Assessment Brief:
Length: 1600 words.
Assessment 3 Staging report, builds upon the work you completed in assessments 1 and 2. At its core the staging report is there to assist you in the final stage of the design process, preparing for the preliminary staging (or otherwise known as the implementation) planning process.
Building upon the material submitted in assignment 1 & 2, this report should detail and explain (at a minimum) the following:
Lighting, sound, video and SFX design brief (50-100 words):
• In broad terms the lighting, sound, video and SFX design brief should detail the outcomes in such a manner that the lighting, sound and SFX technicians can interpret and implement the instructions. That is the brief should describe what affects are desired not the equipment required to achieve it.
• EG. As this will be a beach wedding during the day there shouldn’t be any real lighting requirements for the ceremony, unless the photographer advises otherwise. However, as beaches can be windy a sound system of microphones, small mixing desk and speakers will be required for all guests to be able to enjoy the ceremony. The specific equipment should be suitable for use outdoors, in sand, wind and water. There will be no other special effects requirements at the ceremony. (79 words)
Performers, talent and entertainment brief (50-100 words):
• As above, in broad terms detail any performers, talent or entertainment outcomes
• Entertainment is all of the things the guests are going to be doing during the event. This might include partying, dancing, drinking etc.
• EG. The wedding ceremony will require the services of a MC to assist with the welcoming, ushering and coordination of marshalling and seating guests, introducing the ceremony, warming up the guests and closing the official ceremony proceedings. In addition a civil celebrant and professional wedding photographer will be required. A registered early childhood assistant should be considered so that a separate children’s section can be created a discrete distance away from the main wedding ceremony, where children can be entertained and cared for but still part of the ceremony. Later at the reception guests will be entertained by speeches, socialising, drinking and dancing. (102 words)
Event staff roles and responsibilities brief (100-200 words):
Staff roles should describe both the event staff and any venue staff who might be required over and above entertainment requirements.
Skills and Resources matrices:
Develop a matrix of required or anticipated resources and skills (one matrix for each), which
might include (where applicable):
• Lighting, sound, and effects
• Décor, decorative, scenic, set and prop
• Venue
• Food and beverage
• Talent and entertainment
• Permits and licences
• Transport, storage and logistics
• Workplace Health and Safety, and risk
• Contractors and vendors
• Backline assumptions
• Software
You should critically think about what you need in regards to resources and skills, and provide a detailed description and reasoning as to why. Ask yourself questions like:
• Are they available and easy to procure?
o Seasonal? Expensive? Abundant or limited supply?
• How long might it take to obtain what you need?
• How long is its shelf life?
• Where can you store it before and after the event?
• Have you made any backline assumptions, and if so, what are they?
A detailed plan or run sheet, in its (anticipated) final form, (800 words)
• This run sheet should include times, roles and resources.
• It should highlight milestones, or critical events in the programme o Critical = must happen for the event to go ahead o Milestones = important
• It should essentially be an add-on to the run sheet you developed in Assignment 2.
• EG. Wedding Ceremony Run Sheet version 3 (pink).
o Milestones in yellow and critical events highlighted in red
And so on and so forth for the rest of the event. You could do this in list form, or matrix form as you see fit.
