Spotted inside Q Theatre, Auckland, in the stand under the blackboard.
Spotted outside: the lovely Jaimee Burgess, musical director of Fitz Bunny: Lust for Glory (2007 Wellington production).
Spotted inside: Simon Coleman, director of Fitz Bunny: Lust for Glory (2010 Auckland production).
Small, the theatre world.
A series of postcards for Theatreview, available as freebies at all good theatres around New Zealand.
Jitterati will next appear in June’s FishHead magazine. Which is nice.
Free, that is, in the sense that you can download the A3 PDF (7.8MB) for free, take it in to any print store on a flash drive or disc, and then pay to have it printed yo’self.
“Is it possible to revert to the first cover you sent through, but add colour to the hair and jacket? Maybe a blond, with coloured jacket, we get that it is a silhouette, but we avoid black on the cover as it looks gloomy in the stands and deters pickup, it also means lots of ink on the cover and the ink comes off on readers hands and they don’t like it and don’t pick it up. We love the bucket fountain as a device. Also we love the badge on the breast but would want words slightly less precious, the best we have come up with here so far is Over and Out”
“Terribly sorry, but I’m not touching that first cover.”
“Just to let you know, after much back and forth discussion, we went with your first cover option for this last paper, we had to modify slightly, I hope that is ok with you.”
And that, dear reader, is what they did.
Well, that’s it for Jitterati. Thank you for reading. I’ve uploaded the complete archives here, but in the past couple of days I unwisely offered to produce the final cover of Capital Times, and haven’t had time to annotate the 540 episodes from the past 12 years. Click on the image above (the second rejected cover design in 24 hours) for an A3 print-quality PDF (7.8MB).
I thought I’d feel differently about this, but it’s been such bloody chaos in the past 48 hours I haven’t processed it. After I get back from a quick Wellington visit, I’ll work out what to do next.
Final next week! How exciting.
