AH! The inaugural post of what I *hope* becomes many more, especially as we get cooking here in the countdown to Seattle Fringe Festival - we are eagerly awaiting to hear our times and venue, and will post it and probably scream it all over town once we do know, because that's just the kind of excited we are to remount MythFest!
Towards that end, we have a shoot today for publicity photos, up at...I'm not really sure if it's a park, exactly, or a public area connected with the building next to it (which MAY be a church of some kind - will have to investigate further this evening) - but it's at the corner of 15th and Union up on Capitol Hill and - has four lovely, Greek-looking columns as well as some nice archways. And the weather has cooperated by becoming cloudy and much cooler, which bodes well for us delicate Seattle flowers who positively *wilt* when the temperature climbs above 80 (it has been in the mid-80's/90's for the past two weeks)! Especially since we will be wearing black.
I love "art directing" (if that's what you call it...) photo shoots for theatre - publicity photos aren't meant to be actual show photos, so you can have some fun with them. I'll also be designing the poster from what we get at this photo shoot so have to make sure we've got some great, evocative action shots!
Will elaborate more tomorrow on the shoot itself...
