Kevin Lee Allen's Vectorworks for Entertainment Design: Using Vectorworks to Design and Document Scenery, Lighting, and Sound from Focal Press is tailored specifically to the entertainment professional. It covers the ins and outs of Vectorworks software for lighting, scenic, and sound design.

Taking a detailed look at the design process, from idea to development to the documentation necessary for execution, this book will encourage you to create your own process and workflow through exercises that build on one another. The text stresses the process of developing an idea, visualizing it, and evolving it for presentation, documentation, or drafting. The author focuses on both the technical how-to and the art of design, giving you the tools you need to learn and then use the application professionally. Fully illustrated with step-by-step instructions, Vectorworks for Entertainment Design contains inspirational work from Broadway, major regional companies, and non-theatrical entertainment designs.
