Mellon Collie Set
In my first production design class, we had an assignment to create a stage set based on a short piece of music. We also had to use lighting and movement to convey mood. I was inspired by the Smashing Pumpkins' instrumental "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness" and emulated the album art style in the design of the set (which, in itself, emulated the style of Georges Melies). For the transition, I made the second set able to be lowered down from the top of the model and I also changed the lighting to fit into a more warm, dreamlike state like the music.
