Polyp and Corbin Take Over

 
Polyp and Corbin Take Over depicts the struggle of a young man and woman to make it in a world centered on the act of audience capture.

They abandon the poor city, where the only work left to do is entrepreneurial, lo-fi, hand to mouth, semi-desperate mediamaking
They embrace the alternative, the private “community preserves” where your entire world is a subscription, and everyone’s expected to get along.

They are fish out of water in both situations but in spite of themselves, they play the audience capture game as well as anyone.

Screening History

Summer 1999
S. 4th St., Williamsburg, NYC
I showed a rough cut at my apartment for the first time. Teressa, Bryan, and Jennifer were there, and a couple of other friends. They were amazed that it actually looked like a movie and even though they all worked on the film, it entertained them. Very satisfying, but still lots of work to do.

Fall 1999:
Knitting Factory, NYC
Part of a group show of artists working at Harvestworks Digital Arts Center.

June 28, 2000
Brookline Access TV Studios, Boston
Sound was bad, but there were about 30 strangers who seemed to like it. I enjoyed speaking afterwards.

July 12, 2000
Film Conditioner, Siberia Bar, NYC
Local joint that I later edited a documentary about. First time I met these guys.

October 2000
Austin Film Festival, Ritz Theatre
The 'premiere' for much of the cast and crew. It was the first screening of the movie in its final form.

March 2001
14th Annual Dallas Video Festival
Very good response here, and the best screening conditions so far. One guy yelped at the end. It was a good yelp.

June 2002
F***ing Fabulous Film Festival, Seattle
I couldn't attend this one, but the organizers said it was well received. They showed all 3 films I currently had available, which floored me.
