Blocking in a eco-friendly digital process

We've moved on from our music rehearsals to blocking and the cast is starting to endure the gotchas of a digital process. Everyone was used to marking up paper scripts the traditional way, but we wanted to embrace Planet Connections emphasis on being eco-friendly. It's amazing how much paper is wasted mounting a musical


Thomas has been using their phones, while Jessie uses a laptop. Brandon and April are using tablets, but one is an Apple iPad and one is a Microsoft Surface device. There are a plethora of applications that support markup on the electronic scripts, but synchronizing with the most up-to-date script on our shared Google drive has been challenging.

Our New York City Base Camp

We were so lucky to find an apartment a block from the Teatro LATEA theater. It has several floors and there's a rooftop garden that we may actually be able to see the theater from. Google maps has a neat 3D function that let's you view the area from a lot of different angles and perspectives. Here's a couple of static screen capture images.

Here's the poster we're using for the festival

It's rather symbolic, an iPad with a broken screen, a sticky note with the tagline "Logout and Login to Life". It's multi-dimensional too! An iPad in an iPad with a photo of a person taking a picture of herself in a mirror with an iPhone.
