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.
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: New videos added above, and now a Vimeo playlist as well.
Full days at the festival are so awesome because you get to see so many shows. The night ended really strong with:
Tonya Jone Miller plays a character based on her mother in the dramatic and gripping Threads: The True Story of an Indiana Farm Girl in Vietnam in the Patron's Room.
