I recently had an ALD Toolkit reader write me saying that he had left his copy of the ALD Toolkit at school and wanted to ask for Assistant Kit supplies for Christmas! Funny... it seems like only yesterday that I asked my parents for portfolio pages for Christmas during grad school. I remember clearly the look on their faces of, "...really? That's what you want?" LOL!
But let's face it! Theatrical design is not an inexpensive profession! Whether it's software, a new laptop, or assistant's kit supplies... it can bleed you dry quickly. Especially as a student! So there's no harm in asking for pencils, highlighters, and some spare batteries for the holidays. After all, they not only make great stocking-stuffers, but there are so many items that extended family members can contribute in small ways that add up to a pretty great kit!
So for all of you who left your Toolkit at school, you can download the Assistant Kit supplies appendix here!
Happy holidays, everyone!
