Set Design - Everyday Life - Kenneth A. Larson

AutoCAD© Architectural Desktop, 2002.
I worked as a computer specialist Set Designer on the television pilot for Everyday Live for eight days. It was a typical project. My project was to design three sets, a large multi-purpose second floor space, a small two room attic bedroom, one room was a bathroom set shared with the first set, and an unrelated loft conversion. All the sets had complex ceilings with arches and beams. I developed several built-in book shelves for the main set. Because it was a sit-com, the sets were intertwined. I produced about six sheets, one computer model, and one foam core model in 8 - 8 hour days.

I used AutoCAD© Architectural Desktop 2002. In addition to 2D CAD drawings, I also made a computer massing model using AutoCAD Architectural Desktop, and a foam core Art Department study model. My versatility enables me to work in traditional pencil draftings and physical models as well as computer aided drafting and virtual computer models.

This was not a typical Sit-Com, but rather, employed improvisation.

Drawings and models include:

Revised plan.
Revised elevation.
Computer model.
Foam core model.

I was not able to take a photo of the foam core model that I built on my last day. I had only five hours to make last minute revisions to the drawings and then build a model. I was not prepared and did not have proper tools or materials, but was able to build the model in about three hours. There was no time to photograph the model before it flew off to a meeting.
