The big 65 has come and gone and I’m still here. Time to take stock, to look back as well as forward. I have definitely designed more designs in the past than I ever will in the future. A rough estimate would be about 150 productions in the past and one definite one in the future. I’ve been very fortunate.
I left college in 1966 and apart from the occaisional ‘resting’ periods between jobs, I have designed all my working life, and I still get a buzz from it. So thats OK.
In this blog (nasty word) I will, when I feel like it, ruminate about the different theatres I have worked for and Television work as well. and try and give a picture of how it has evolved from a personal perspective.
I have not had any professional contact with educational establishments since leaving Wimbledon School of Art but I do know the methods have changed enormously. For a flavour of the times I have written an extented piece that appears on my website at http://www.martinmorley.cymru1.net/page4.html about my time there.
