Act 2, Scenes 2 and 3. That's Mattie and our director, Thomas in the above photo.
Refreshed our memories with a read through and then got up on our feet. Everyone is getting into the cabin in the woods feel in this act. Decided we want to split the stage, with half being the living room and half being the kitchen. We'll use lighting to direct the audience to the action. I like the idea; side characters can act on stage in the darkened half of scene as the main action occurs.
Have not managed to split into multiple woman yet, so the only shots I'm in are on the video camera. I set it up and just hoped we stayed in screen. Editing vid is a big job, but I'm looking forward to releasing some of our bloopers!
And we already have a few running gags. Ted! Ted! Ted! Ted! is a biggie, as is No, you wait just a minute! I know Act 2 is gonna be the rough housing between the brothers. The back slap Mattie (as Ross) delivers is very real. Poor Gary!
