Digital Production Workshop: A Case Study of Tisch Drama’s 'The Clouds'

The Clouds Production Workshop

Tisch Drama Presents:

Digital Production Workshop

A Case Study of NYU Tisch Drama’s The Clouds

Please join us for a comprehensive look at the making of Tisch Drama's New Studio On Broadway Physical Acting Ensemble’s production The Clouds by Aristophanes, as featured on New York 1 and Playbill. This free two-day comprehensive workshop is open to the public and will be broken down into a series of sessions exploring the creative and technical aspects of producing the fully remote production. The workshop will cover:

  • Rehearsing
  • Choreography
  • Stage Management
  • Production Management
  • Music Composition and Creation
  • Design and Virtual Backgrounds (painting, animating, green screen projection, keying)
  • Video Editing and IT support
  • Experiments in Broadcasting (Zoom, OBS and Vimeo’s Livestream—among others)

...and more!

A Zoom webinar link and additional supplemental materials will be provided to registrants prior to the workshop.

The Clouds was designed, rehearsed, and broadcast during the New York City shutdown due to COVID-19. Originally set to have six performances from May 5–9, the company had to pivot into a fully remote, virtual production process.

Presenters will include: Orlando Pabotoy (Director), members of the Ensemble (who also edited and composed), Caroline Ragland (Stage Manager), Nikki Amico and Ellie Handel (Assistant Directors), Brídín Clements and Hilary Tanabe (Production Administrators), Designers Wesley Cornwall (Scenic), Camilla Dely (Costume), Charlotte Seelig (Lighting), Gregory Chan (Technologist), John Kemp (Director of Audio and Media at Tisch Drama), music composition and arrangements.

Once participants register, they will be given access to view a recording of The Clouds. It is recommended that participants watch the digital production in advance of attending the workshop. Additional supplemental materials will also be provided prior to the workshop.
