James Brown, prod.

Production Description

Casting comedians and improv experts to create and perform comedic fantasy-politics campaigns against Tea Party members of Congress 2014. Producer states: "If you think that granting fertilized eggs constitutional rights is funny and you can trash-talk Tea Party members of Congress, then we want you to appear at Zygote Party Tour public appearances. On a serious note, H.R. 23 will make the morning after pill illegal - a murder weapon - making women subject to prosecution for attempted infanticide if they take a Plan B pill. The scope of the fantasy-politics campaigns will depend on fundraising efforts such as donations, crowd funding of campaign projects, digital download sales of campaign materials, and paid memberships for access to insider information and media not available to the general public. Self-starters will generate their own material and simple social-media video during the campaign primary rounds, and the LA-based production crew will travel to the Congressional districts where the primary challengers are successful at drawing crowds to their campaign events."

Rehearsal and Production Dates & Locations

Rehearsal and production dates & locations will be scheduled once the first round of candidates are selected. Producer states: "The Zygote Party Tour finalists will appear at the Zygote Party National Convention in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, during Mardi Gras, 2014."

Compensation & Union Contract Details

Producer states: "Travel expenses (including per diem) and a daily rate, or appearance fee comparable to SAG ultra-low budget feature-film scale or new media scale provided. Compensation for amateur and semi-professional performers will be individually determined according to their fan base and audience appeal. Performers who end up on screen during the film will be credited and be retroactively compensated according to SAG guidelines. It's likely that the Zygote Party Tour web-series will be registered as a SAG new media production in 2014, so SAG eligible and SAG financial core performers are welcome to audition and perform during the 2013 candidate selection primaries, but SAG members should wait until 2014 production auditions begin."
