We are very excited to be working with our friends Cut Chorus on "Camera Test", a series of short monologue/duologue web films created as part of the research for their future production of "Romance". The project explores the way in which the atmosphere of a filmed story is affected by the manner in which it is filmed; which feeds in nicely to our own exploration of the interplay between live and recorded work.
We have just been allocated our script - a witty one-hander by Mark Murphy - and are busy throwing ideas back and forth. The monologue will be performed by Luke Harrison, a frequent .dash collaborator, who has worked with us on a number of projects, including "Chaika Casino" and the early development of "And Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out". Let the cameras roll.
In other news, Eoin and I are now moved into our new home in Margate, where we will be helping to run the Tom Thumb Theatre. After just over a week we have already met a whole host of interesting and interested folk, exciting artists and potential collaborators. Work is being programmed and plans are hatching: please do not hesitate to get in touch with your thoughts and ideas.
The photo: I left the .dash mirror ball (from "And Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out") in my parents' house in Brighton. My mum was telling me that at a certain point every afternoon it fills the room with stars. I demanded evidence, this is it.
