that's an easy answer: when she finds her throughline.
very happy to have discovered the inciting incident of my story - which gives my central character a throughline + motivation, and my pivotal character/antagonist a reason to be in the story besides looking like a 21st century samurai pimp.
this particular study needs a lot of technical development, but i have mastered a major hurdle in developing TYFTB (thank you from…Continue

as we all know, art is a lot of hard work. it took me 5 hours to do all the things i needed to shoot short entreactes for my new live-action storyboard TYFTB. there is a character, either fantastical or supernatural TBD, who haunts the hallway in the middle of the night at a mental hospital - the setting of the movie.
i used to be a sculptor. some of my wood figures were so big that i would work on one side all day and i would have to wait…Continue

commitment. the word that came to mind when i started watching this Kool: Dancing in My Mind, Robert Wilson's homage to Japanese dancer and choreographer, Suzushi Hanayagi. it also came to mind what the best people who have taught me all said - when you move, move like you mean it and know why you mean it and where you came from.

my specialty as a solo theatre artist was mimickry, morphing from one character into another. the first scene i ever did this in took place between a young woman, her mother, her grandmother and her stepfather who were having an argument - and it happened in a kitchen. ever after, i called my multiple character scenes "kitchen scenes." having painted half my kitchen Chroma Green, i am still doing kitchen scenes.

i think i am going to have to do a lot of these, most of which will likely be mostly backstory and have to be thrown out. this creature believes the Universe is collapsing and she needs to escape into a black hole. this monologue would occur after she was hospitalized. in this scene, she has been put into a saferoom by herself to settle her down.…Continue
