Postering & Possibilities

Good Day,

Today was an important one in Fringe Preparations - Postering Day! At 6 p.m., the gates to the Fringe Park  (Rachel & St-Laurent) swung open as attention-hungry artists swarmed in to poster every available surface! In less than an hour, fences, benches, tabletops and portaloos were covered in advertising material.

Bruce is a postering ninja, thanks to his stint last year with the advertising masters of Cobra III - We (along with my fellow postering padawan Marina) set up some large panels of several posters across and down to create an impressive Jane Austen tessellation. (We managed to snag a nice spot near the box office for it!)

(I will put up a picture of the poster, once I get it in a blog-friendly format - Why won't you upload my pdf, Blogger? Why?)

Of course, the beer tent in the park is open now, as well, so it is a great chance to hang out with other artists, volunteers and Fringe junkies and start deciding on what shows to see. (There are so many! My top wanna-see shows so far are: Shades of Grey, Miss Sugarpuss Must Die!, The Further Adventures of Antoine Feval and Dance Animal.)

I managed to see 25 shows last year - I am aiming to break my record!

  1. Try creating a smaller version that is less than 30 KB to upload. Also images will be better in jpg format. Use Photoshop or some other imaging program to convert the pdf to jpg.
