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

Top 5 Things about day 3 of Fringe 21

  • Volunteering in the beer tent is one of the best things I know of at Fringe. Everyone stops by, especially on a Saturday night. Tonight I had the pleasure of serving alongside Jason Nettle (9/11: We Will Forget) and Mike Maples (The Humor Mill Hysteria Repeats Itself).
  • Threads: the True Story of an Indiana Farm Girl in Vietnam by Tonya Jone Miller from Portland. Certainly one of the great dramatic shows of this year's festival, and all based on a true story. This is on my must-see list when people ask me what I like.
  • On the Nose is a collaboration between an out-of town clowining duo, a former local clown and the producer of last year's hit Onomatopoeia. The show combines a lecture led by two characters with a series of filmed interviews with some of the world's most famous contemporary clowns.
  • Menage-a-Prov is a show put together by Francisco Laboy, Charles Frierman and Darren Vierday from SAK Comedy Lab, with a fresh batch of randomized short-form improv games. I got to go on stage for one of the scenes and was laughing out loud the entire time I was up there. We invented a superhero with racoon super powers (I dug in a trash can to thwart the villain) and my sidekick was a master of blenders and smoothies. Hooray for improv.
  • Sport: 3rd Strike is just as solid as the first two incarnations of the show, though the female character is a different actor than many of the PB&J Productions shows I've seen. Seating in the Yellow Venue was so limited I lost some of the minor effects because of an extreme left wing seat. Still, quite awesome.
  • Bonus: The Spork: A Happy Food Cafe opened up a new food tent today which features fresh food (including fruits and vegetables, hummus, parfaits and lots of yummy goodies from the newly opened cafe inside of Urban ReThink
