Friday we’re doing the video gong show at the Echo Park Film Center. Here’s how it works — anyone is welcome to bring a video they’ve made.
Everyone in the audience has a button hooked into a diabolical electronic gong-ringing system. When dissatisfaction reaches a fever pitch of 50%, the gong gongs and the video stops. Prizes will be bestowed for the video that survives the longest (most entertaining) and the shortest (most annoying). I did this in Houston this summer and it was very fun, although a video of people chugging beer stayed on for a disturbingly long time. Bring a video.
