- Create an audition form.
- Figure out how much more script to cut (yet to cut it).
- Get venues sorted out.
- Read some more of Thinking Like A Director.
- Watch the film version and listen to the commentary.
- Visit Mark to discuss lighting requirements.
All this preparation culminated in a long, yet useful production meeting. It is very nice to know that I have the support of a team of people (removed from the current political problems within the group). Costuming and staging are beyond me, but now that we've discussed it, I understand what's possible.
The weekend ended with a personal setback: my past coming back to haunt me. Being innocent is a small comfort; avoiding such misunderstandings (or handling them better) would be a greater comfort. Yet to see how this pans out in reality and affects relationships.
Still, two steps forward, one step back. On balance, I feel like I've achieved something this weekend, which is more than I can usually claim. Could this be the start of a good year ahead?
No dwelling on negative stuff - that's for pessimists. ;-)
