Documenting your Show

A2S82pAWfeifFjPUGFxqe6cq9YITVTJDZZDOuQMq1DQSpent yesterday talking about live music and new venues for it and art and film and pixels with one great group, then spent more time talking with another amazing group of artists from Zed.To  about the business of their art. Excellent Sunday.

You might remember in December I wrote an article for the Charlebois Post on Emerging Companies and Marketing (it’s linked there in case you haven’t read it yet).

It’s January and the incomparable Dahlia Katz has written an excellent article on theatre photography. Read it – it’s brilliant and true and teaches you things you might not know, and confirms others you do. She knows of what she speaks , in fact she won Charpo-Toronto’s Photo of the Year 2012. Her closing line is unbelievably true and sometimes something we can sometimes forget in the whirlwind of putting together live performance:

Theatre is an ephemeral thing.  Take the time and the money to memorialize it with dignity, sophistication and professionalism.

Go read.

Tomorrow I’m heading to the Tranzac for the Paper Nickels CD Release party. I cannot wait – I’ve talked numerous times about Corin Raymond and the Canadian Tire Money Caper and it’s coming to fruition. More on that later. ETA – this is what I’m talking about:

Business is Booming and Introducing Camp Tech

Homebody goes into rehearsals next week, Proud goes into rehearsals next week, and I’ve signed on to work with two repeat clients that take me well into the new year.  Two social media for artists workshops coming up in the fall. I’m also working with a group out of Vancouver  – a piece for young audiences called Math Out Loud , aimed at high school students to show them how math affects everything in life from the curve of a river bed, to music to Escher. Click here for their promo video.

Jeez, business is good.

If I had time right now – I’d absolutely be going to this – Camp Tech. You’ve heard me brag about Avery Swartz before – she did my business cards and the logo you see on my website, did the design for Proud and is just all around darn good at what she does. Now she’s expanded her business – CAMP TECH.

Camp Tech offers practical, professional tech skills training in a fun & friendly environment. Our relaxed, informative, & hands-on classes in downtown Toronto are for anyone curious to learn more about technology.  Click here for classes in everything from Photoshop to html and SEO.

Nice going, Ms. Swartz.

I marvel every so often about the business I am in and the work that I do. I’m surrounded by talented, creative people and it makes me happy.  And now I’m off to lunch with uber-photog Dahlia Katz, before coming back and finishing cash flows and distribution plans (I didn’t say it was ALL glamorous…)
