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.
Yes, It's finally here! That is to say, Orlando Fringe is here. I would like to present the following list in no particular order, even though it says "top 5". This is also based on my experience of day 1, not of everything about the day.
You'll notice that both shows I saw are from out of town (out of the US, in fact). Here's a tip: go to see any National or International act on the opening weekend of the festival, (that is, people who are not from Florida or the US). The great ones will all sell out next week, as word of mouth spreads. You can be ahead of the curve by taking a chance on an out-of-towner!

Zombie theme at Fringe this year? What!
Drama at Fringe! There was a wildfire not too far away from Orlando during the 2011 Fringe, so Melanie was afraid her accompanist would not be able to make it to her last show of My Pal Izzy.
Luckily, he phoned a few minutes after this video was recorded to tell her he thought he would make it after all.
Mike Besaw from Onomatopoeia tells us how they got involved with the Mud Flappers.
Live music propels the flights of fancy and down-to-earth peregrinations of a hardscrabble hobo. You'll giggle, squeal, and sniffle. Featuring The Mud Flapper Band. Onomatopoeia: sounds like fun.

Melanie stars in My Pal Izzie, featuring the music of Irving Berlin -- http://www.melaniegall.com/Izzy
Irving Berlin, well-known as the composer of 'White Christmas', is one of America's most famous composers. However, not many people know of Berlin's early life and of his struggle to succeed. From a young immigrant just off the boat from Russia to one of the shining lights of Tin Pan Alley, Irving's story is fascinating. This show contains some of Berlin's best early songs, from 'Don't Take Your Beau to the Seashore' to 'If You Don't Want My Peaches'.
