" Being able to work on
Folxtales was like stepping
into the sun after two weeks
of nothing but clouds. It was
refreshing and motivating
at the same time. I knew
that not everyone had the
same opportunity I was being given thanks to the university's COVID-19 policies
and I tried to make the absolute most out of working on
this production. It became a
huge learning experience for
me since I hadn't previously
worked with lighting for film
or green screen work before.
Lighting comes off a lot different on a screen than it
does on a stage, especially
depending on the camera's
settings. It was also interesting trying to keep a green
screen well-lit while making
sure my designs came across
on the actor's figure. The
whole project taught me a lot
and I'll forever count myself
as lucky for being able to continue my passion in such an
unprecedented situation. "
-Elliot Hubiak, junior, lighting
director for Folxtales

Folxtales
A student production team filmed the graduate actors in front
of a green screen in the Digital Media Design Lab for the devised production of Folxtales, overseen by Aaron Muñoz, assistant professor of acting, (director and script supervisor) and
John Boesche, chair of Digital Media for Live Performance,
(photography director and concept developer). Members of
the Department of Theatre wrote seven monologues based
on historical folk tales. The sound design team recorded each
actor's voice, and then the actors came into the Digital Media
Design Lab to film their performance. The vocal recordings

and video footage were merged with a student-designed
soundscape and video backgrounds created by student
scenic and media designers. From Feb. 4-7, 2021, Folxtales
was streamed as a free 25-minute loop both online through
Krannert Center's website and projected onto the ceiling of
the Foellinger Great Hall. Due to the inclement weather, parking spaces were reserved on Goodwin Avenue, and patrons
were able to remain in their vehicles, view the video content
from afar, and scan a QR code which linked their devices to
the streamed audio.
