Behind-the-Scenes "Of Being": February + March
My main goal for this first year out of college, was to have my own show- of both photography and dance.
AND GUESS WHAT- IT'S HAPPENING!
So here is where I'll be sharing the ins and outs, triumphs and failures, and huge messes and clean ups of me doing this whole thing.
This first Behind-the-Scenes is probably going to be boring, because well, the beginning is always boring, but I'm glad you're interested enough to keep reading to this point.
If you know me, you know I'm a crazy organized planner who worries over every possibility that can happen, and so therefore, I make lists, and try to stay prepped for anything. In which case, is why I've started prepping in January for a show that happens at the end of July.
The first thing(s) to do:
- Create a timeline of what needs to be done and when.
- Figure out what the heck this show is about.
So here is some messy little scribbles of what I have so far...
Yeah, I know, its not much, but it was helpful to write it down and brain dump all my thoughts into some kind of visual explanation. I go into more detail after these pages in my handy dandy notebook, but I didn't want to swarm this post with journal pics...
In addition to planning out the nitty gritty details, I've been engaging myself in free-writing sessions for just a few minutes here and there, in addition to improv jams with myself just to get the movement flowing in my body.
I'm feeling good about where I am so far in this process. So far, I've planned out a basic idea and order for the show (even though I have no dancers yet or really know what each piece is about), I've got a good understanding on what the Photo Gallery will consist of, I've done research on printing, mounting, etc., and have planned and am prepped for the March photo shoot!
Stay tuned! Coming up next on Behind-the-Scenes "Of Being" --> OUR PHOTOSHOOT!
