Pacific Television Theater – Rising Tide

This is episode three of Pacific Television Theater, Rising Tide, a none act play about a small skin care products company struggling with the challenges of growth.  It was supposed air live last October 8, but due to technical difficulties it did not go out.  It was recorded however and one of the actors posted it to Vimeo.  This is the first episode in color, and the first to use the green screen for backgrounds.

I did post Rising Tide to YouTube, but they blocked it because the CD I used for the music is copyrighted, even though the music itself is in the public domain.

Last Show Did Not Live Broadcast

My last episode of Pacific Television Theater which was supposed to live broadcast last Saturday night was not able to broadcast due to technical difficulties.  The person in charge of programming at CTV Santa Cruz was not made aware that my show is live.  However the show was performed and recorded, so once I edit out a couple of parts I will be able to post episode 3, Rising Tide, as soon as possible.

Pacific Avenue Theater – Last Call

Here it is!  The debut episode of Pacific Avenue Theater, a live televised drama anthology show, recorded from a live performance at Community Television of Santa Cruz on June 25, 2016.  Episode 1, Last Call, is a one act play that takes place in a neighborhood on a slow Tuesday night.  It is an ensemble piece about people who are pursuing what they want before last call is announced.

And if you enjoyed this little play please consider a small donation to help cover costs, and to help fund future episodes.  Thank you!                                             https://www.gofundme.com/PacificAveTheater

Next episode, a pair of short comedies; Gateway, and Reunion.

 

Live Televised Drama Project Update

For my Santa Cruz CTV live drama project I’m also fundraising with GoFundMe.  Here’s the link:

Pacific Avenue Theater is an exciting project.  The drama and the continuity of performance of live theatre amplified by the electronic visual medium, and a harkening back to the Golden Age of Television which featured some of the best actors, directors, and writers of its day.

The first 30 minute play for the Pacific Avenue Theater is named Last Call, a drama that takes place in a neighborhood pub on a Tuesday night.  I have my cast of six (pictured above) and we’ve begun rehearsals.  Now I have to find props and sets.

WE GO LIVE ON JUNE 25TH AT 8:00PM PDT!

The broadcast will be on Community Television of Santa Cruz, Comcast 27 and Charter 72, but I’m also going to try to live webcast it so anyone outside the Santa Cruz area can watch it.

Hope this works. 🙂

 

 

 

Live Televised Drama Project

Hello folks!  I am currently developing a live televised drama anthology show for Community TV of Santa Cruz.  This was inspired by the live TV dramas from the Golden Age of Television, and is a revival of that fabled medium.

The name of my show is Pacific Avenue Theater, and the first drama we’ll be presenting is a 30 minute play named Last Call.  I have my cast of six actors (in the picture above, from our read through, last Sunday May 22nd), and I’m putting together a crew.

We’ll be going live on Saturday June 25th, at 8PM PDT

I’m also gathering funds to help with the costs.  Please visit this project’s Kickstarter page for more information and please consider a donation, any amount is most welcome.  Thank you!
