Mynd Productions call for volunteers
Is it A Play With a Website or a Website With A Play?
Look. It Has Wings!
Writers, Programmers, Designers, Producers, Marketing Reps and fellow Internet Enthusiasts, come join this innovative multileveled Theater & Internet Web Site production. PAY-FREE, but we promise one hell of a flight!
About The Production
This is a very stylized media-minded technology suave satire about advertising and marketing. (Think The Truman Show, Brazil, Hudsucker Proxy, AdBusters Magazine) This production is a play with a web site. Or is it a web site with a play?
A young woman is guided through her life by the suggestions of a handheld “electronic friend” she receives as a college graduation gift. This “pal” is motivated by profit margin and will use whatever methods necessary to win her trust, control her buying habits and learn her insights, which will ultimately be used to sell the very device to more unsuspecting consumers with better effectiveness. Behind this manipulative personalized data research tool is a powerful corporation. “Our aim is to make this device appear so innocent and helpful that we can get 2 to 3 of them in every home.” And of course this business has a web site. That’s where YOU come in…
Reclaim Your Passion
Tired of designing and programming for corporate America? Sick of writing the same old drab copy or selling some useless product? Maybe the dot.com downsizing gave you a little extra time? Put your experience, creativity and humor where it will be truly appreciated.
We will be developing, launching and promoting this satirical marketing/advertising website as if it’s the real thing. Come and join like-minded hopeful cynics and help revolutionize the way theater is seen and done in the technology age.
If you are interested in any of the areas listed below in any way at all, call or write now! ENTHUSIASM and INTEREST are the MOST VALUED COMMODITIES.
Oversee the production of the Web Site and/or theater production. Organize and keep the production on track and of course fun.
Responsible for helping design and develop the look and feel of the company, both for stage and Internet. Logo, letterhead, mailers etc. Full branding. (Somewhat stylized and over-the-top.)
Help develop content and company voice. From the history of the company to fictitious advertisements and press releases, there’s plenty of room for all sorts of marketing and advertising satire. Create and or produce your own ads!
Flash/Web Designer/ Programmer
Looking for passionate designer(s) who would like to create powerful visuals that sell. You know how effective good design can be, let’s use those same techniques to mirror and examine the real world. If it works for them, it can work for us.
Write and produce original music and pseudo radio advertisements for the theater production and website. Work closely with web designer and director.
Help push, promote and engineer marketing angles for the website and play. From stickers to flyers, hats, banner ads, link trading etc., there’s plenty of room to get creative. The goal is to give “this corporation” a name and get traffic to the site.
Contact press, both local and national, to gain attention for this technology satire website and play. There is plenty of room to help create a fun and/or serious angle for various newspapers, magazines and radio shows. Let’s make some noise!
Use the Internet to locate already created fictitious/mock ads. From radio voice-overs to well produced satire television commercials and print ads., the goal is to collect as much quality content as possible and gain an audience. (This will also give a backbone to the emerging play.)
Any artists, musicians or interested parties from a theater background that would like to contribute in some way are welcome. It will take a short while until the stage production begins, but please don’t hesitate to let us know your interests and how you would like to contribute.
Because we will be toying with the lines of reality and fiction, it will be neccessary at some point to keep some things legal. This is to both protect our property and be “perceived” as a legitimate company by the powers that be.
Great ideas can truly fly with the right team. With your help, let’s see how far it will take usÖ
Please feel free to send this information along to any or all people you think would enjoy being a part of this endeavor. Thanks :)
