Implementing virtual reality into the creative set design process Bhikum, Kimira


This thesis explores how the theatre industry could adopt virtual reality into the creative set design process to provide a director with a walkthrough of a set before it is built. The aim is to create a better visual platform for communication between a director and a scenic designer, as well as enhance collaboration with the entire production team. I investigate different software to achieve a successful workflow that is used in a case study that involves creating a set design from start to finish with a director and other industry professionals. The results and responses are evaluated to establish if virtual reality will benefit the creative set design process and how it can be used in other creative streams in the industry.
