A big hello from Day 1 of the 2011 Edinburgh Festival Fringe!!! I’ve finally arrived and have pretty much settled into my flat which will be My Judy Journals headquarters for the next three weeks. Just spending the next couple of days memorising my script and chasing up some last minute media and publicity opportunities before Jono and the rest of the My Judy Journals gang arrives in town and it all becomes wonderful madness.
I had a little wander up the Royal Mile yesterday and already there was a buzz in the air. I very quickly realised that with the magnitude of people in town, performers really do have to differentiate themselves from the public throng in some way – otherwise no one takes any notice of you. So I have ordered some spiffy red My Judy Journals t-shirts for my crew which should arrive in the next day or two. Yay! If anyone has any other ideas for how we can stand out…please feel free to leave a comment.
That’s it for now…I will leave you with a lovely photo of my view of Arthur’s Seat from my flat and also a link to Part 1 of my Edinburgh Video Blog which is pretty much a tour of My Judy Journals headquarters – sorry if it’s boring – but this was take 5 and I was starting to lose the will to live!
Part 2 coming soon!!!
