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.
I have founded interesting blog for Indie filmmakers. The blog provides information about camera work, sound design and light set up. There is a lot of tips and interesting articles even after effect tutorials, that I could use to create opening title.
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.
I am sorry I know you are very busy, I just wonder if you got my other e mail address? I never got any answer so I am not sure if e mail was delivered to you. I thought about question I would like to ask. So simply:
What stage manager does?
What is bundle room used for?
What other places involved in show audience can’t see?
Most famous shows or people you were working with?
I guess that question refers to your work. If you have any suggestion please let me know.
I have visited related to Edinburgh Playhouse. Slowly building the script up.First draft of the script is almost done. I am going to work on it today.
Waiting for respond ;/ I have noticed that waiting is the hardest part of every project I do. Can’t really move forward without confirmation of the shooting dates.
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.
