Inside the Santa Fe Opera Scene Shop

BY JORDAN EDDY via www.themagsantafe.com “They’ll say, ‘Why won’t it just float there?’” Scott Schreck says with a little smirk. “Then I go, ‘I’ll tell you what, let me work on that antigravity device for you.’” He’s talking through the joys and difficulties of translating artistic visions to brick and mortar, his principal mission as technical director of the Santa Fe Opera. Moments later, Schreck reveals that he may, in fact, possess gravity-defying powers. In his last job, a five-and-a-half-year stint as technical director of Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., one production called for a full bandstand to hover above the stage. “It was [Rodgers and Hammerstein’s] Carousel. They wanted a gazebo on top of a platform, with two bridges extending from it so the actors could walk across,” he sa...

All four delivered these “vision statements” as speeches to fellow leaders assembled for an artistic directors summit on Friday, June 14. They are published here with their permission. Modeling a Better World Howard Shalwitz, artistic director, Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company. The theatre is a utopian enterprise that impacts our world by modeling a world that is better.

The Challenges of Designing Costumes for HDTV

via thecostumerag.com You only need to take a look in your local department store to see the immense size and quality of modern television screens aimed at the common family.

Besides more intense scrutiny for details, the new technology requires intense lighting that can easily bleach out much of the costume work. Colours have to be bold, which also meansweathering and ageing effects have to be exaggerated. I...
