Here is a bit of background on the performance that you may find interesting about the video...
It was performed and "filmed" in one take. No rehearsals. No edits.
Steve Wright whistled and played the ukulele for the duration without a drink!
Sandy Buck and Rolf Reynolds handled the puppets.
The light for the shadow performance was the flashlight mode on an iPhone.
The filming location was the electric scooter charging room at Christenson Village. Thank you to all the residents who relocated their scooters for the weekend.
This video section was part of an 8 minute film that looped for the weekend sharing with the public what went on for the 2 weeks of production leading up to the crawl.
It was a wonderful experience watching the video because it felt like you were watching a live performance every time. One resident held the record for watching it about 37 times! She felt it was pure magic.
As you heard in the webinar yesterday, we narrowed down over 100 stories to 4 for inspiration. The shadow performance is a blend of characters from 3 of those stories. The stories...
"Goosey Gander, Where Shall I Wander?"
"The Eye Spy Guys"
Special Thanks to Joah Lui for capturing this wonderful performance.
