This is my first year of festivals and I'm finding myself fixated on trying to manage two things:
1. Scheduling - show deadlines, applications & show dates. I can't seem to get them all in one place that makes sense for me. (FYI - I do better with paper - it's the whole out of sight, out of mind thing with computers) What kind of system do you use to keep track of everything? Or do you just wing it?
2. Show fees - trying to stay solvent with all of those checks floating around out there is giving me ulcers. How do you do it? Is everybody living on credit and overdraft protection this time of year? How do you deal without knowing who's going to cash which check when?
I'd love to hear from everybody on how to manage these things, especially the old timers (pardon the expression). I'm convinced that there has to be a way to do it that doesn't include ramen noodles and sleepless nights.
