Posted by Janine Brown Studio | Bridgeport
A diverse group of people - all ages, all nationalities, all genders (LGBTQIA+ welcome!)
A video portrait project with a working title of "I AM..."
To create a video installation that shows the diversity of our world and hopefully to create understanding among humans.
What do I need to do?
The project entails each participant to write their own "script". The script would be approx. 100 statements about themselves. The statements could be as basic as "I am a woman/man/non-binary/etc." to political "I am a democrat/republican/independent/an anarchist/etc". The more varied - the better. They can include your nationality, descriptions of yourself, I am "not" statements, etc. Each statement must start with "I am..." The extensive list of "I am's" are meant to provide a verbal picture of each participant.
Once the script has been written, participants would schedule a time to film either at my studio at The American Fabrics Arts Building, 1069 Connecticut Avenue, Bridgeport, CT 06607, at The Norwalk Art Space or another mutually agreeable location from now until October 15th.
Filming takes anywhere from 1/2 to 1 1/2 hours. Each artist will be filmed and voice recorded from two camera angles and be asked to wear your favorite tee shirt (if your not a tee shirt fan - that's ok - wear your favorite shirt).
If English is not your native language - that is ok. Please create the "script" in your native language and provide English translation for captions added during editing.
Can I see what it will be like?
This is a rough draft as an example only - you come up with your own "I am" statements about yourself. Quirky, touching, etc whatever it is that best describes who you are....
Sign a Video release form (those under 18 must get a parent to sign the form on their behalf) that gives permission to use your likeness, voice, etc to be used for the project, to promote the project, and for the exhibition in the project.
Must show proof of Covid 19 Vaccination.
Is there any compensation?
Unfortunately, I do not have funding/grant funds for this project.
How do I sign up?
You can send an email to Janinekbr@aol.com or call me at 203.685.5986.
