Video: “Fishing for Men”

In June, my short (and dark) piece “Fishing For Men” was performed in the annual Gone in 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays in New York. (You can find performance photos here.)

Producer Rose Bonczek asked if it would be OK if she had the piece turned into a short film to enter in the MSN/New York Television Festival Short Form Storytellers Challenge.

Naturally, I said “yes.”

Here’s the result. We didn’t win, alas, but I still like the film.

Earlier, I posted photos from the filming.

Anthony Ponzio was the director; Galyn Clarkson-Farrell was the crew.

Mickey Hart and Collin McConnell were the actors.

Here’s the result. Well, sort of. I haven’t seen the actual video yet, but Rose shares these photos from the shooting: Read the rest of this entry »

My dark piece “Fishing for Men” was produced in the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival in New York on June 7-8, 2013.

Here are some photos, courtesy of Rose Bonczek. That’s Chris Donovan at left as “Sunny” and Mickey Ryan at right as “Brooder.”

The pictures tell the story — although if you want the synopsis, it’s here.

I also had three scripts done in the U.K. version of the same festival; details on that here with a rehearsal photo from England here.

Umm, fishing for men, that is.

Uh, yeah . . .

And lest we not forget those behind the scenes -- and out in the rain!

Three scripts to be produced in the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival, UK edition

gi60

I will have three scripts produced next month in the U.K. edition of the “Gone in 60 Seconds” Festival of one-minute plays.

I already have one script slated for the U.S. version, which will be June 7-8 at Brooklyn College in New York. That script is “Fishing for Men.”

The U.K. version will be June 8 at the Viaduct Theatre, Dean Clough, Halifax, Great Britain.

Here are the three scripts that will be done:

THIS IS THE CAPTAIN SPEAKING
An airline pilot addresses his passengers, warning them of some danger ahead. Is he suicidal? Cast: One male.

THREE TREES TALKING
Three trees contemplate the question: If they were human, what kind of human would be they? Cast: Three, non-gender. Running time: One minute.

THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD
A man tries to compliment his girlfriend and promptly gets in in trouble, and his clarifications only make the matter worse. Cast: One male, one female. Running time: One minute.

“This is the Captain Speaking” and “The Whole Wide World” have previously been done as staged readings at No Shame Theatre in Roanoke, Virginia.

“Fishing for Men” to be produced at Gone in 60 Seconds Festival in New York

gi60

I got word this week that my short script “Fishing for Men” has been accepted into this year’s Gone in 60 Seconds Festival.

This is an annual festival of one-minute plays, some of which are produced in New York, others in Great Britain.

“Fishing for Men” will be in the New York version, June 7-8 at Brooklyn College — details here. This will come a little more than week before another one of my scripts hits New York — the staged reading of my full-length script, “The Ballad of Alejandro Lopez,” on June 17 by the Barefoot Theatre Company.

You can find videos of some my previous work in earlier editions of the festival under the “video” category.

Here’s my synopsis of the script — which previously had a staged reading at No Shame Theatre in Roanoke, Va., in spring 2012:

FISHING FOR MEN
A brooding man sits by the water, waiting on a victim to come along. Cast: Two males.
