Briefly, the background to the below email is that Impose and Viva Radio wen=
t on a 21 day “tour” stopping for different shows in 18(?) cities and now we=
have a wealth of video, audio and still photography and we are considering =
foregoing a traditional full length tour documentary for a more fragmented p=
resentation of our media.

(Please forward this to Billy. I don’t have his email.)

So a=
fter meeting for a few hours, we’re pretty excited about our plan. In order =
to take advantage of the wealth of material we’re sitting on, we don’t want =
to bury everything in a traditional full-length DVD. Instead, we’d like to t=
ake advantage of post-production DVD menu programming to make all of the mat=
erial accessible. This is a novel way to represent footage and makes more se=
nse for the many fragments we have. It also makes it a whole lot easier to e=
dit this footage, as we wont be worrying about a continuity that doesn’t exi=

The format we’ve devised, we’re pretty sure, doesn’t exist yet e=
ither (for this sort of documentary-style footage). People are totally going=
to bite our idea.

So here it is:

The dvd will be visually rep=
resented by a ‘map’ of our tour route based on the image attached below desi=
gn by Guy Debord.

Upon selecting any city, a new screen opens that d=
isplays selectable text of our separate edited pieces, which we have outline=
d roughly below. That means this isn’t set in stone. If you read through thi=
s and see things we forgot to include, please let us know.

The desig=
n for this ‘map’ is still open for discussion. We have a few ideas.

When rolling over a city, audio will play (many of Sheri’s tape-recorded so=
und bytes will work here)
– Image and text could also pop up on the main=
map when a particular city is selected
– Incidental footage unique to a=
given city  could play continuously within that city’s menu screen
– This structure allows for playlists for audio as well as slide shows for N=
ate Dorr’s photography.
– Profiles for Viva and Impose should be accessib=
le on the main menu item, with links to  internal menus for each compan=
y. The profiles should include (humorous) bits on each of the on-camera pers=
onalities, as well as footage explaining the purpose of the trip (i.e., Dere=
k trying to tell a hick what exactly he’s doing in the middle of Texas)
-Potentially a mission sort of statement about the title of the dvd THIS IS =

(including use of Sheri’s audio, Billy’s audio, Nate Dorr’s photography=
, and video footage)
