NSDF '06 Roundup!

I've just got back from a week in Scarborough, at the National Student Drama Festival. Here's what happened!

1. Opening Ceremony
2. The sea! I love the sea: it's so big and noisy.
3. Writer/Director wunderkind Al "The Word" Smith tests a costume for our show.
4. Cupid in the Spa Bar.
5. Sun bathing.
6. Al "The Word" Smith, probably devising some more multi-award winning theatre.
7. I was awarded an egg! An egg! Wooooooooo!
8. A final breakfast at the wonderful Cat's Whiskers cafe.

Okay, so that doesn't really explain anything. There'll be stuff up over at Kandinsky and notlikecalvin at some point soonish. Meanwhile, there's some Flickr.

Two things here:
1) What does that actually mean?
2) What? What?

Right: that's that over with. Hurray!

1: The beach (note how the not-in-the-right-place-because-its-a-modelbox light source is too far from the skycloth, causing hard shadow at the sides. Bah.)

2: The house, or some of it at least (note how there's only one window instead of three, since there wasn't enough equipment. Grr.)

3: The shop (note how there's a bunch of extra spill from the opposite lantern on each side, since these are 1:1 lanterns on a 1:50 model. Ho hum.)

My extremely minimal set is now in place. Just a rather large amount of paperwork to do, now, before my presentation on Thursday morning. Woo!

The Penny Dreadfuls in Glasgow

(viewed 1708 times)
The Penny Dreadfuls have just finished an exhausting four-different-shows-a-day run at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival (tragic website). They pretty much depend on my technical genius, so I've just got back from Scotchland and I'm quite tired.

1. Our beautiful venue, the Britannia Panopticon, is a not-yet-restored Victorian Music Hall. [Note the slot-machine arcade and bingo parlour on the ground floor.]

2. The Dreadfuls themselves: Handsome Dave, Humphrey the English Giant, Sir Thomas Tuck & The Notable Jamie Anderson.

3. Flagship show Aeneas Faversham in full swing: "The Clockwork Frog Sketch".

4. Putting up one of the massive posters: even Humphrey the English Giant has to be chair-assisted by The Notable Jamie Anderson. Someone called the cops on us, but they seemed okay with us a) having permission and b) sticking it to the side of our own venue. They didn't take a flyer, though.
