It’s been a busy couple of months for us at Green Cloak! Between directing, performing, coordinating, designing, and polishing, there’s been very few quiet days around here. Here’s some of what we’ve been working on:
“Imaginary!” – an original play by Philadelphia area Playwright, Bill D’Agostino, Adam directed the cast of 11 actors and did the sound design for this production at Montgomery Theater in Souderton. Performances run from October 18th until October 27th.
“Poe’s Unhappy Hour” – Adam portrays Edgar Allan Poe in this live and interactive show at the Yocum Institute for Arts Education in Reading, PA. After two days of school shows, only one public performance will be held on October 25th.
“The Last Kin” – a feature film by Matt Duffin and Mpire Motion Pictures – GCC has provided all of the post-production on this feature, from the first rough cut edit to the final sound and visual fx pass, as well as basic color correction.
“Alpha Rift” – feature film by Dan Lantz and Falling Cat Productions – GCC is currently working on dialogue cleanup and sound effects for this incredible film which is coming in 2020!
“Alpha Rift: the Game” – work also continues on the design and refinement on the movie tie-in game, with playtesting ongoing and feedback helping to improve gameplay and balance.
Visual Expressions – Adam stepped in as substitute puppet performer for “Site and Sound: Revealing the Rail Park” after VEC’s Hua Hua Zhang suffered an injury during rehearsal. Adam led event participants in a group “Dragon Dance” using one of Hua Hua’s original creations in the unique space and in conjunction with other dancers and musicians in attendance. Adam also continues to be Hua Hua’s Production Manager, coordinating the installation and display of her original exhibit “Mythical Chinese Dragon” at the Asian Arts Initiative in Philadelphia for the month of September as part of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival.
Our latest audiobook project, “A Reflection of Ice” by Katherine McIntyre, is now available! This short story is YA friendly with some beautiful text painting. We loved seeing the ice castle in our mind while reading, and can’t wait for you to enjoy it as well. Available here!
“Tian Wen” is an experimental puppetry show that has been created specifically for the La Mama Puppet Festival. Its world premiere will occur on November 3rd at La Mama’s Ellen Stewart Theatre in New York City. Online ticketing is available for all three performances at La Mama’s website.
Before that, there will be two previews as part of the Philadelphia FringeArts Festival on September 19th and 20th. Limited tickets remain to these sessions and can be found at the FringeArts website.
“The Bones of Valhalla,” the 9th and final installment of the “Purge of Babylon” series is finally available for sale! It’s taken us 3 years and over 100 finished hours (which equates to closer to 300 working hours) to narrate and produce this full series of audiobooks. If you listen to them from start to finish, you’ll be able to actually hear Adam’s evolution as a narrator; from fresh-voiced newb, to grizzled veteran.
Next month come see White Nights, the new installation art performance by Hua Hua Zhang’s Visual Expressions.
Green Cloak is the Technical Director and Production Manager for this show, helping with site installation of the art pieces, designing the experimental lighting, controlling the pre-recorded sound and lights during the performances, and advising on the flow and timing of the performers themselves.
There will only be two chances to see the show this Fall in the United States before it travels to the Asian Pacific Traditional Arts – International Puppet Art Festival in Taiwan for its World Premiere.
