showing aesthetics, the 'art' of the design,
there are certain advantages.
Demonstrating aspects of the set seems to be
acheived more effectively. Cast members were
given an AV fly-around run-through of the show
with none of those 'can't-see' concerns when
huddled around a model box.
Images can be given to actors as constant
reference. If they download the free
Google-Sketchup, they can use the fly-around
3D files too. This helps them to more fully
