Papers are invited for Scene, the new journal from Intellect which explores all aspects of design contexts for live and recorded performance, giving special attention to the shaping of artistic vision, aesthetic sophistication, critical thinking and craft. Our remit covers the following: cinema, television, commercials, theatre, opera, musical, interior design, lighting design, costume design, theme parks, scenography, architecture, visual special effects, visual arts, virtual sets, multivision, location sets, games design and virtual environments, modes of spectating.
The journal incorporates investigations into the development of new technologies and modes of operating, distribution of content and profiles of design for film, television, theatre and events, as well as new platforms such as gaming and virtual environment design. We explore the understanding that the designer’s multifaceted contribution to a production involves much more than providing a visual background.
We also welcome reviews of new work, scholarship, criticism and exhibitions. We invite submissions of articles of 4,000-8,000 words from any discipline related to the topics outlined above.
Submissions are welcome from scholars and practitioners. Contributors are encouraged to approach design for entertainment from any discipline and to turn their attention to practices from all countries and in all languages.
