“You Can Thank Me for the Buttons” from Kaylyn Kilkuskie

Oct 4th, 2012

Buttons
At the start of a meeting I had last week with a director I was graced with the general pleasantry of “what have you been working on?” I had been working on an unrelated show at the time which lead to a question I had not expected. “Well, what can I thank you for?”

"A Pocket-Sized Enchanted Carriage" from Tatiana Kuilanoff

Oct 4th, 2012

Model of Cinderella's carriage.
When it comes to model making, rules and guidelines are virtually nonexistent. Yes, books are sold giving tips and advice on how to construct a “realistic” looking brick wall or a standard dining chair in a variety of scales and sizes…but sometimes these instruction manuals don’t provide all the answers.

I’m stage managing the FAIRplay project. What’s FAIRplay you might ask? Well, all of us interns, assistants and fellows are putting on a fully realized, fully produced play in two weeks. Impossible, you say? Not at all! Crazy, you say? Quite possibly.

"The Things You Won't Ever See" from Julia Welch

Oct 1st, 2012

What I’m enjoying most about working in the scene shop are small projects that require some sort of creative problem solving. I like being given a task and told to figure out how to best create the piece. The first one I did was an arched piece to be added on top of the Animal Crackers portal.
