Kiddie Theater and Dinner

Yesterday after work I helped MDB with the final part of her capstone by playing theatre techie. She did this two week workshops with some kids that included them making short movies. Yesterday was the screening of the movies for their families. I'm really glad that I came with her because I was able to speak Tech to the tech director of the theatre where the stuff was being shown. We ended up setting up a projector and screen attached to an independent sound system. After MDB left to go get the kids, lordaerith showed up to help also (actually, he was the one that originally was supposed to be helping). He talked to the tech director guy a bit, and fiddled with the lights so that there could be a spotlight on the stage.

The whole thing went pretty well. I worked sound and computer from the middle of the audience and Aerith worked lights from the booth. The movies were actually pretty well done for middle-school age productions.

After it was over, Aerith and I headed out to Central Market for Poly dinner. Yay for seeing people that we haven't seen in ages and ages. Had some good food and good conversations. Found out that made_of_paradox got me a present. Also started talks for a showing of Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter because more people need to see that movie. The Alamo Drafthouse's Rolling Roadshow was showing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at Central Market that evening also, but Aerith was getting really tired, so we left just as the movie was starting.

Currently I am avoiding doing work at work. It's cold in here.
