After wee chat with Mr Wade I realized there is no traps in the Playhouse. The trap I saw in Lion King show was attached to the stage that was brought by Lion King crew. They don’t only bring their customs or props to different theater they also have they own stage that they carry from one venue to another. There won’t be much magic though. Still there is plenty of hidden rooms in Playhouse. I consider changing working title to Behind the Scenes.
Really good website about the Playhouse and other Scottish cinemas. I have found it very useful for historic the background of my documentary. There are information about the building since it was open until almost present day. Website also gives many information about architecture of the building and shows how usage of the building has changed over the years. Definitely going to use information posted on there.
Finally I have got filming confirmed. It is happening on 14.02.2014 Friday, Valentines day. Looks like I am going to have small love affair with the theater. I am organizing my crew. I have already text Luke and Betsy. Hopefully they are not busy that day.
I wasn’t sure about filming just because Playhouse is running shows all of the time so I kept my crew on hold. We are not allowed to film while show is on, all of them are copyrighted. Theater has to be empty to film in.
I was worry because I haven not received any answers for my e mails from Mr.Wade. I decided to call him and he said we can film on Friday as it was agreed before.
Chasing my expert,
I never got answer for last e mail so decided to remind myself. As I don’t want him to feel harassed I came up with possible question for the interview.
Rcahms is incredible source of knowledge. Books, photos and maps archive in the rcahm will be visual base of the historical background of my documentary. I founded photos and some videos of Playhouse. All of that is digitalis, just to make it easier to use.They have got current photos as well. I will go back there next week to do some more research and purchase the one I like.
I meet the Playhouse stage manager on Friday. He is a really nice guy. He shown me backstage and bundle room below the stage. There is a plenty of great shot possibilities. Playhouse is a theater but looks very cinematographic. I already have idea how I want it to be filmed. I am just about to open celtx and start the script, first scratch.
I decided to use a presenter . I spoke with Luke already he said yes. One problem less.
Mr Wade is unfortunately very busy man and I am waiting for him to confirm the date of shooting. Hopefully soon.
I am going to focus on research and script now. I am going to sort out the music and archives materials.
