Ok this blog post is a ****** little *******. So much so that I can't even score out that last phrase to pretend that I'm not a sweary lunatic or at least give the impression of remorse about the sweary lunacy. Yes, I could delete it, but I'm not going to. ****** little ******* covers my feelings on this post too well. Besides Gerald says reassuring things about the website having an "authentic voice" so blame him. But not really, he's lovely. No blaming Gerald.
(Blame Gerald for the asterisks, Gerald sucks.) (Borderline? Me?)
I have tried to write this post a number of times and keep losing the text. Fortunately the pictures and captions above have remained. The fault is mostly mine but I'm still cross with the blog post as an entity with an agenda to screw with me. Crazy people eh? What can you do?
I did start it aaages ago but things have happened. Big things, little things, my mouse has just stopped working for no reason things. Y'know: stuff. I could lie and tell you that this is a month late because I was off guruing in northern Tibet but I don't think you'd swallow it. Life got in the way of keeping this up to date. Sorry. It will probably happen again. My reliability is...variable. See above re: Crazy people.
Ooh look, my mouse is back. Nice.
On to what this blog was meant to be about:
We had one on the 1st and one on the 8th of May and they were amazing. Even more amazing we now have our own official photographer: Iain Griffith-Jones. He was with us for the first one workshop and after terrorising those of us that were up for head shots with scary "Oh wait, we're done already? That wasn't so bad" photo shoots (seriously, they took seconds:; this guy is amazing), he unobtrusively ninjaed around and took some action shots and few arty ones too.
See what he did there? Clever
Since I started writing this beleaguered post (actually I think it was beleaguering me but maybe there was mutual beleaguering, maybe.) the 'Nuts have celebrated our third birthday and been working away on "Little Cuts". We think we may even have got the first draught finished! We were somewhat surprised. The past few weeks we've been going back over the first few scenes, refining, exploring and generally examining the minutiae of plot and character. This is a labourious stage of the process but essential to producing a finished work of which we can all be proud. We've got a scratch performance scheduled for September where we will show wherever we have got to and receive feedback.
We've also organised business cards and flyers and got the poster for Little Cuts professionally printed and they look a bit good
Huge thanks to Lyanne for the design work and print mastery.
