And no, it’s not the raising terror alert in US.

It is, in fact, the colours of my script getting shorter. Much shorter. As difficult as it might be to cut, with each cut the story actually seems to be getting clearer. It feels, at first, as if you are stripping away important details, but in fact what is actually happening is that you are focusing the eye of the audience on what is truly important. It’s really interesting. Not easy, but interesting.

So first it was yellow: tactical large chunks. Now it is orange: more surgical, but still some big pieces. I’m thinking next will be green…those will be the cuts that can’t even fathom doing right now. By the end of this my script will be very colorful indeed.

In any case, the Red Arrow is the only way to move between YYC and YEG, cruising right by each airport on the way. Oh, there’s YEG. Home soon.

Finally, it has a title. Whew! I’m really happy with this. It’s close enough to the Shakespeare but still different. I believe it implies a more modern connotation of the word ‘measure’ which is even kind of newsy. It almost could be the title of a news show…which is exactly what it needs to be. All the titles we were playing around with, most of which came from the text of Measure for Measure all felt a bit pompous. I think we’ve made the right decision. But here’s the list:

What Our Seemers Be
The Outward Side
The One Wearing White
As Faults from Seeming Free
The Deceiver Deceived
All Good Seeming
If Power Change Purpose What Our Seemers Be
Oh! Love’s Best Habit is in Seeming Trust
Seeming, Seeming
A Feather Will Turn the Scale
Cleaning House
Our Man on the Ground
Measures and Seemers
Measures and Measures
Measure to Measures
Measures to Measures

  • A photo from another world… February 15, 2012
    Here it is. The first glimpse of the next cast of Saint Aggie’s ’84. Yes, the photo is bit grainy and slightly unclear, reminding me a little of a photo from early space exploration, an early moon probe, transmitted back to earth slowly via radio waves and taking hours to receive, decipher and print. Of […]
