Really what I mean is, HEY EVERYONE! (but RegularJOE, pay attention...)
So LIVING STORIES, ahem...
I just got done watching the live stream of the first Summer in the City show from my Brooklyn apartment. Uber wonderful, and I can't wait to see what people do with the RECordings they got. Looks like the raw material from that glorious hour is:
--tiny story voice recordings
--video of Joe talking
--video of some excellent audience participation
--video and audio of two excellent musicians
However, it is my contention that there is still a big unexploited opportunity here, something that could really take advantage of a hundred cameras recording from every conceivable angle:
FILMING A LIVE STORY ON STAGE
This could be any number of things. It could be as simple as
....a Tiny Story getting done as performance art
...Or maybe someone writes a script, Joe grabs a few willing audience members, and asks them to act it out improv style in front of a white wall as he narrates.
...Or perhaps Joe brings a couple professional actors to perform a script someone posted.
AND THE AUDIENCE GETS TO SHOOT IT.
Think of the incredible raw footage we could generate, and then what could be done with it in the hands of the brilliant artists in this community...
Intrigued? Post your ideas!
If this gets enough attention, maybe RegularJOE will look at the proposals and utilize a couple in the next two New York City PIANOS events.
Wouldn't that be cool?
