A Tucson Carol
One Night, One Movie, Second Saturday
ACCESS TUCSON AND STRADA COMPANY CREATE AN ENTIRE FILM
AND YOU ARE THE STAR
TUCSON, Ariz. (Nov. 7, 2014): Access Tucson and Strada Company will create an entire feature length film in one night and you will be the star. A Tucson Carol will be filmed December 13, 2014, at Access Tucson, 124 W. Broadway Blvd in downtown Tucson. The cost of admission is $10 and each patron will receive a part in the film. The evening will also include food trucks, hot cocoa, egg nog, and much singing.
How it works: Creating a script based loosely on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, with Tucson accents, patrons are invited to participate in a community film project. Attendees will be picked in order of arrival to perform short bits or lines in front of the camera or to answer questions about their holiday experiences. Some may want to sing a Christmas carol, some may want to tell about a particularly interesting holiday experience. Everyone will get in the movie. Patrons can appear individually, in groups, with their companies, or any other wassailing group. Admission is only $10. For those who would like to receive a copy of the finish filmed, it is $25.
"After an election and all the enmity, we felt like Tucson needed a positive holiday moment or two. This is non-denominational." says Nicole Scott of Strada Company. Arizona Playwrighting Award winner Michael Fenlason is writing the script. "usually when you have a couple of hundred people in a movie, it's directed by Robert Altman or involves Godzilla. It's a thrill to work with Access Tucson on this project. They're really the heart and soul of community media."
The point is community and having fun. "No one has to be a great actor. At Strada we are dedicated to occasionally being quite silly," says Scott.
Following the editing of this film, Access Tucson will present the movie at a Popcorn Gala before the new year, present the film on line and on Access Tucson's cable channel.
