Scene Design Commission Poster Session–Call For Projects

Heidi Hoffer Scene Design & Technology Commission

The Scene Design & Technology Commission has issued a call for projects for its inaugural poster session, I Made It Myself.

This is an opportunity for anyone wishing to share ideas and processes in scenic design as well as become more active and involved in USITT.

Submissions may include, but are not limited to, innovative solutions to scene design problems, crafting exciting props, developing a new painting technique, pioneering new teaching methods, or using old products in interesting new ways. A project abstract, image file, and 50-word bio – all in PDF format – will be uploaded to the USITT website. After review, those selected will be asked to participate in the 2014 session as part of the 2014 Annual Conference in Fort Worth in March. Biographies of presenters will be used in the Conference Program. A page on the USITT website detailing submission instructions will be available in August.

Abstracts should include a concise but detailed description of the project in 200 words or less. The single visual attachment allowed should be no larger than 18 by 24 and 650KB or less .pdf file size. To help ensure complete anonymity, submitters should leave their name and institution out of the file name and out of the content of the abstract.

Entries will be judged on the basis of innovation, invention, problem solving, and creativity. The “cool factor” will also be considered. Members selected will wear a “Presenter” ribbon on their name badges. This may fulfill a member’s need to present at the Conference in order to receive travel funds.

Some of the posters from the session may also be published in TD&T.
