After the great success of Laughing in the Face of… CHER’s next endeavor will be to create a kickstarter video that will promote their work and bring in funding for their next project. In the video they will use photos and video taken from the exhibition to show the work that they can produce. CHER’s main objective is to find empty spaces and give them a new life with the presence of art. Thus their name: Champions of Empty Rooms. They see this more a community service than an artistic opportunity. Any funding that they receive will go towards obtaining spaces and supplies; on top of that they do not take commission from other individual’s sold art pieces.

But before we can even begin filming we needed a solid plan as to what the video would consist of. Thus we had a storyboarding day! Jessie was up in Syracuse checking out a possible place to exhibit. So using the wonders of Google chat we were able to have a conference meeting in Veronica’s living room, graced by the presence of her two cats, Sir Francis Bacon, and Bartholomew.
The meeting concluded with plans for two videos. One will be the actual kick-starter video that will be about 10 min long. It will involve stop motion, similar to Lauren McCarty’s, and will clearly state the purpose and intent of CHER and their fund raising. The second video will be a film noir spoof that will consist of Veronica and Jessie in black and white, over seriously saying things to the camera about CHER. This video will be more around two minutes and will be used as a commercial for CHER rather than a fundraiser. Veronica decided that it would be even funnier if we had dancers in the background dancing overdramatically, so I offered up some of my dancer friends from Uarts. I can’t wait to see the final result because I really love it when different majors get to collaborate on things, especially in a school that has so many different artistic majors.
