#FundingFriday

reelectionCongrats to Re-Election: A Web Series for meeting their $25,000 Goal!

Mid-level campaign staffer Jamie must figure out how to undo an election day defeat in order to escape reliving the day over and over.

UPDATE: I had technical issues and could not broadcast today. I will post their answers soon.

How did they do it? How can you prep a Kickstarter campaign for success? Hear live today at 11am PT.

We’ll also have special guests Diani & Devine, who are currently releasing 1-2 videos a day during their Kickstarter.

Diani & Devine Meet the Apocalypse

Is it harder for two comedians to survive an apocalypse or Hollywood? Diani & Devine spent five months making their initial video (below) & release 1 or 3 new ones every day. You also may just see a familiar face in #Apocatips #14 .

Funding Friday: Single Serving

Single Servings, the web series

single servingsSingle Servings is a web series about that awkward “in between” time where you aren’t really a kid anymore, but you can’t quite call yourself an adult yet either. You don’t have your dream job, or your dream house, or your dream relationship, but youthink you’re getting there. Maybe. The series follows Margo, as she attempts to find a date in under six weeks to her best friend and roommate, Renee’s wedding, while at the same time trying to cope with the idea that life moves forward, and the inevitability that we must all grow up.
And Us…
Christina Benedetto(Creator, Producer, Margo) is a New York based writer, producer, and actress. After graduating with a degree in theatre from UCLA, Christina immediately relocated to The Big Apple, immersing herself in both the theatre and music scene. She has been producing her own one-woman show since she was 16, and in 2010 both wrote and produced a show for the United States USO. Single Servings, her latest project, will be unique in that it is her first venture into the realm of film; and she could not be more excited.
Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota and currently based in Brooklyn, New York, Jessica Rose McVay(Executive Producer, Series Director) is a director, choreographer, and producer committed to bringing classical and American classics alive for the modern audience. She graduated from UCLA’s school of Theater Film and Television with a degree in Theater Arts with a concentration in Directing and a minor in Asian Humanities. Recently credits include Sonnet 94(New York Shakespeare Exchange Sonnet Project), Romeo and Juliet(Taganrog Drama Theatre, Taganrog, Russia) Second AD and Dramaturg Gore Vidal’s The Best Man(Broadway, Dir. Michael Wilson). Her newest venture is into film in the form of a six episode web series called Single Servings.
Leah Bezozo(Co-producer, Renee) is a singer/actress based in New York City, and originally from New Jersey. She studied at UCLA’s School of Theater Film and Television. She’s most noted for the role of Kennedy in HBO’s hit series The Sopranos. Her most recent ventures include Metropolis TV in the Netherlands and the web series Single Servings.

Theatre Trailers: what do you think?

To research Saturday’s workshop, I asked for videos created to promote a live performance. Thanks for all your submissions!

Matthew Hill shooting Tony Duran for "Walking the Tightrope" at 24th ST Theatre.

Matthew Hill filming for “Walking the Tightrope”

Please take a look at these and respond in the comments:

1. How would you describe the show in one sentence?

2. Do you want to see this show after watching the video (assuming you’re in their city)?

Thanks so much. It will help contribute to our conversation on Saturday.

Feel free to link to your videos in the comments as well or via twitter. -CMJ

The Vagrancy Theatre Co. presents Down in the Face of God official trailer.

From Director Holly Derr: This was actually made by the playwright and goes with the show, not the theater, but it’s brilliant. It’s a faux-documentary that exists within the world of the play:

Beto O’Byrne sent from Twitter: The Movement Theatre Company Promo Video for Look Upon Their Lowliness:

From Nancy Dobbs Owen We found that the trailer for War Bride worked really well. We created it as a stand alone short film in a way….:

From Adela Kuehn Admittedly I’m biased. I know these guys and have wanted to see this show for years. Two very different trailers (for different stagings) of the same show.
