We are a team of Set Designers from Wimbledon College of Art currently in the process of putting together our Graduation Exhibition.
About the Project
Welcome to Set Design for Screen at Wimbledon. This year our graduating class are putting on an exciting and innovative degree show, which will be exhibited at Wimbledon College of Art in June.
Why Our Show Is Important
The show is always an exciting opportunity for students from Wimbledon to showcase their work to the public: from families and friends to industry professionals. The show is vital in building a reputation for the course and the students, getting our names out into the industry as we look for employment in the following months. In addition, the show will be vibrant and is an exciting social opportunity with all welcome to attend. Importantly for us, our show is also being transported as a pop up exhbition to the BFI Southbank in Waterloo which is also a fantastic opportunity.
We have designed and curated the entire show as a collective, with all members of the class working together on the overall look. The exhibition takes place in the brand new building at Wimbledon College of Art, one designed with sustainability in mind. We have followed this theme and focused on sourcing recycled materials with the design mirroring the understated and minimalist look of the new studios. The key concept we will be exhibiting is the full process of designing for the screen: from our heads into moving image. All the while we have concentrated on removing the individual and aim to present our whole group as a cohesive practising unit. We want the show to be fun and engaging but also informative and we hope that our design caters for this.
What We Need and Why
While we have worked hard fundraising over the past few months, setting up film clubs, raffles and travelling to car boot sales in the early hours, we still need backing in order to achieve some of our ambitions. We still need to find a way to fund screens, projectors, lighting and many of the structural and DIY aspects. Moreover, we will be showcased in the Wimbledon Theatre and Screen Catalogue which will require funding for design and printing.
We hope you enjoy the video and are interested in supporting the project. Most importantly we hope to see you at what should be a hugely enjoyable degree show!
