                  I always wondered what a gaffer was. All this time I just thought they were like Samwise Gamgee.

                                                        Jazz music helps give the illusion of a long long time passing , to thoroughly explain using lights for effect.( muted trumpet sighs )

                                                                              • Jake Pollen
