Directors Talking Design  

The secrets to great director/designer collaborations - navigating the relationship between director and designers. 


Want to know the secret to speaking the language of design? Join us for 3 frank and open conversations between directors and designers as we pull back the curtain on what's involved in great collaborative partnerships.  With discussion covering processes and practicalities step-by-step from pre-production through to opening night, these sessions will give you an inside view of a range of design conversations - those you need to have, have to have and find hard to have.  How do you say no when visions don't align? How do you know someone's blue isn't your violet? How do you argue for your idea (when you know you're right)?

Director Caroline Stacey and Designer Gerry Corcoran talk all things lighting.
