I’m sorry that I’m late with this week’s event challenge, so to make up for it we won’t have a deadline for this one (also to make it easier to participate with your Christmas Tree when you’re done with it). Your job is to create a video based on a score supplied by the event artist of the week. Make a video, request a link by email (exqisitecorpsefestival at gmail) to submit your to our dropbox, and be entered to win a free ticket to the festival. (Just one, but but you can win every week!)
Here’s this week’s challenge:
“Christmas Tree Event” by Ken Friedman (circa 1964)
Take a Christmas tree into a restaurant. Place the tree in a seat next to you. Order two cups of coffee, placing one in front of the tree. Sit with the tree, drinking coffee and talking. After a while, depart, leaving the tree in its seat. As you leave, call out loudly to the tree, ‘So long, Herb. Give my love to the wife and kids!’
And this week’s small print:
BE SAFE AND DON’T BREAK ANY LAWS! The Exquisite Corpse is not responsible for any danger (physical or legal) you put yourself or anyone else in to make your submission.
All submissions become property of the Exquisite Corpse Festival and by submitting you also agree to have the video screened at the Festival (whether or not you are this week’s winner).
Winner receives a pass to the 2011 Exquisite Corpse Festival. (No, we’re not being cheap; we’re encouraging you to play again next [and every] week. There’s no limit to how many weeks you can win, so keep submitting and you can win every week!)
