'booth'

production designer

In my senior year at The North Carolina School of the Arts, I served as production designer on a 20 minute 16mm short film titled "Booth." This is considered my thesis production and had to be followed up with documentation. This page features some of the highlights. For BOOTH I designed and built a Gypsy Fortune Teller's Fantasy Layer and recreated a section of Ford's Theatre. I also oversaw some optical effects and the dressing of a number of location sets. The best way to view my work on this project is to view my PDF thesis book.
