I was presented with an awesome opportunity. One of my friends is having his first play produced in Boston in a couple months. The play is very visual and will have images projected behind the actors in certain scenes throughout the play. I've been asked to be one of the contributing artists for this. There's no pay in it (yet), there's just no budget for it. That's fine with me for a couple reasons. 1. They're very good friends (his girlfriend was one of my bridesmaids) and 2. This play has the potential to be *seen*. Not just in Boston too. This play is being submitted to the NY Fringe Festival, which is like the Sundance of live theatre, and the director plans to also get it into the San Francisco, and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, as well. So, the artwork will be seen and credited.
I told them I would do it, of course. I may even make it to the opening in Boston. I'm very excited. Even if it doesn't make it as a hit, it will be wonderful to work on a creative project of this magnitude with my friends.
