What We Did Today

Today was a low-key day, or as low-key as camp can get! We filmed a few scenes, using Zoom to film multiple angles at one time. Our “Tech Czar” Aaron is awesome, and they are really helping us figure out how best to capture the campers’ amazing work on screen!


Quick And Quotable

  • From the Play: “MARULLUS: Why dost thou lead these men about the streets?

    COBBLER: Truly, sir, to wear out their shoes.”

  • From the Director: “Hey Leylah, is your kazoo handy?”
  • From the Cast: “Decius Bruter” -Alex


Production Insights

As difficult as Zoom has been to coordinate, it has also been out best tool. We had people filming at three different angles today at the same time from three computers, so that we had footage of each actor in the scene. But the best part is that they are all the same audio, streamlining the editing process in a way that should help Aaron out when they edit our productions together! I’m excited to see each camper’s work up-close and personal, or as personal as it can get over Zoom.
