Cardboard is Not a Byproduct

Design Meeting #2 (9/18)

I am very behind in writing these blog posts, but I promise they will come. Eventually.

The second design meeting was less of a meeting and more of a hang-out; the fact that all of us were sitting in very squashy and comfortable sofas for the duration probably didn’t help the fact. In any case, it’s devised right? No need for anything concrete yet…

One highlight of this meeting was that I got to meet our costume designer, I, for the first time! I think she was a little overwhelmed by the craziness of the group around her, but she seems like a sweet person.

I probably should have cut the meeting short when they started discussing sex sounds in all their capacities, including:
-recording people in the room over
-recording in the same room
-recording people just making sex noises
-doing foley work with some pieces of meat

In any case, who knows what the next design meeting will look like.

First Meeting

Today, the director (T) and the writer (L), set up a lunch meeting with me and the designers to talk about what the show might look like. Everything is so up in the air at the moment though, that it turned into more of a look at what working with this crazy bunch is going to be like.

The theses writers:
L: No, I definitely want a linear narrative.T: It could have time travel!
This very accurately sums up both of these gals.

Can you make an audience play spin the bottle? Can you make your actors play spin the bottle? Before every rehearsal? The point was then brought up that if you share germs early, then they hopefully won’t get sick closer to the performance.

I stopped taking notes way before they stopped talking.
