In my previous life, I was a theatrical lighting designer. Lighting design is expected to fulfill multiple goals onstage, such as:
MOOD - How do you want the audience to feel?
Sense of fun - Singin' in the Rain from the Bon Voyage Shipboard Review - Queen Mary
Dramatic foreshadowing - In the Sweet Bye and Bye - Back Alley Theater
Nightmare sequence - An Original Jimmy Shine - UCLA
VISIBILITY and FOCUS - What and how much do you want to reveal to the audience? Where do you want them to look?
Found a Peanut - Back Alley Theater
DIMENSIONALITY - Define the shape of the actors and the scenery. At times light becomes part of the scenery.
St. Joan - UCLA
Hawk - UCLA
Hawk - UCLA
Even though lighting was my visual form of storytelling in the pictures above, the same elements and purposes must resonate to create depth in the stories I tell with words.
Have you brought elements from other art forms into your writing?
