2014 Fringe Video Playlist

Every year I compile a list of all the Fringe videos I can find. I used to post more regularly to this website, and I did some fun podcasts and other posts here, now social media has allowed me to "lazy blog" and just collect other stuff.

This playlist starts out with a 1 hour cut of the Local Artists Preview from April 14th. I add as many videos as the artists send to me, and I welcome any submissions to rprice *AT* ryanpricemedia.com

Several out of town shows have already submitted: BITE, Spitting in the Face of the Devil, Desperately Seeking the Exit, An Illiad, Black Stockings, and Shakespeare's Histories.

I also have a bunch of local shows: Queer Diaries at the Fringe, Alex Rapattoni's 60 Minutes of Magic, Jekyll n' Hyde: a rap musical, The British Invasion, Glory Days, Escape from Baldwin Park, Tappin' and Yappin', and of course MY SHOW, CraigsLUST: A Sexploration.

2013 Fringe Video Playlist

Every year I locate as many video promos related to Orlando Fringe Festival. This year I found a TV show that airs on the local Orange TV cable channel featuring a documentary about Dog Powered Robot, and a short feature about Fringe 21 with Michael Marinaccio and Genevieve from Kid's Fringe.

The very first video in the list is a recap from the Fringe at the Hard Rock fundraiser earlier this year. It was a great spectacle, and the recap hardly does it justice, but not for lack of trying by the filmmaker, who did a great job.

There are also promos for local shows like Double Happiness and Happy Pink Girl, as well as out-of-town acts like Gemma Wilcox, A Mind Full of Dopamine, and Kurt Fitzpatrick. All the videos I could find are here.

EDIT: The Orlando Sentinel has a roll of all the 2-minute previews from the local shows.

Edit: New videos added above, and now a Vimeo playlist as well.

Top 5 things about day 4 of Fringe 21

Full days at the festival are so awesome because you get to see so many shows. The night ended really strong with:

  • Skill Focus: Burlesque had an appearance from the lead character in the "Portal" games and an anthropomorphized GLADOS took her chrome clothes off to open this video-game themed version of Orlando's own nerd burlesque show. They replaced a show that pulled out of the Orange Venue, so they need as many scantily-clad butts in seats as they can get. Fringe Page
  • The Habit is in a similar boat - a veteran of several Fringe festivals, Wilson Loria added his show literally at the last minute when an international performer was denied a visa. Go see his excellent show. You won't be disappointed
