Mainly focussed on live theatre and musical theatre, the group has grown over Zoom in lockdown to 600+ people. Continue reading

Externality is important too. I ask myself why I blog rather than privately journal. My notebooks are chaotic and imposing upon myself structure to present prose for reading is a push into and beyond my comfort zone. I get disheartened when the view figure is low but I remind myself here at the start of the new year that it’s purpose is not for the reader but for me to share in case a someone around me is curious about how I work as I’m not very good at sharing this stuff. I welcome others to share their thoughts either in the comments or to post a link to there own voyage into mind sharing. Continue reading

I've not had time to do a lot of planning and I apologies if you can’t attend or participate at such short notice. I run these remote access opportunities in order to demonstrate to Equity how remote access and hybrid engagement with branch members could be approached. Sat 25 October 8 - 9 pm and Mon 27 October 2 - 2.45 pm (UK Time) I'd very much like to share this experience with fellow members. It will be the third time I experience the piece. It’s a brain controlled film. Controlled by one brain and on this occasion the viewer is being streamed we will watch the film interpreted by their brain waves. Continue reading

I write and post this as much for my own curiosity to see its impact on the reach stats. It's not about numbers it's about the audience. When reach was organic being topical and transparent was a requisite. Now you need to dance with the algorithm of whichever platform you want to build upon. Continue reading
