research
- Sound cues
- Costume given circumstances of characters
- Costume list

- Any further supporting research, sketches, swatches, etc. that you want to include.
All elements are neatly organized in a 1/2" binder, with tabbed dividers and a cover that identifies the play, designer (you), class, and date.
