BLACKOUT - Comedy short / bumper concept
Two people are hanging out during a blackout, playing a board game, chatting, candle light/torches illuminated faces. One tells a being in the dark related joke, the other person moans like it isn't funny but we hear a laugh and "ha! Good one" (or the like) muttered from the darkness. Faces freeze, wide eyed in candle/torchlight. Lights out.
I heard a radio story a few years back that ambulance officers/paramedic's perform CPR to one of two songs in their heads, with a distinct 1, 2 beat in order to keep the best rhythm. If they thought you were going to make it it would be to Staying Alive and if they didn't think you were going to make it it would be to Another One Bites the Dust. Either way the beat is a strong steady 1, 2, 1, 2. The British Heart foundation did an ad campaign about CPR using Staying Alive however have left out Another One Bites the Dust... which isnt that surprising :)
Just a thought regarding NUMBER TWO.
Ideas: Coupledom vs. Singledom
- Adam & Eve (there wasn’t all that much going on before they hooked up)
- Lost socks
- Middle child / being the second child / youngest of two
- Second jobs (I have two and I’d be happy to rant about why! *grumbles stupid economy)
- Second life (Friend knew a guy at uni that sold his entire life on ebay and started again
- Surviving illness / accident. Starting over)
- Second chances
- 2nd place / runner up
- Two left feet
- Two sides to every story
- Always the bridesmaid…
TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE - Comedy short / bumper concept
Creature/person with two heads, constantly disagreeing and making snarky comments at each other whilst trying to complete a task. Funny dialogue, could cut to these two heads through the ep as their argument escalates. End scene one says "I'm sick of you, I want to be alone" (or the like) and tries to leave but obviously can't cos they share a body. Ba dum tisch :)
Sojushots Two-faced is a great image to work with, resourced below
I haven't attributed the quote to Joe as I like it anonymous, the thinking that there is an us and them without it being any one particular individuals experience. Collective pre conceived notions vs. reality. Happy to attribute though if the community thinks its best :)
I dont know who the woman is that told the story at the Orpheum so I can't resource her. Anyone know?
Anyone live or lived in the most northern parts of the globe? What is it like living with continuous daylight? How do communities live without night/darkness?
Watching Joe's DARK request vid I instantly (well the instant he turned the light off to be precise) thought of Dr Jeykll and Mr Hyde which is, hooray, hooray in the public domain!
DJMH has been REmixed many many many times out there with a little attention on HR and it is a perfect place to start exploring the dark side of ones self - and whether thats a good, bad or dare I say it, healthy thing.
I do not propose to redo DRMH as is, thats too easy. Considering the possible limitations on time for final RECords for HRonTV2, I propose a VOICE OVER of a POEM or MUSIC video (Devinjguisande contributed the track Mrs. Jekyll & Hyde which is a great base to build on, make it grittier, dirtier) with ANIMATED ILLUSTRATIONS twisting and contorting into new forms representing the dark of ones self.
It would be cool to have VIDEO / PHOTOGRAPHY contort into ILLUSTRATIONS.
Illustrative styles I recommend for this are all resourced. Ahh, Gothic Romanticism *swoon*
