Set Dresser

QVC UK

Aug 2013
  • As a QVC Set Dresser it is my responsibility to ensure that all shows during my eleven hour shift are set to the highest standard and in keeping with QVC’s style, prior to going to air. Setting a show requires me to liase with a range of people from the studio floor staff, to the guests going to air. The objective of which is to create an environment that is aesthetically correct and to compliment the product/brand due to be sold. Excellent time management and forward planning is crucial to this role, without which the installation of furnishings, dressing and product placement could not take place. As well as setting the live shows, occasionally I will be required to go out on location promotion shoots, both as a Set Dresser and Set Stylist.

MA by Research, Kinetic Screens: Can the use of a Kinetic Screen be Utilised as a Medium That Enable

University of Huddersfield

Mar 2016 - Mar 2016
  • Abstract This thesis explores the application of what is best described as a kinetic projection screen and its use within a performance environment. It examines the kinetic screen’s application within performances over centuries of development, from the use of the Watchman’s Lamp (Heard, 2006), a device used to create shadows, to the modern day. How can this form of projection viewing be created and delivered within a performance? Is there initial evidence to indicate an alteration to the way in which an audience views the content on a kinetic screen, such as physical engagement, opposed to a static screen? This thesis analyses theatrical theories and interviews with Arts practitioners and companies, who already have, or currently are applying kinetic projection viewing within their work. Research within this thesis has been collected through practical examination, illustrating the development, construction and demonstration of a number of kinetic projection screens.
