Carlota

I am a Freelance Set Dresser and Prop Maker/Buyer who has a great passion for the use of aesthetics, narrative and colour in any aspect of Design. Through my work I constantly strive to create surreal and immersive worlds and enjoy bringing them to life in Events, Fashion, Film or Theatre. With a background in Set Design my work is often playful and surrealist. I have experience with a wide variety of practical skills such as Production Design, Prop Making & Sourcing/Buying, Scenic Painting, Costume Sourcing, Set Dressing, Sewing and Basic Set Building. My experience in different areas of Performance such as Film, Theatre, Editorial and Site Specific Events alongside my completed BA (Hons) Degree in Costume with Performance Design at the Arts University Bournemouth has allowed me to understand the nature of set design’s challenges in large scale and ambitious productions. Moreover, I am accustomed to working at professional standards of quality, health and safety, specific briefs, time management as well as adapting to tight budgets and deadlines. I am confident working with a wide variety of materials and techniques and I consider myself to be very meticulous with detail as well as a highly organised individual. Apart from having a great drive for my practice I have an eagerness to keep learning new skills and approaches within the industry and I thrive when working in a team and collaborating with other people’s visions and opinions. I also consider myself to have good leadership skills when needed. I am committed to bring to work a strong dedication and an enthusiasm, as well as an easy-going, creative and dynamic personality.
