Created projected light effect on festival winning play, “Disappearing”

Winning in almost every category at the Take Ten 10-Minute Play Festival, “Disappearing,” directed by Jaclyn Gramigna, had a unique approach to convey the very act of disappearing. With the only set design coming from a projector, I created light that rose up and faded away timed to the script. The play started with a full white light screen illuminating the characters in full. Slowly and almost unnoticably, the light faded-away upwards. At the climax of the play, the two characters are in the midst of a sunset, with colors wiping past them. By the end, the screen is black- illuminating nothing, as the characters have disappeared.
