 CURRICULUM VITAE

D. Matthew Kizer    March 9, 2018

Professor of Theatre Design and Technology
Office:     MSC 37 • Plymouth State University • Plymouth,  NH 03264
mkizer@mail.plymouth.edu • (603)535-2385 • www.scenicandlighting.com
SUMMARY:  To serve as a designer on a theatrical production is to combine scholarly research, artistic vision, and collaborative communication, with strategic choices in technology, calendar planning, and leadership. Each production design represents a public presentation of collaborative work witnessed by hundreds or thousands of people.

Professor Kizer has served as a designer on behalf of the performing arts at Plymouth State University for over one-hundred twenty productions, including theatre, dance, and opera. These include working with teams of dozens of students serving in many capacities. The work includes large-scale painting, graphic work, rendering and model building, computer drafting and modeling, lighting, and cuing. It also includes the production and orchestration of projection media, even including the development of new technologies and methods.

Kizer has also served as a professional designer for over one-hundred fifty productions outside of Plymouth State. These include professional theatre and dance companies in the United States and Europe, and include notable venues such as the Pallazo della Sapienza in Rome, and the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.

Professor Kizer presents workshops and lectures on all aspects of his work, and has done so on behalf of organizations in Europe, Asia, and various universities or national organizations in the United States.

This work is documented in this curriculum vitae, along with other publications, exhibitions, and scholarly research.

TEACHING AREAS/INTERESTS:
Theatrical scenic design, lighting design, projections design and technology, sound design, stagecraft, drafting, computer-aided drafting and modeling, computer animation, web design, props, scene painting.
RESEARCH AREAS/INTERESTS:
Sustainable Theatre:   Examining the way in which the theatre industry works, specifically as it relates to my own areas of expertise.  This includes finding ways to reuse materials, reduce waste, and reduce use of electricity and expendable items in theatrical lighting.
Projections for the performing arts:   I have been pushing projection technology in my work since the mid nineties.  Old-school and cutting edge technologies combine to allow highly experimental methods of technology to be applied in environments and venues that might not ordinarily be expected to support such techniques.    This includes methods to have projection media respond to the movement or voice of performers.   This includes using banks of projectors working in unison through local networks of communication.   This includes designing media to work with scrims or mirrors  (18th century technology) to produce results that are a hybrid of digital and analog solutions.
Computer aided design and modeling: I have worked at developing a system of design wherein all components of the final package are generated on computer in an holistic manner.  The components of a scenic design package, for example, include a variety of types of drafting which detail the entire set and all of its components in scale with notes and measurements.  It includes frontal depictions of every piece of scenery in color, and it includes a three-dimensional depiction of the final product as intended.  By integrating a variety of methods and software, a photo-realistic rendering can be produced which can be automatically updated by changing a single detail in one part of the total package.
HTML based aids for teaching and production: Communication is the primary necessity for both of these aspects of theatre.  Hyper-text markup language is an invaluable tool in this respect.  I have developed web-based stage management aids, and advising tools for the Theatre program. I have used the Internet to post complete design packages, and have built HTML driven classroom aids.   I build and maintain resources for theatre and teaching online.
