The secret experiment & the reason there's just 1 week of Summer Camp this year.
I'm going on a writing sabbatical. I've been in the Lab for 7 years and written over 40 plays performed for the kids!
As a secret experiment some time ago, we filmed an experimental episode in my living room. I was directing and found myself at one point upside down on the floor explaining how I imagined the characters could be entering the frame. The physical translation of the mental image sent endorphins through me--you all know I'm a visual artist and I love dance. The role of being a director really activates the mind and the body. It also allows me to energize my actors and investigate the possibilities of the dynamics happening between characters in real time.
We shot only the first day of footage when I saw the edits and said to myself. YES! This is AWESOME!!!! THIS is the direction we will go. I'm excited to say that my plan to supercharge the creativity in children has attracted a creative producer from Hollywood. He loves our stories and saw this experiment and is assisting me in the pursuit of my dream -- to produce an educational webisode series for kids!
I'll admit that as an entrepreneur and creative artist, changing and growing is both thrilling and sort of scary for me all at the same time. I'm super excited and hope you'll all hold my hand as I work to inspire kids creatively through a new medium this summer.
More about this later!
For now- REGISTER for Feb 3. And put the other 2 on your calendars now so you don't miss out. I am working on setting up registration for March 3 and our 1 week ONLY of summer camp. I'll let you know when that goes live!
