I love creative problem solving.
That's a very good thing because this play is giving me a lot to think about. The general idea is easy: hold auditions, rehearse, perform.
Then I started to think through the many little things that need to happen. I started thinking music, scenery, forms, locations, etc. And within each of those details, there are more details. I looked up information on music I could use. Any music written before 1922 is free domain. Great! However, recordings of music are protected and can not be used without going through legal stuff. That means I can choose any song pre-1922 and have a friend record it and then it is OK for use. An interesting detail that I didn't know.
I started pricing materials for scenery. I should probably buy stuff soon so I can see if my ideas will even work. It it going to cost some money, so I'm going to use a little as possible and make it work in a big way. I think paint is going to be my single most expensive thing. Remember the Forest Hint I showed a week ago? That is the concept art for some of the scenery. (I know, I'm a terrible artist.) I'll be using a green sheet for a background and trees made out of polystyrene.
I wrote up a TO DO list with everything I could think of and then as I started working on it, I realized there are more details to add that I just hadn't thought of before.
I'm having a great time!
