Join Us & Make History!
This project is a unique, one-of-a-kind experience. In addition to the controversial nature of the Stage Play, the fact that we are forced to produce it as an underground operation is unprecedented.
It will only be performed once, and filmed. Once. the film is edited, it will be submitted to short film festivals and/or released
You can be a part of this historic event if you believe in Free Speech and have a great sense of humor. You can choose to remain anonymous or use your real name.
We are looking for male and female actors, as well as crew and helpers in various capacities. If you are interested please contact me so I can provide a detailed explanation of the project and answer any questions you may have, as well as a copy of the script.
The Original Plan
We are going to set up a quick stage in the middle of a busy location and gather an audience. We will then perform and film the short stage play “No Pictures Please!” We will take down the stage and disappear before anyone has a chance to object.
This is Performance Art using Guerilla Tactics. As near as I can discover, this has never been done before!
Check out a couple of my books for sale on Amazon. Just click on the cover.
So since we were shut down by the police in Wynwood, Florida, I have decided to create a documentary about the whole process, interspersed with videos of scenes from the Play taken at the rehearsal, and graphics and videos pertaining to free speech in the entertainment industry.
The only thing I can guarantee is that the documentary will be surprising.
There are several reasons for this decision:
1.It is not possible to replicate the original cast. The casting issues are what caused this project to take almost two years. The fact that it came together at all was a miracle. I don’t think it will happen twice. 2.Virtually the entire Play was recorded from beginning to end. 3.The documentary will be more interesting and fun than a simple film of the performance, and include many of the elements that went into the production, such as the Indiegogo campaign, some animation that was created, and other items as well. 4.The fact that the production was shut down by the police fits with the theme of the Play, which is about Free Speech. 5.While the folks at Storycrafter Studio have generously offered to provide a venue, safety is still a major concern. There were reasons we tried to do the Play spontaneously as Guerilla Theater, and those reasons are still in effect. The risk is too great.
I think this will be a very interesting documentary and I plan to submit it to various contests and such. It will probably take a month or two to put it all together. Stay tuned.
