The Exquisite Corpse Project (Audience Award: Dances With Films,Audience Award: Dances With Films, Best Director: LA NewWave), a documentary film experiment from sketch comedy group Olde English is set to screen for one night only in Philadelphia, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers on May 2nd at Landmark Ritz at the Bourse. But there’s a catch! The film will only be shown if the screening reaches their goal number of reserved tickets (and needs 16 more in the next 24 hours to reach their goal). To help the group, and have your own chance to see this award-winning film you can make a reservation online.
Here’s what group member Justin Noble had to say about their project:
The film is about five comedy writers (supahfamous sketch comedy group Olde English) writing a feature film together. They write 15 pages each, but before writing their section of the script, they’re only allowed to read the previous 5 pages. And when they finished, they produced that movie. The result is this comedy/drama/thriller/action movie/buddy picture/heist flick hybrid that somehow works, and the whole thing is interwoven with behind-the-scenes glimpses at the collaboration process. In the end, it really has powerful things to say about how to work with friends in the arts, particularly comedy. It’s a must-see for people interested in careers in comedy, screenwriting and filmmaking, but anyone who likes to laugh with enjoy it.
