where we're at

Well friends, the NVP:TC is officially on indefinite hiatus as of right now. We had a great show (or so we hear) at the Twin Cities Improv Festival this past weekend, and now we're all off to work on different projects for a while.
It was about this time last year when some of us began planning Neutrino Twin Cities, making our initial test movies on weekends in the afternoon and trying to figure out how the hell you improvise on film. It has been a long and sometimes ridiculous road, bumpy but fun and always challenging. Sincere thanks to everybody who worked hard to make the show happen, and who supported the show by coming to see our BLB run, helping with our press materials and everything else. Here are some people who went above and beyond to help us:
Nisa, John and Scott at Metro, Quinton Skinner, Katie and our friends at the Onion, Butch, our lawyer friends in the IDS Tower, and especially all the Bryant-Lake Bowl staff who put up with the weird format of our show and our late night screenings.
If I'm forgetting anybody, please let me know. We're very grateful to all our peeps.

See you at the movies. :)

Lowry tunnel video hijinx

Mike and I shot footage for a pre-show thingy this evening, and it was freaking FUN. If you don't have money enough to go to Valley Fair, try this for a cheap thrill. Get a camera with a flip out viewscreen and a car with a sun roof. Have a friend drive you around a major highway system during the magic hour while you film through the sun roof, leaning back in the passenger side with the viewscreen tilted down towards you.
When I filmed like this, I involuntarily yelped with terror and then giggled like an idiot. When Mike and I switched places and he held the camera, he went "aahhh, holy crap" and then uttered an emphatic "Oh, MAN."

Go HERE for tickets.

It's our last show at the BLB for quite a while. Come support us!!

And the contest results one! No one wins because no one entered. I guess we can't give away free tickets to our show...which usually sells out...Perplexing.

So does this mean our show is so good people refuse to NOT pay for it? That's the only logical conclusion I can see.


Katy Kessler (left) will be one of our runners this month! But let's hope that mean ol' Dr. Zaius (right) doesn't show up!

It's the final BLB performance for the forseeable future. Be there.

Oh, and Fred and Melissa moved in just fine. Thanks to all who wrote in for your concern.

Here's this month's "Free Neutrino Ticket" contest.

This Saturday (05/17/08) the wealthy Fred Beukema, and his lovely wife Melissa, are moving into a glorious new home. The person with the best excuse of why they can't help Fred and Melissa move wins a free ticket.

If you actually help Fred and Melissa move you get four free tickets.

Don't forget: The Neutrino Video Project: Twin Cities - 5/30/08 - Bryant-Lake Bowl - 10:30PM.

Is that the most attention grabbing caption? It's the best I could do at a moment's notice.

Sorry we've been gone for just over a week here. With that...

One BLB show left folks.


Don't miss your chance - go here for tickets. There's going to be a definite change up of the line up (as if April didn't have enough) this month, which always creates chaos and excitement, and that's the way we like it.

A couple new postings are up on the YouTube page. A Qwickticket ad from the mind of James Moore, and a chance to meet the adorable* Troy Zimmerman. Please, check them out, leave a comment, change some lives.

And now, the moment all both of you have been waiting for...Those of us in Neutrino pretty much agree that clips from rehearsals and shows shouldn't be put online because although it's a movie, it's still an improv show first. The exact vibe of that exact audience at that exact time, along with the live music, has as much comedic/emotional impact on the moment as the words and expressions that are coming from our faces do. We feel like by just watching some video clips from the show on your home computer, you're not really getting the whole story, the whole experience, and you, being a judgemental asshole, are judging us incorrectly.

But then there's Cane Man.

Not the funniest thing to ever happen in a NTC show, not the most surprising, or the most whatever. But who are we to rob the world of Cane Man? If we kept it to ourselves then we'd be the assholes. Please, to enjoy...

*Troy genuinely gets mad if we don't refer to him as "adorable"...Rita does too for some reason.
