ESCApe Artist

ESCApe Artist Powered By Docstoc
					My name is Mim Cross, and I produce shows for ESCApe Artist. In order to pass on a
few bits of information to other producers, I have created this handbook. The
information was correct as of April 2007. Please treat all the contacts in it well, as some
of them are personal contacts; none of the contacts here have agreed to being put in this
guidebook, but it is fine to say that it was me that referred you to them if they ask.
Furthermore, some of them are volunteers, so please only call during office hours, and
please explain who you are.
If you need any further help, you can reach me (in Salamanca) during 2007/2008
and (in Edinburgh) during 2008/2009 on M.C.H.Cross@sms.ed.ac.uk.
Becs Kump, who worked on this handbook with me, will be in Edinburgh during 2007/8
and can be reached for advice on kump_55@hotmail.co.uk

ESCApe Artist
So, what is ESCApe Artist?
Your best place to find out is http://escapeartist.org.uk/
As you go through the production process, you’ll need to tell lots of people about
ESCApe Artist. Useful information to know is:
 ‘Escape Artist is the productions branch of ESCA (Edinburgh Students Charities
Appeal). (Charity No.SC035064)’
 At the end of the handbook is a letterhead you can use on official letters. It is best to get
use of this approved by somebody from the ESCApe Artist Hierarchy (more about this
is below).

Who are ESCApe Artist?
Managing Director: The Managing Director will know about your project, and big
decisions have to go through him/her, but s/he is not usually hands-on with projects, due
to the sheer amount of work this would require. Currently the MD is Ella Hickson, but
this will change.
Finance Director: The Finance Director will help you with budgeting, using money
from the ESCApe Artist account, and all things financial. S/he can write cheques for
expenses (e.g. venue hire) and holds details of the ESCApe Artist account for grant
applications and such. Currently this is Claire Glendenning.
Secretary: Self-explanatory, very little to do with your project probably. Currently
Antonia Alonzo.
Marketing Director: Will help you, if necessary, with marketing strategy, or give you
contacts, but you must have your own publicity manager to do your posters, fliers, etc.
Website: Get your project up on the website. The man, currently, to contact is
Alexander: alex@beefour.com
Theatrical Manager (or some such position): This is somebody who oversees all the
projects related to theatre and arts. They will help things move along for you, and if you
are doing a theatrical production they will probably be your first point of contact.




Ok, your project is an ESCApe Artist Productions project, but what happens now?
   1. Make an ESCApe Artist (henceforth, EA) folder in your email browser.
      Seriously, you’ll need it.
   2. If you need staff, write the Managing Director an email with details of the
      positions you need filling, and they will send this to all people signed up to be
      involved with EA.
   Also, to find staff try using Edinburgh Gumtree; an online forum for Edinburgh.
   Make sure you specify it is a voluntary position, working for charity.
   3. Get your project up on the website. The man, currently, to contact is Alexander:
      alex@beefour.com
   4. Use the contacts etc. below to put your show together.

Contacts
Venue
EA don’t have their own venue, so venue is likely to be your biggest issue. Below is a
list me and Becs Kamp compiled, of all the venues we’ve discovered info on:
     1) Bongo Club
     Pros: We used this for our show. The manager is called Ally Hill and is great, and
     will cut you a deal because we’re a charity. He can be contacted on 0131 5588844
     or ally@thebongoclub.co.uk. The stage is not great for theatre, but perfect for music.
     However, we managed to put on a theatre show! They can fit 150 seats maximum,
     but 95 comfortably in a cabaret layout. They offer lots of stuff; like box office, café,
     lighting and sound, etc. And it’s really central!
     Cons: The venue is very busy, which means they may not have the dates you want,
     and won’t be able to give you a weeks run or whatever. Something happens almost
     every night there, so your technician will have to cope with slightly re-setting up on
     the day before the evening’s performance (even if they have set up a few days
     before.)
     2) Netherbow Theatre – basement of the Scottish Storytelling Centre, on the Royal
          Mile.
     Pros: Central. New theatre with plenty of tech.
     Cons: Expensive (£400 per 4 hours?)
     3) Theatre Workshop, Stockbridge
     4) North Edinburgh Arts
     5) Saint Bride’s Centre
     6) Reid Hall (music dept. of Edinburgh Uni operates this)
     7) Bedlam Theatre (as an ‘outside hire’)
     8) Churchill Theatre
     9) Pleasance Theatre
     10) Adam House Theatre, Chambers Street
     I hear this is a good set-up, used to dealing with the students, and very central, but
     this venue is near impossible to rent out between the months of April and September
     due to exams and then outside hire and the Fringe. Call Christine Johnson on 0131
     651 4177
     11) Teviot Underground
     Beware the small stage (and the cold if your audience is small), but still a decent
     little venue, and central!
     12) The Traverse theatre is one we have never used but are aware of ESCApe
     Artists and have expressed great interest in wanting to work with us. They are a
     great theatre with amazing facilities including two different size auditoriums (the
     Trav 1 and Trav 2: seating 300 and 100 people respectively. But, they are very busy
     and likely to cost a fair bit so get onto them early if you are interested in this venue.

