The dimensions of the theater and the constraints of our projector meant that we had to use rear-projection. Which we had never done before. So we arranged for a rental screen and crossed our fingers. We formulated a series of back up plans, but fortunately didn't have to use any of them because the projection looked great.
A huge leap forward for this show was the addition of Ben Taylor as musical director. Ben was half of the band for Cinema 2.0, and just as I found with that show, that music fills out a movie enormously, the same was true with The Neutrino Project. Ben played bass, drum machine, effects box, and iPod and everyone said the music was great. (I had set up a VCR to tape the show, but forgot to press record before I left the theater. I had Megan do it when I remembered, but we only got the last 20 minutes of the show. That 20 minutes sounded great, so I trust that the rest was great, too.)
The show was rather good, too. The suggestion was "Narcolepsy" and we had the world's worst cop duo, a narcoleptic date that ended in an accidental death, a very over-protective friend, and a dream sequence.
The only down-side to the whole night was that there were only 62 people in the audience, our smallest audience yet. We didn't have a lot of time to do advance PR, but it was still a little disappointing, especially in a 330-seat theater. One of those sixty-two, though, was Emo Philips. Evidently, he liked the show. Emo is going to be performing with our friends Bassprov on Wednesday at WNEP.
