ABOUT

Learning how to prepare or read a technical drawing is a key element for working in all the art department teams – you may not have to create them, but knowing what to look for and finding the relevant information is an important part of the job.

 Rod will be working with the group and will be looking at the following: 

  • examples of good and bad drawings – what works, what doesn’t and why

  • understanding the layout and knowing where the key information should be

  • learning where the plans, elevations and sections are in the drawing

  •  using the information in props, set decorating and construction teams

  •  setting up systems for successful filing and cataloguing

  •  checking the scale and printing of the drawing

  •  the correct equipment for drawing

 

SUITABLE FOR:

Anyone wanting to learn how to read a drawing; understand how drawings are created and used on feature films and HETV dramas; improve their own drawings; get some top tips and guidance from one of the industry’s very best

 

This is for a small group so there will be lots of networking opportunities and time to ask your own questions.
