Tech Ninja: Design Lab edition
Tech Ninja:  Design Lab edition

Our Tech Ninjas return once again; this time in a special version focussing on the design elements that go into the show! Our primary focus this session will be on creating the sound lists, cues, effects, and music for our Spring shows. Learn how to use Q Lab to create one-of-a-kind sound effects, how to find music for scenes and how to design all the sounds that make a show pop!  We will also spend some time working on the basic concepts for designing sets, lights, and costumes, but the primary focus for this session will be sound design.
