Lights, Camera, Reaction
Live video shorts with no script, no real actors, and no plot. Sounds as palatable as Mike Myers in a thong, but according to Phoenix Neutrino Project director Mark Jordan, its pretty funny stuff. The audience plays a role in the filming, like a home video where [they] live vicariously though the exploits of someone else, he explains. Its a crazy process, and one that sometimes invites trouble. During one filming, a city cop collared an actor hitting another actor with a traffic cone, then noticed the camera. It was like he had practiced it 100 times before, Jordan says. With a slight smile, [the cop] said, I was just doing my job. The audience went crazy for that scene.
