Long story short: Ishu, one of my classmates from improv, was doing a project for Arlington Independent Media (AIM), a non-profit organization in Northern Virginia which provides community members training in television production. She asked a couple of us to do an improv show for her project, which would later be broadcast on public access television. Needless to say, because I have no shame, I volunteered.
So last night, a couple of us went down to the AIM studio to be filmed. And boy, was it a trip. It took a little while to get used to doing improv for people other than our classmates, but ended up having a blast.
It was awesome to be out there performing again. Our scenes involved everything from working in under-funded schools to outsourcing teaching to India. There was other stuff, too, but I was surprised how in the span of 20 minutes our scenes went from being TV-G to TV-MA. Go figure.
Once I get the DVD, I’ll make some clips and put them on Youtube. Well, the G-rated parts, anyway.
P.S. If you’re looking for something cool to do this fall, I would highly recommend taking a class with Washington Improv Theater (WIT). I believe registration for classes is now open.
