Brooklynn Bitner is a designer in multiple meanings of the word. She originally set out to develop her knack for graphic design, which she continues to develop amongst her other pursuits. Near the end of her BA in Studio Art, she stumbled across the University of Saskatchewan Drama Design program, and instantly fell in love. With a passion for bringing technology and the spectacle of film to a live stage, Brooklynn wants to wow audiences with transformative, evolving, and dynamic designs that make the audience question their perception of reality. Set, Costume, and Sound Design are her fortes, but she dabbles in projection and lighting design as well. Well versed in anything from photo manipulation to video editing, Brooklynn has the digital skill set to bring theatre into the modern age of innovation.
