As a lead prop designer for Brown Opera Productions of Igor Stravinsky's A Soldier's Tale I was tasked to design and fabricate all the props used throughout the show. Responsibilities included research, developing the overall visual style and branding of the play, working within a tight budget and timeframe, collaborating with set and costume designers and helping produce the director's vision.
First steps included script reading, taking prop inventory, research, and creating a mood board inspired by the constructivist art style. Next steps including sketching, collecting reference images and receiving approval with the director before fabricating the props. A few of the props are shown below.
