Last week, I woke up with the idea of writing and recording monologues. I pictured characters from #Eudaimonia giving little 3-6 minute confessional moments into their own camera. Almost ‘what if they were on social media?’ Or something like that.
I reached out to a few friends who I knew would do an excellent job performing the characters. They all agreed and within hours, the first performances were in my inbox.
How was I going to present these? Who was going to watch an out of context, never read the series, monologue from a writer and performer they don’t know?
I put most of these concerns out of my head. Since I have a youtube channel, I figured, sure, “Episode Zero Presents.” This gave me a framing structure. For intro and outro images, I dropped in the Seekers’ Tarot card I designed for the character. For music, I sat down with broken kids’ toys as otherworldly synths and low-fi audio I love so much. The results are amazing. There’s a few more still pending upload this week.
Stay tuned. Be good. Ask me anything to show that you are still with me on this adventure.
Your fiend for life,
