Today was a busy day with lots to do. The first part of the day was working our schedules for rehearsals, packing, logistics and manpower for all our shows & projects for this week. We are running multiple shows that will require multiple set-ups of illusions and different tech requirements. But I think we will survive!
We are having a big production meeting tomorrow with the team on all aspects of “The Aerial Exit“. The final assembly of the main apparatus (we call the “cage”) is on the way. We are adding in the final structural supports as well as rigging components that will allow us to safely elevate the “cage” with the 5 people up into the air.
As you can see, the “cage” is really quite small. It is designed to hold the 5 people snugly in a standing position. There is really no place to hide! While the “cage” will first be supported off the stage floor on concrete blocks (as seen below), it will be lifted off the blocks and into the air with the audience surrounding the mega illusion from below.
During the day, Ning & I did an interview with Lianhe Wanbao to promote “The Aerial Exit”. The local media has been so supportive with all our shows for Explore Singapore 2010 and we look forward to all the people who will be coming down for the mega illusion this Sunday, 12 Dec 2010 @ 5pm.
Later in the evening, we headed to the MediaCorp radion station with a live in-studio interview with Jean Danker and Bobby Tonelli on Class 95.
It was a fun interview and I think we all had great chemistry together and hope it translated well across the airwaves.
You might know that on Sat, 11 Dec 2010, our friends from Class 95 – the DJs will be taking a 20km walk in aid for the Operation Smiles project. Ning & I added a tiny contribution to the fund. In fact, we do it everytime we see the can at various department stores.
Finally, the Mint Museum of Toys posted a photo of us in their Facebook “Personalities” album. I really love the pic! LB4L
