We are going to Flash Drives instead of DVDs, and have finally found flash drives that we can copy protect, yet allow teachers to print up the Resource Sheets. This has set us back in our schedule, but we should have the new Flash Drives available by the end of October. We asked teachers at different conferences if they'd prefer F;lash Drives, and the response was 100% in fovore of the Flash Drives. Resolution will be better than DVDs, and many schools don't have disc drives in their computers anymore.
In addition to freshening up the original program, new sections will include Using Projections, 3-D Set Design Rendering, 2 interviews with USA 829 Scenic Designers, including plans and footage of the finished set, Production Concept and the Design Process including Designing Period Sets. (Anticipated Roll-Out Date, late Octorber, 2018)
