ACT 1 Theatre’s Sylvia

My most recent experience as an act in almost, if not longer, a year. ACT 1 Theatre is a Non-Profit Theater company stationed in Sumner, WA. The production was performed in Puyallup’s Liberty Theater which is basically a historical landmark in the town. This was ACT 1 first production there — I could be wrong because I usually am — and the Liberty’s first production in more than 24 years, or at least since I’ve lived in this town. I felt very lucky to be part of this production since in some ways I felt recognized as an actor. Since graduating from Washington State University, it’s been tough to say the least. From my current unemployment, to the uncertainty of pursuing a graduate degree, and all in all indecisiveness of what’s next left me feel depressed and anxious. I am very thankful for ACT 1 welcoming me into their community, and hope more is yet to come with them. Please support their efforts by donating to their webpage, http://act1theatre.org/. From one who’s been living in this town for most of my life,┬áit’s safe for me to say Puyallup isn’t center of culture, but it certainly has potential if the community can pull it’s act together.

My second one-act play

Over the summer of 2016, I wrote my second one-act.

Not the original idea I planned on writing, but the one I managed to finish.

When fall semester started I submitted it for the 2016 production of Stage One, but no luck.

Maybe I’ll get a chance to revise it, and improve upon it at some point.

Reach out to me if you’re interested to read it and offer some constructive criticism; till then it’s on the shelf.

During my first semester at Washington State University, I took steps to apply myself in the fields of journalism; back when I saw myself as Communication major. I started as a reporter for the Life section focusing on culture and arts around the Palouse. Sadly I only worked for a semester because I was unable to keep up with the DE’s demand for an article a week. Yet it felt like one of the most rewarding experiences upon my arrival in Pullman.

Stage Managing for Avec Schmaltz 2016

avec-schmaltz

In the first half of 2016, I took the initiative to make a new experience in theater off stage as a Stage Manager. Basically, what it came down to was keeping track of everyone and everything that the directors need during rehearsals, performances, and everything in between; props, schedules, audition materials, stage directions, cast attendance, sound and light cues, and house shows. A great step for my theater reputation.

Eurydice: Assistant Sound Designer & Dramaturg

Early on of Fall 2016, I knew I had one last chance to contribute to Theater. Starting out in the summer, I advocated to Mary Trotter to be a part of the play in anyway shape or form. From conversation about concepts of the play, then auditioning, and being selected for Dramaturg and Assistant Sound Designer. I gained two more experiences for the price of one.

COMJOUR 466: A day in the life project

Perhaps my favorite project I did for the class, because it was the most simple, it was emotional, and the most experimental. I owe a lot to my friend James Handy (http://phantron.wixsite.com/jameshandy) for his help in this project. The objective of this was to pick an object and it’s relveance in my day to day life, and at that time, I started a job at the school library, I was stage managing for a play, and my anxiety was through the roof over my academia. The compliation of sounds in the audio is meant to be a retrospection of the recent events of the day as I work during a graveyard shift. the ending could a better fade out though.

COMJOUR 466: Location bit

The problem I had for this bit was the loss of the objective of my film, to explore a space to tell a story, and I ended up making it a publicity piece for a play I was stage managing for last year. I made my first attempt in film score with these pieces being original compositions. One other aspect that I liked out of this project was the use of L editing. Where the shot changes happen in an L shape in Avid. I’d say it looked rather seamless.
