I forgot something - you'll just have to imagine it

I forgot something – you’ll just have to imagine it.  When the vicar does an arc onto the stage on his bike I thought it’d sound good to have a bike bell on the soundtrack.  I heard it once on a TV show with puppets, I can’t remember the name but I was the target audience.  They made a joke about Walter Raleigh and a bike bell rang. It’s my sort of humour and that little thing has stuck with me. I liked the sound.  Anyway - I forgot to do it so you’ll just have to imagine it.  I reckon it’s good to leave a few things not done.  It means you can get going onto the next thing before the paint dries and you can still smell the fumes. Ugh, I was thinking about the varnish I didn’t want to use but had to.  It ate the surface off my work and for the first time in the while project I felt sick – because I should have said “no” one more time than I did.  I needed an adult to help me.  Belinda couldn’t comment but her eyes twinkled for me and I got the message and felt better and went home.  Where was I?  Eat more salad and go easy on the coffee.

my other light princess video diaries

here are parts three and four of my Light Princess video diaries:

I didn't make any more after part four . . . I did film myself a little more after this, but a lot of the animation-work we had done got cut because of script changes so I sounded a bit depressed and it wouldn't be much fun to watch me sitting on the roof of the National Theatre in the rain telling you that.  And then I stopped filming the video diaries completely as we kept up with the changes to the work during all the previews . . . it's tricky making animations for live theatre, I guess it would be fun to do again sometime, but it takes up a lot of your energy trying to remain nice.
