School is in Session + We’ve Got Video!

CCC_POSTCARD_FRONT-690x1024(no, not video of school. I mean really. But we do have videos.)

CDAM -101 started last night and marketing for the arts is in full swing. We’ve got a group of twenty students who run the artistic gamut from filmmakers to theatre artists to arts administrators to visual artists and they all seem to be quite bright and funny and excited to be there and I am really looking forward to it.

Then I came home and continued the paperwork. Anyone who knows me knows I am not a fan of paperwork (although this time is is the set up process and it is worth it.)

I am an official Ryerson instructor now, I am a member of CUPE Local 3904, Unit 2 and I have an ID and an email address and soon I will have a plastic card that gives me privileges to get in and out of rooms. It’s all quite exciting.

Videos for Tuesday!

We’ve got client videos, first of all a great little video interview with Chris Stanton who’s directed Laws of Motion, currently playing at the Jam Factory above Merchants of Green Coffee in Leslieville. I’m going tonight to see it, and you should check it out as well – stellar review from Mooney on Theatre. Sidebar laugh – Chris and I have never worked together in all the time we’ve travelled in the same theatre world circles, and suddenly WHAM! We’re one three shows together in five weeks.

Next video – promo shot for fu-GEN’s Ching Chong Chinaman which is a fantastic little piece. Saying the phrase “Ching Chong Chinaman” is guaranteed to get you an odd look, not including the one on your own face. Watch and see.

Sunday Roundup – March 3

Brady LOMI think March came in like a lamb, but am not entirely sure. Perhaps it was some other animal.
A reminder that Laws of Motion opened on March 1, and is running till March 15. Check it out.

facebook likes, facebook interactions – Monday infographics

You Can’t Spell Carpet Without Art – but Art Isn’t Carpet – several likes and shares on this one – I’m glad it resonated with folks, as it seemed to stick the landing in my head.

Recommended Reading and My Class Starts Monday

Last week seemed to be a week of articles on how to be a good writer, how to be a better writer, better, best, bested.  Here’s one of them. And for a laugh about your website that might ring true –  Things Nobody Has Ever Said about Your Website.

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Roundup – February 24

Last Roundup for February – De Chardin Project closed last week, and 4.48 Psychosis closed Saturday night, and by next roundup, Laws of Motion will have opened. So much going on – all these are followed by Ching Chong Chinaman, The Whipping Man, The Charge of the Expormidable Moose, Sister Mary’s a Dyke?! and Aromas. Got theatre? Yup.

Noticed last week there were a few problems with WordPress.com  – images not loading, pages taking forever to load. Hopefully it’s been resolved on their end, because I did notice it had an effect on my site stats and hits, and I can’t blame people  – slow or not loading sites don’t get traffic. Fingers crossed. Times like this I’m glad there’s a roundup – here’s what might not have loaded for you last week.

Last week…

things going well and not so well in the socialmediaverse

Three Directors Talk Back and Baby’s First Opening

Video Thursday

I obviously do a lot of writing in my work, and for fun as well. Words make me happy,  well written words delight. And any number of people want a blog, have a blog, say they want or need a blog, are writing a blog, etc. so when I found this article… one of the comments struck me as mighty true “although we “publish” more content than ever before, our writing skills (often) get in the way of effective communication.

I thought it was a great Sunday read, and something many of us should take a look at – enjoy!
