OK, this one's pretty ambitious, but I know nothing is beyond this community.
I've always loved heists. And all the best heists are pulled by teams in formal dress.
The simple idea is this: a team of HitRECorders are pulling a heist at the town hall, using the Fall Formal as a diversion to escape the attentions of the mark. Ideally, this would compose of several short video sequences - maybe even some subtle live performance - peppered throughout the evening, at different points in the heist.
Obviously we can play around with geography, so let's say that the Town Hall shares a wall with a building containing a vault - inside the vault there's a valuable item hidden. Now, I'm sure we don't want to say that HitRECord is home to criminals, so I was thinking the item could be a creation of HitRECord - maybe a DVD of MMM or something similar, which would be needed for the finale of the show - that has been stolen by a villain (this character could become the villain of the comic book people are working on).
The team needs the following experts:
- tech (the one who sits in front of a computer, often the sassiest of the team)
- getaway driver/ lookout (could be two separate characters)
- team leader
and, preferably, Joe, who would keep coming backstage to check on the progress of the heist (this would be a great way for Joe to get offstage occasionally without interrupting the flow, by using pre-recorded clips here).
New ideas are coming to me constantly, so I'll keep updating this RECord.
