Scale Models

Meeting with Jean Block at Ercola, who is building the décor and stage props, particularly the projection table and the scale models. The table is crucial: it’s a theatre-within-a-theatre. The projected images will be made onstage. It needs the illusion of depth, but it also should be practical thing, allowing for easy changeovers.

A concept like this has many little odds and ends that need clarification. We’ve outlined what we needed, but we’ll get together next Saturday to make decisions on measurements, aesthetics and time frame. Fortunately, Ercola is available to help us out.
