The day after our first presentations, we went to Regent’s with some headphones to discover our routes and the logistics of using the transmitter in an open space. We had an idea of Conor’s route and walked it out, timing it to around 27 minutes. We then went on a hunt for the route for my piece, and somewhat struggled. We had a vague inkling of where we wanted it to go but hadn’t visited that part of the park. We then went over how the routes would crossover, devising the themes of the journey as we wandered around. It was very early days but we were already feeling the pressure of time on us.
We then went back to uni and starting thinking about the script, outlining the opening and working out what points in the physical journey would be key to the narrative of the script. We wrote out what we nicknamed our ‘safety briefing’, which opens our piece to ensure the audience feel as comfortable as they can, considering they would be on their own.
