My End of the Barnyard

The folks at Nosedive Central have been filming some video sketches to play at our August 10 fundraiser party, and so far, the rough cuts of two of them and the dailies for one have made most of us giggle.

Then again, we are simple-minded dorks and our own biggest fans.

With a little luck, we should be able to finish filming the third sketch this weekend and have them all edited in their final form by next Friday. At least, we better have them all finished by Friday.

These have been a whole lot of fun to make. The whole process of trying to figure out how to shoot what we need to shoot in a very finite period of time is a new challenge for us and incredibly fulfilling. I'm not saying Nosedive is going to be giving up on theatre (far from it), but I wouldn't be surprised if we tried (a year or two down the road) shooting more ambitious projects.

We shall wee, we shall see.

I've now acquired my tickets for the Fringe shows to review for NYTheatre.com and have other shows on top of them to see (including but not limited to Dressing Miss Julie, Lucid, Hail Satan and Susan Gets Some Play), so it's looking as though August will be a full play-going month for Yours Truly. I just hope I can get around to seeing all of them.

Anyway, I'll keep you posted on the Nosedive happenings as they unfold.

Liking to watch,

James "Chance The Gardener" Comtois

Wait a minute!

"Susan and her best friend Jay try to find Susan a boyfriend by holding auditions for an imaginary production in hopes of finding Mr. Right."

Susan Gets Some Play has the same plot as the Miike film Audition!

Onstage Amputations ahoy! Kiri kiri kiri!

Hahaha...you're absolutely right, Mike! Although something tells me Adam is going in a...slightly different direction from the Miike film.
