Self-Selected Super St*rs

MTAA’s Self-Selected Super St*rs
Tuesday, April 29, 2008 at 8pm
at Light Industry


On April 29 from 8PM to 10PM, in a Sunset Park factory, the artist collaboration MTAA shoot and simultaneously screen two films…starring you.

Are you great at off-the-cuff repartee? Look good taking a nap? Able to read bad sci-fi scripts out loud without laughing? Or are you just perfect at hanging out and being you?

MTAA needs you to star in our low budget and barely (if at all) scripted film. Think Chelsea Girls meets Plan 9 from Outer Space while watching Empire. If Michel Gondry’s “Be Kind Rewind” at Deitch Projects is about the positive power of DIY, MTAA’s “Self-Selected Super St*rs” is about the malaise of knowing that all future “it” girls will never really be Edie. It’s about the ever present fear of running out of beer before the night ends.

Here’s how it works:

Two directors/camera operators will set up at Light Industry deep in the heart of Brooklyn. The space will have some cheap/random props and costumes. If you want some acting direction, we’ll have scripts and improv notes ready. If acting isn’t your thing, just come in and be your fabulous self. The shooting will be continuous and casual with both films projected live for your viewing pleasure. Join us for the entire shoot or just walk in for your close-up.

Events take place in Industry City
55 33rd Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenue), 3rd Floor
