Last Thursday the workshop participants were presented with two scenarios.The first was equivalent to an early run through in which the actors and director were still exploring the different ways of inteperting a scene. This was conducted in the bland, flat, featureless environment of the white rehearsal room, where it all too easy to get the exposure completely wrong.
The second scenario was a full on dress rehearsal that had been reproduced in the CAPITAL Studio, with a brilliantly re-created lighting set up , courtesy of Elliot Griggs, TechCrew president. This rehearsal was visually much more interesting but with its very own exposure problems, not to mention the logistical issues of moving around in a very dark space.
My thanks are extended to Elliot, Clem, Ollie and to all the actors who gave up their time to reprise their roles from the recent WUDS weekend, not once but three times.
The participants' images from these scenarios appear in the associated gallery, and I hope their subjective take on the two scenarios will be recorded here.
