Deep Down Cowboys (2011)

For 5-11 year olds. By Daniel Jamieson.

Set Model

Trina Bramman designed our set for Deep Down Cowboys and made the set model you can see on this page. Trina's design was inspired by pictures of the insides of Russian submarines. The set model is made to scale to help our set builders at TR2, Theatre Royal Plymouth’s production centre, make the real set out of steel, wood and canvas. Our set painters use the set model to tell them what colours they need and the effect that Trina is looking for. Trina also made the miniature figures you can see. Some theatre designers use ready-made figures on their set models but Trina has always made her own. She makes the figures out of wire first, then models them with flesh-coloured Fimo. She adds clothes made out of paper before painting the figures and attaching them to a penny to help them stand up.
