Week Five: We're Still Alive

The nature of theatre is collaborative, which means that everyone must work together for the final product to bloom. Due to this collaborative nature, some crews must finish their work before another can begin theirs. Videography, scenic painting, and Beast construction are three crews that started ramping up their efforts in week five.

Tristan Yi, crew chief of videography for Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere, began work on videography for the show. He has about fifteen major videography effects that have to be filmed, created, and/or edited to fit the show. Videography is a tedious project and Tristan has about two weeks to get it all done. Luckily, he is no longer alone: two people joined his crew this week to aid in the show’s videographic endeavours. Based on what I’ve seen, the videography will no doubt add an exhilarating touch to an already exciting show.

Emma Lister, the scenic painting crew chief, was very excited to start painting the set this past week. She finally got to start to paint the flats for The Secret in the Wings set, and this week she will be working on more detailed scenic painting for both shows. Emma was also a member of the Beast crew this past week.

Wait. Beast? What is this “Beast” I speak of? The Beast is an enormous boar-like puppet designed by Beast construction crew chief Olivia Thiel, built by her and other members of her crew. The puppet will be operated by members of the ensemble in Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere. Olivia finished the head of the Beast this week, and is thrilled to finish the rest of the body. We can’t wait for you to see our beastly creations!
