At its core, The Lightning Thief is a story about a boy trying to find his place in the world. Percy Jackson discovers he is the half-blood son of a Greek God and ends up at a summer camp made half-bloods just like him. When Zeus' lightning bolt is stolen, Percy is the prime suspect due to his heritage and must go on a cross country adventure to prove his innocence and stop a war between the Gods.
For this production, it was very inspired by graffiti and paint splatter between all the areas of design. We wanted it to be a mix of both modern and classic styles, almost as a clash between the old Greek Gods and the new half-bloods. This is what drove me to be inspired by "aural graffiti" and explore what that could possibly mean. My design was used to support the show in both creative and structural ways. Some moments were simple sound effects that placed us in a location, and others were used to portray a monster attacking the heroes.
