FINISHING
STAGE AND SCREEN
Dave Benson, British Designer, scenic creator currently working in the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Scenic design, construction and scale model making for theatre, television and film, sculpture and 3d artist. Having had over 25 years experience in theatre and television scenography, property and creative departments in the industry, I believe I am an ideal candidate to bring out the best possible visual elements of your production, no matter what the budget and venue requirements, limitations and scale.

During this time I have also taught scenic design, props making and stage management to degree level students.

I have designed and produced scenery for many European première productions which were varied in scale and financial constraints. From my reviews over the years, it seems that the productions I have worked on have satisfied my clients' needs and lived up to and even heightened their reputations.

My European première productions include Let snů LILI, Titanic (the musical), Threads, Mladý Frankenstein (Young Frankenstein), Muj romantický príbeh (My romantic History) and Bohéma 1914 - Zima, Jaro (based on La Bohème - Puccini)
