New York, NY |

Hi everybody,

I'm flying down to North Carolina in a couple weeks to teach a video improv workshop at the 6th annual Dirty South Improv Festival. :) It's my first time teaching such a workshop so I'm previewing/practicing it this Saturday in New York. It's free and open to all interested improvising actors, shooters and visualists. Please let me know if you're interested and pass this on to anyone you think would be. If you're a yes or strong maybe, let me know (dan at danwinckler dot com) so I can pre-register you with the security at Atlantic Theater Co Acting School (they're in a new building with Google and there's higher security). It's this Saturday the 18th from 2 to 5 pm. Here's the workshop description:

Improv on video: How is it different from improv on a bare stage? What can you do in a video improv show that is unique to this new hybrid form? Homebrew, grassroots video improv is slowly spreading through American improve communities. Let's spread it faster by sharing ideas and techniques with each other. In this workshop, we will explore video improv techniques employed in the Neutrino Video Projects and other experimental video longforms. Camerawork, in-camera editing, scenework and structure will be explored. If time permits we will touch on networked, streaming video performance and visual manipulation (VJ-ing). Please beg, borrow or steal* a video camera to bring to the workshop: the more cameras we have the more we'll able to play. Improvisers and cinematographers of all experience levels are welcome.

* Well, maybe not steal. Please do your best to have a camera and know its basic functions before the workshop.

Class is limited to 15 students.
