Saint Punch is over

I’ve just finished Saint Punch, and I was an extra in a short film.

This has been one of those periods where I’m too busy to keep the blog up-to-date.

I’ve just finished ‘Saint Punch‘, my friend Gregor’s Masters project. It is an intertextual play with puppetry, Comedia Dell’Arte Carnivale stage work, and live mixed green screen. The story has 3 vignettes: Gilles de Rey and Jeanne D’Arc (Joan of Arc); Bluebeard and Judith; Punch and Judy. The 4 performances were from Wednesday 08 to Saturday 11 June at Old Drama House, 93 KP.

I was doing the Sound Design for the play. It was my first experience doing tech for theatre. I’m sure most sound designers for plays don’t get into it as organically as I did, as I was involved from Gregor’s first workshop. For that I am extremely thankful.

It was lovely working with the cast and crew. I’ll see if I can pilfer some photos to put up here.

On another note, I was an extra in a short film this weekend: ‘Lovebloom’, directed by Daniel Gonzalez. I got to be a party-goer. I must admit I’ve only read the first 10 pages of the script, so I’m really looking forward to the final product.

Right, enough of that. I’ve got to get to the Victoria 300-level FILM Production screening this evening, where my friend Amy’s film is being screened.

My friend, Gregor, is doing a performance thing for his Masters, and is looking for participants.

He’s looking for theatrical collaborators to take part in workshops. The first workshop is next weekend.
