Zoetrope was a series of one acts to promote Francis Ford Coppola’s East-Coast literary magazine. I presented the set concept to his daughter Sofia who co-produced it with Gary Marshall at his theater in Burbank that I was the technical director of. The concept was simple: Four one-act plays, four paintings; each of them representing a separate story. When one play was presented, that particular painting would be lit from above and glow brightly, while the other three would be lit dimly from the front so that the “frames” would cast a shadow across the paintings. It was simple and effective and got a positive review in the L.A. Times.
