This is not going well. We're about halfway through the campaign and we've raised less than a quarter of our goal. That's nowhere near enough in order to be able to accomplish what we're trying to do.
As a reminder, what KCT is trying to do is produce a version of Henry V, updated to here & now and England vs Scotland, at the Edinburgh Festival in 2014, to take advantage of the upcoming referendum on independence. We work with actors with learning disabilities, giving them an opportunity to experience the world's largest and most prestigious performing arts festival, an opportunity for their talents to be recognised in a wider field than just among other actors with learning disabilities, and an opportunity to be treated as independent functioning adults, which is not something that many people with learning disabilities often get.
Please share the campaign (http://igg.me/at/kct-henry5/) with everyone you know, and encourage them to donate.
KCT is hoping to take a show to the Edinburgh Festival next year, but to do so, we need to raise funds. Please donate, and spread the word.
So - I did my filming, I bought a firewire-usb adaptor, I re-downloaded a video editing package. Neither of my laptops recognise that I've plugged the camera in.
Does anybody in the West Yorkshire area have a Mac with a firewire port so I can get the footage off the tape and onto a harddrive?
I fucking hate facebook's interface! On LJ, if I want to send a message to a friend, I find that friend, click on their username, click on user info, and click on send message. On FB, it insists on putting you through instant chat if that person's logged in, which is worse than useless if what you need to say to them takes up more than three or four lines of the ridiculously tiny window! You have to jump through hoops to even get to the inbox, let alone write a new message from there.
King Cobra Theatre are currently trying to find someone to help us film a short promotional video for next year's project. If you know anyone who might have the kit required to film on Ilkley Moor, please get in touch!
Finally finished updating my website! It's been languishing un-updated for over a year now, mainly because my time at MTG made me too Depressed to bother keeping it updated. Well, I'm out of MTG now, I've taken a show to Edinburgh, and I am no longer Depressed. So, over the last week I've been going over the files and now, today, they have been updated! Woo!
