Adventures of the CodePoet: SkyDancing

In spring of 2006, I was still starting out as a CodePoet, and I found myself living in a small artist's community named Grainne O'Malley. A small Irish village, and I was given an apartment rent free above an art Gallery. I would be a resident CodePoet for the village, where the other artists could come to me for their scripting needs. It was a good beginning.

One day, at the end of April, a new artist came to Granny. Tall, wearing a black & yellow jumpsuit. This was Dancoyote Antonelli. He was opening a small space in Granny to show his work.

Soon he approached me for some scripting. On May 2, 2006 DC and I entered into a formal arrangement for some pretty simple scripts, for a very low price, L$300. He drew up a contract for this job, and this surprised me -- all my other work had been done with handshake deals. But I accepted, and he even named our partnership: ZenCoyote Ltd.

I later found out that it was less a job and more of an audition to see if we could work well together. I must have passed, for here we are in 2008, and DC & I are STILL collaborating.

Our latest collaboration is the THIRD incarnation of the ZeroG SkyDancers perfomance entitled Second Spring. I am the technical director of the SkyDancers, and provide most of the scripted elements for the performance. This latest production sees some of our best work yet.

DC also has me working as a host for these shows, greeting, and getting people seated, and helping with client settings. The show runs through March, and I do encourage you to come if you can. If you do make it, you will most likely see me there.

Here is the trailer for Second Spring:
