Update: This idea in on hiatus for now, hopefully someday I’ll be able to come back to it.
It been over a year since I released my first sketch, Who’s the Gift? and since then I’ve only released one other sketch, Vote 4 Me, back in the Fall. Too few and far between I say, but that is going to change. For the past few months I’ve been writing sketches with Anthony Triggs and Laura Miner in anticipation for a new sketch show coming to Horseshoe & Hand Grenade Productions later this year. The show is going to be called Tuxedo Rd. and here is an early copy of the show’s logo:
No one is paying anyone to do this, it’s all for the fun of it. That being said, we are looking for anyone interested in helping out. We need people who want to be in front of the camera (let’s call them “actors”), writers, musicians, graphic designers or anyone who can help out with filming.
Actors – I’m no professional actor myself and we’re just looking for people who want to get in front of a camera. We have a few people lined up for roles already but still need more regulars and could always use people for just a sketch or two.
Writers – We are looking to set up workshops for all the writers to get together and discuss ideas and put scripts together. Very laid back environment.
Musicians – The show needs a theme song and also music to use in the background or in transitions between sketches. Any help here is appreciated whether by bands or individual people. We just have to be sure any music is free of copyrights or we otherwise have permission to use it.
Graphic designers – I try to do what I can with my limited knowledge of Photoshop (see above logo) but we could always use people who know what they are doing. We have some ideas of what we need but are also willing to get ideas from designers.
Crew – We will be using pretty much anyone who is available to help out with filming including the actors on set, but let us know if you want to work specifically with this. Anyone who knows anything about lighting, make-up (yet to use this…), or any other intricacies of filming are very welcome. I’m no Hollywood filmmaker.
