VectorWorks Spotlight Used to Design Sets
The industry standard in entertainment and lighting design software plays leading role in 21st James Bond movie
Columbia, Maryland (December 5, 2005)Nemetschek North America announced today that VectorWorks Spotlight 12 will be used to assist in designing the sets for the new James Bond film, CASINO ROYALE.
“VectorWorks Spotlight has become an invaluable application within the art department throughout the design and drafting stage of preparation on CASINO ROYALE,” says Steven Lawrence, CASINO ROYALE art director. “The 2D drafting side of VectorWorks Spotlight alone allows us to increase workflow and flexibility in all areas of set development. However, with increased use of VectorWorks’ 3D tools, our capabilities have expanded dramatically, allowing us to enter areas previously unavailable. In addition, the implementation of 3D allows for much easier communication and understanding of the set layout for the other departments working on the film.”
Lawrence continues, “I have been using VectorWorks Spotlight professionally for almost three years, and I now use it to approach every aspect of the set design/drafting process. With the extensive tools available within the new Design Series, I am now able to deal simply with aspects of set design that before would have been either too time consuming or not available. In my opinion, VectorWorks looks likely to become the art department standard in the UK film industry.”
The standard in entertainment and lighting design software, VectorWorks Spotlight merges sophisticated 2D drafting and powerful 3D modeling with advanced lighting design and production tools. VectorWorks Spotlight is used by scene and set designers worldwide to design sets for TV shows, major motion pictures, Broadway musicals, and more. Lighting designers worldwide use VectorWorks Spotlight to design lighting for theatrical events, live concerts, corporate functions, museum exhibits, and more.
Produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli (EON Productions) and directed by Martin Campbell, CASINO ROYALE is scheduled for release November 17, 2006. Principal photography will start on January 30, 2006, with locations in the UK, Czech Republic, Italy, and the Bahamas. It will be British actor Daniel Craig’s first outing as James Bond. He is the sixth actor to play the role in the legendary franchise.
