Meeting went okay [Jan. 5th, 2009|09:34 pm]
Madison's Velvet Darkness Cast

Just three of us on cast were there, but it was a good three. Also present were the theatre owner and my daughter. We walked around and measured some space and got some ideas for blocking. Hard part for me is letting go of older ideas about how the Majestic used to be. I keep thinking we used to do this, and realizing the reason we did something, usually a space issue, no longer applies.

We are looking at a functional space of about 16'x16' with variable margins and wings on all sides. We will have access to the house lighting system. The movie itself will be on a small video projector screen above the stage. This will put the performance area at eye level to the whole theatre (instead of hidden behind a row of chairs), with live performers that are bigger than what is on the screen. It also means everyone needs to know their part ridiculously well, as we won't have the fallback of sideways glancing at the screen to resync. This means everybody must review the movie as often as possible between now and the show. Know your part. I will also be trying to know all your parts so I can cue you if you lose your place.

This really could be our best show yet, as long as nothing goes horribly horribly wrong . . .

Meeting update [Jan. 2nd, 2009|06:26 pm]

For those on cast who can make it, we will meet at the theatre on Monday, Jan 5, at approx 6PM.

Measuring and picture taking will happen. Blocking and layout will be started on. Aimless drifting around may be indulged. Plans will happen. No meetings are required at this time, however, this one could be cool.

As an aside to the fact that we're actually reuniting, the current mailing list for the cast is http://groups.google.com/group/velvetdarkness

Feel free to sign up. I don't have access to the former list, so I'm doing something new.

We really are doing it! [Dec. 12th, 2008|01:08 pm]

Rocky will be returning for a one night event at the Majestic Theatre on Friday, January 16th.
Depending on the success of this event, future plans are in the works to make it a regular show again. Some specifics are still in motion. The theatre owner wants to turn it into sort of a party event. Doors will open around 9pm with an open bar, with preshow ritual later and the movie starting at around midnight.

I believe we have the minimum cast necessary, but I am still interested in bringing a few more bodies in. So if you have been waiting for you chance to break in on the Madison Rocky Horror scene, this could be your chance.

Tell your friends. Tell your enemies. Tell your friends' enemies. And watch out for more updates as the day approaches.

So, meeting tomorrow? [Dec. 5th, 2008|02:04 pm]

It passed through my mind that while I sent it out to the cast egroup, some people may not be on it, or paying any attention to it.

We will be trying to meet tomorrow, Saturday the 6th, at 9pm at Espresso Royale, at the top of State near the Orph. And there is possibility of doing some large prop moving afterward.

If you can't make it, but want to, email me and tell me about it.

Send More Cast Members [Nov. 19th, 2008|08:00 am]

I am looking to confirm a body count. Do we have people enough to go forward? Do I need to recruit? I'm assuming I need to recruit, as some people have moved away, but how many? I would prefer to not snub people with history who are interested.

I do have one new person, someone I'm confident will ad to the cast tremendously. I will let her introduce herself at the next(first?) meeting.

The theatre owner has basically told me the ball is in my lap. So when I think we are ready, we will move. Thoughts? Suggestions? Please.

Group Masturbation on Gorham Street [Nov. 2nd, 2008|10:34 am]

If we are to hold it true that it just isn't the real thing unless its in a theatre, and that watching it on video is masturbation, then what we did last night at Freakfest was massive scale group masturbation with a giant inflatable object.Collapse )

Now, back to what I was saying [Nov. 1st, 2008|09:57 am]

This is the second part of a two part entry. The first part is my own personal business, so you can skip it if you don't feel like reading my personal shit. It may provide perspective why this is so much to handle right now.
And why I need some volunteersCollapse )
