I headed down to Toronto a little bit early in order to see the Neutrino Video Project. Its an improvised 60-minutes long form movie. They go out and film scenes on DV tape, and have runners bring it back to the theatre, where scenes are played in between the Neutrino screensave that plays on the main screen for most of the time.
I was curious what the quality of this show was compared to our attempts at longform. Honestly, I was a little disappointed. Despite the performers being genius actors and comedians, the plot was just as muddled and chaotic as usual. This actually gives us a ton of confidence.
Whats the main drive of improvisation, for me? I mean, I can’t expect to clevely mimic the plots of scripted movies. I do like the unpredictably – the chance of following the more chaotic route, the chance of fucking up. Hm…
More to come.
