TV SET


A TV production company hired me to remodel their studio set. his old TV set. They wanted to change the look of the program and to adapt the set to people with limited mobility.
The old out-dated and impractical set.



The TV programme was about anonymous people who had lived a special life. I thought that it could be amazing to show their lives on big screens.

Maquette of proposed set.

In this scale model we can see the project idea; we work with 2x2x0,5 metre prismatic pieces. Each  built with consisting of a metallic structure and covered with medium density fibreboard panels and ¿or? rear projections screens. that These boxes are easy to assemble in the workshop and easy to build in the studio.

(The problem in this sentence was 'that', and I wasn't sure if it referred to the projection screens being able to be assembled easily or the actual boxes, and I thought you meant the boxes. And a new sentence always clarifies)




With the repetition of the prismatic pieces we built a big wall that created the  backdrop for the shots. I tried to resolve the three kinds of shots (general, medium and short ¿close-up?) with only one gesture; action the repetition of the blocks.
 
We needed three sets for this TV programme:
  • an interview set with a door behind that would allow the possibility of surprising the guest. to surprise the principal actor of the story
  • a performance set with steps to go down the scene and a platform for shadow play.                  
  • a central set where all the stories ends with the tribute of all the people in  the studio.

The performance set with screen for shadow play.

The central set where the story ends.

Whit the repetition of the prismatic pieces we build a big wall that will create the  background for the shots. I tried to resolve the three kinds of shots (general, medium and  short) with only an action, the repetition of the blocks.

  • an interview set with a door at the background that allow the possibility to surprise the principal actor of the story.            
  • a performance set with stairs to go down the scene and a platform for shadow play.                  
  • a central set where all the stories ends with the tribute of all the people in  the studio.

  1. Curro, it's always nice to have something completely different, and it is interesting to see the thought that goes into something that is taken for granted by most people.
    I'm not sure I'll ever get to see this programme, but I think it's amazing that you've solved the three problems with one coherent solution. I like the way they seem woven, like a tapestry of life. The model is interesting too and I totally believe that simple models or 'maquettes' in paper and coloured can often be more convincing than beautifully finished models in wood or metal.
