This short 3 minute time lapse video shows some of the preparation and set-up that takes place in the days leading up to the big weekend.

The actual run time of the video was about 12 hours. This is a technique called “interval recording” capturing only 2 frames per second. Tricia Cooney, our communications and social media coordinator set up her camera on a wide angle for the day, while shooting close-ups with a second camera owned by Randy Jones, our sound technician.

Besides the lighting, sound, and stage set-up, we have many other behind the scenes volunteers and committee members working energetically on organizing accommodation, feeding and hydrating our crew and performers, parking, and a myriad of other tasks.
