Lighting the Set


It’s 9.30am.

 

WISBECH BUS STATION, THE HORSEFAIR.

 

‘The Only Star In Heaven’ – Frankie Goes To Hollywood



 

IT’S A LOW DOWN + MOODY SITUATION!

 

Still haven’t sent Flash’s card!  COULDN’T AFFORD THE STAMP – NOR CAN I TODAY!

 

SORRY, FLASH.

 

HONGANING!!!

 

DOCTOR WHO

IS THE EMPEROR DALEK ACTUALLY DAVROS – SHOCK?

IS THE DOCTOR REALLY FROM EARTH – SHOCK?

These are the current rumours.

 

RITCHERD + JUSTINE AGAIN?!

 

IT SEEMS SO…

 

Later:

 

‘A Black Box/Slow Time’ – Peter Hammill



 

Today, the piping + branches were put on the scaffold tower to create the feel of an overgrown battlement (but with an industrial, post-apocalyptic edge).  The cage structure – here to represent the castle dungeons – was also dressed in foliage.

 

The effectiveness of the set relies in great part on the skill of the Lighting Team and they do a great job, making it look extremely effective.

 

Justine was away TODAY, which buggered me off.  It made me feel depressed.  I really wanted to see her.
