JOURNALING: On Christmas Eve (2020) we watched on our computer a presentation by Columbus Children’s Theatre of an original musical “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the normal stage production was scrapped and, instead, they produced their first feature film. Casting and rehearsals were conducted over video conferencing. A crew of three filmed scenes with as few actors at a time as possible at various locations including in front of a green screen. A production team then edited the scenes to give the illusion the characters were interacting in person. It was delightful and an easy way to support one of the local businesses hard hit by the quarantine.
