Introduction, Updated 10/12

Welcome to the
IMS Virtual Studio

 Thank you for visiting the IMS Virtual Studio. As you can see this blog has been created using Blogspot and is hosted by Google.  If you are familiar with the way this blog works, please bear with me as I post a few guidelines here.

I have created an Index of Subjects which addresses a few subjects.  Some of them are not up to date or even linked yet, but eventually I will manage to get it all updated. 

The Blog Archive contains a listing of posts that have been made to this blog and you may care to review them for  subjects of interest. 

 I have have not had much time to label these postings, but there is a listing of  Blog Subject Labels.

These items are all located in the column to the left. 

 If you click on the title Image of the Mind Studios it will take you to the front page which contains the most recent postings or the subject of primary interest.

Various pages, including this one, are updated periodically, but are not posted according to the date and will need to be located by way of either a link I send you, or one in my email signature, or in the headings listed in the subject or archive. 

The search function will also assist in locating a particular subject or posting.

I do try to post here on a regular basis, but it is difficult to keep everything up to date. Gradually, the subjects will be addressed and the links will be installed. 

If an subject has not been discussed, or addressed in awhile and you would like to do so, please send me an email.

I use this site as the primary posting location on the web and I have chosen to use this site essentially as a newsletter.  I do not invite comments on this blog, because I am using it as a forum to provide information and not discussion. 

If you need to discuss an item I am happy to do so in a private conversation, which may in fact spur a posting herein if it is appropriate. I also use Facebook and you are welcome to friend me there is you want to.

You will find that some of the dialogue is rather lengthy and tiresome to read in one sitting. I tend to be rather verbose, but this is unavoidable, since the information provided is two-fold. 

These postings are intended to clarify & refine production development and implementation, while providing a comprehensive overview of the essential facts in both a general sense and, in some instances, a quite specific way for both the projects and the operation of IMS. 

It is my intention to review and edit the material as production moves forward, but also to create an archive of a projects progression. So even though the material will change over time, I hope to also maintain an archive as a log book. My objective is to educate the people who may someday associate themselves with one or more of the IMS Projects that are here presented.

For those of you who are in a position to review the proposals and make decisions regarding involvement at the various levels, I provide this information for the purpose of supporting the projects we are discussing. By being specific of the facts I am striving to provide you with an overview of Image of the Mind Studios, my background and other projects that are part of the IMS repertoire.
I will include links for partners in our projects only on request or if it is appropriately relative to what we are doing. I also do not use this blog for advertising anything other than IMS Projects.

I do invite your comments & discussion, but I ask that you do so via e-mail, so that we can have private conversations. 

Please be specific in your Subject heading or the email may be discarded without being read.  As I said, I do attempt to keep this site somewhat up to date, but as you can see from the volume of postings and the inferences within, that this is no small task . I do have to sleep and eat, occasionally.
So I hope you enjoy reading the information I have posted here and, even more, I hope you may like to become involved in one or more of our projects. Because after all, as you will see, everything seems to be a humongous task requiring a lot of people and significant resources to succeed.

And in case you wonder about the magnitude & practicality of some of the projects posted here, remember that:
I am a Conceptual Artist and my medium is the canvas of the Mind.  

The future of Cinema Under the Stars

Visit: Cinema Under the Stars for discussion about this program. All activities in the Meadow Amphitheatre are on hiatus. This and other programs will center around a new portable stage which we are building and will be presented at various locations.

The Meadow Amphitheatre

The Meadow Amphitheatre has been dismantled due (in large part) to vandalism.

We expect to rebuild a portable version of the stage, which will be available on a rental basis. Look for further information to appear on the web pages linked below or send an email to

A tour of The Meadow Amphitheatre has been moved to it's own site and there is a page on Facebook titled "The Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park".

Please refer to The Shakespearean Journal for the commentary & discussion regarding efforts to rebuild the stage."

Any information or photographs regarding this stage activity may be found at these three locations and postings will depend somewhat on the interest shown by other people.
