Designer's Statement

The lighting design for Journey's End needed to create the dark and claustrophobic environment of a war dug-out. Candles from low angles and slivers of natural light that could barely penetrate the dug-outs were the only sources of illumination. The high-contrast world that was composed only added to the hell that these soldiers endured.


Rhythm Analysis: A document created by the designer that analyses scene length, entrances and exits of characters, and the initial emotional response. Notes relating to lighting may also be present, as well as quotes of evocative language the designer detailing their first reactions to the script. The emotional charting of the show also takes place on this document, sometimes referred to as a “fever” chart.
