Anyone willing to be interviewed?
« on: Feb 13, 2007, 01:48 am »
Hello All!
I am a junior in high school currently working on a research paper/project and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in being interviewed (via email) I need to have at least one interviewed source, and I'd love to be able to interview someone who has been in the industry for a while. It doesn't really matter if the person I interview is equity or not, as long as you have quite a bit of experience. If anyone would be interested in this, please let me know. It shouldn't take very long and I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks,
Mitch

I'm not in the industry yet.  I'm a senior in college.  If you would like I would love to give you insight on what it is like in college.  Stilts15ak@aol.com.

I've been SMing professionally for about five years, and for years before that in high school and college.  I also grew up backstage in a theatre family.  I'd be glad to answer interview questions for you if I could be of help.

Sure, I'll do it if you need more folks.  I'm currently in grad school, but was an active Equity SM for 8 years before coming back to school.

What is the focus of the research paper? I would be more than willing to help out if I can.

I am focusing on the role of a stage manager and the importance of a stage manager in theatrical productions. Sure you could re-delegate tasks that a stage manager is normally responsible for, but is that efficient, effective, and worth it?

The prelude to Lawrence Sterns book on stage management has a good anectdote about an SM'less company. It may have some quotes/etc in there which you can use.

I'm also very willing as well if you need anyone else!
