Social Structures

Lots of stuff exists that didn’t exist before but there’s still plenty to do.

Here’s how my apartment looked this morning:

Lots of character and scene parts filling my apartment

All the grave markers have mud and primer and are ready for final show paint (and sealing and fireproofing). The skeletons are mudded but I won’t prime them until they’re all permanently attached to their stands—that happens this weekend. The ghosts have mud but I want to sand them before priming. The vertical portions of the tomb arches are each half-covered in mud; the horizontal parts, as well as all of the parts of the mausoleum (which Zander built over the last couple days!) still need a layer of wheatpaste before they’re mudded. That will also happen this weekend.

I submitted Graveyard Swing to a bunch of places this week: Time Out New York, The Village Voice, and the Everything Immersive community, which is lovely.

Also, we’re going to try posting to Instagram more regularly. I created this account last year but Zander and I both logged in for the first time a couple days ago. It turns out that the Instagram app has really nice support for managing multiple accounts! You should follow @variablestage on Instagram. I captured the work that lead to the above photo in a timelapse and posted it there! It was fun. My hands are still speckled with primer.

The show opens in two weeks. There’s still a lot to do. It’s gonna happen, and it’s gonna be great, but your boy is very nervous right now.
