aMerican Idiot

University of California, Irvine - Claire trevor theatre | 2018


Director: Andrew Palermo

Stage Manager: Erik Smith

Projection Designer: Elizabeth Barrett

Associate Projection Designer: Hannah Tran

I assisted the designer with the load in of the system, programming, and some content creation.


Given the information about the projector, the lenses we were using, and the projection surface, I drafted out the placement of the projectors.


I designed and built a shutter for the 2 backstage projectors to achieve a true blackout while the projectors were on but not in use, and they were attached to the top of the projectors. They follow OSC protocol and can be controlled by various programs such as Isadora or Qlab


One of the main characters writes many letters throughout the musical, and I was in charge of creating the content for these scenes.
