I have been given a task to produce a set design which is based on the film called, "Little Shop of Horrors." As the set design is very important within theatres I am expected to create a stage which meets all of the requirements of the film as well as 1950's New York. During the process of organising an outstanding stage for an audience, I will be noting down key aspects of my planning. This includes the production of the design and as much research as possible. Also, it is essential to communicate with all members of my group and sharing new ideas. I will ensure that my ideas are original and I am asking opinions from my teacher and client. I am looking forward to creating an exciting design for the stage and an outcome I can proudly reflect on.

Colours & Moods

RED:Associated with love, danger, violence, anger & blood. In set design this colour can be used in love and violent fire scenes.

YELLOW: Represents joy, happiness, hope, sunshine,  summer. It is a symbol of friendship. This colour would be used in a happy scene also to show the summer season. 

PINK: Described to show femininity, sweet, kind & relaxing.  Pink would be desired for a set of a glamorous party or to portray a teenage girls bedroom.

GREEN: This colour signifies nature, the environment, health, luck, youth, spring & generosity. However, it could suggest jealousy and envy. It would be used outside such as in a rainforest  or garden.

PURPLE: Means royalty, luxury, wealth & knowledge. Could be used to show a expensive looking living room. 

ORANGE: It is considered a warm colour, enthusiasm & vibrancy.  This colour could be used at relaxing sets or even fire scenes.

BLUE: Represents peace, calm, trust, confidence, cleanliness & water. On the other hand it may suggest depression. This colour would represent the sea or ice. 

BROWN: This colour indicates reliability, genuineness. It can also be sad, regretful & masculine. Brown would be used for a fight or grubby setting. 


BLACK: This is a strong colour which symbols power, evil, sophistication, anger and death scenes. Also for crime and darkness. 

   WHITE: Symbolises innocence, purity,elegance, light & neutral. However it can be judged to be boring. Would be used to represent weddings.