Rehearsal Space


                                              2
 There is a hall called Bristo Hall above the Forest Café (opposite Bedlam) which EA
 people can use (usually for free). To check availability, look at
 http://aecalendar.com/ and use the online booking form. Entrance is via the café, or
 on the weekends you have to get a key and a code. It is owned by Edinburgh
 University Settlement (EUS) and looked after by Emily Roff (07772 945868,
 bristohall@yahoo.com)
 Pleasance books out rooms to societies (free as long as it’s not before a certain time
 on the weekend). Go into the office, on the left as you enter Pleasance. Different sizes
 available, and they tend to be warmer than Bristo Hall, which is a plus.
 If you’re still stuck, and you need the space in a period when Bedlam is not having
 shows, you can ask to use Bedlam. This may involve payment. The Secretary for
 2007/2008 is Fran, 07971568749
 The Bongo Club are also often willing to offer rehearsal space too especially as their
 building is classified as a University building. There is no harm is trying them.
 Still stuck? Mikey of EUS is somebody you could ask about where you might find
 space. Telephone 0773 2667196. Please note, it is not his full-time job, and I’m pretty
 sure he’s only a volunteer.



Funding
If your project is of a charitable/community-based nature, and you have at least 9 weeks
until it begins, you may be able to apply to Awards for All Scotland for a grant. You can
find information about this, and the other Big Lottery grants, online by using Google.
My project was given a grant of £1900 by Awards for All, and they are likely to give
you what you ask, but they do take 8 weeks for a decision, and the application form
must be filled out correctly. However, ESCApe Artist has a copy of my application
form, which may be useful to you.
At the end of this guide there is a copy of a document called ‘Funding Sources for the
Arts in Scotland (FUN4)’ that may be of us when considering applying for funding.
There are various other ways to fundraise, e.g.
o To get people to pay to advertise in your programme, ask the EA Publicity Manager
    for advice on who to approach and how; the letterhead may come in useful here.

Previously used set/props/costume (and collection buckets if you need them!)
Chris Richardson - chris@escaonline.org
Chris works for ESCA, at their offices in Potterow (along from the student shop there.)
The set, props and costumes I used for my show are being kept by ESCA, and as an
ESCApe Artist, you can have use of them! There are two big black flats, one black
doorframe, an old woman’s shopper, somme toy weapons, some road signs, and various
other bits and pieces. Chris is great, and can help with charity-related info.

Set (not voluntary)
Dan @ the Lyceum
07967 726 698
Workshop is at 29 Roseburn Street (next to a furniture/interiors shop)
He is good, but you have to pay. Mind you, he’ll be reasonable.

Makeup (voluntary)

                                            3
Ariel Liu
arielliu83@hotmail.com

Removals (not voluntary)
Man with a van (Dave)
0131 659 5777
I didn’t shop around to check prices; but this guy is reliable, costs £35 for one move
(approx.) and is available short notice (both times I booked him on the day!)

Filming (voluntary)
Chris Brooks of EMPS (Edinburgh Movie Productions Society) will send an email to
the society to find somebody interested in filming your show if you like, or he may even
film it himself: s0563098@sms.ed.ac.uk He may have handed over to another President,
so just email and ask who to contact.
Getting a good relationship with EMPS will become increasingly important for ESCApe
Artist, I believe.

Publicity
First, make sure you’ve got a dedicated Publicity Manager. Talk to them about your
target audience, and where you might find them.
o For posters/fliers, try CopyMaid (on the way to Haymarket) or Events Armoury.
o For somebody to design them, why not put up an advert around Edinburgh Art
    College, which has young designers who may be willing to work for free to build up
    their portfolio.
o For clothing, strike a deal with David at Walker Slater (07766410289) or pop in to
    Walker Slater on Victoria Street and ask to talk to the people that print onto clothing
    (they are upstairs, above the actual Walker Slater shop).
