We think Andy Warhol's 1965 film "Vinyl" is super.  Warhol adapted the Anthony Burgess novel "A Clockwork Orange" a full 6 years before Kubrick's version.  It's super.  So we've decided to remake it.  But remaking a film is expensive and difficult and time-consuming.  And we're not filmmakers.  And we're not big fans of recorded media.  And we're not fans of singular vision.  We like collaboration.  We like watching artists who know that their visions will be foiled, agendas blocked, try with enthusiasm anyway.  We want to see brilliant people rapidly maneuver around constraints.  So we've decided to remake "Vinyl", but actually we're going to let other artists remake it for us.  We will restage the film as a live performance.  And at the end of the performance, we will have a finished product that could be called a film.  We're remaking "Vinyl" by breaking it into parts.  We're remaking it by unmaking it.  This is how:
 
In theater A, the "Sound Stage", the audience will witness film production in action, video cameras capture 6 directors directing 6 factory-esque models cum actors.  Without speaking, each director must frantically communicate what they want their assigned actor to do.  The directors are passing on direction from the "Studio Head", who they are hearing in their closed circuit headphones - he's giving notes and watching "Vinyl" in real time.  He may or may not be eating fried chicken.
 
In theater B, the "Focus Group" the audience interjects in the creative process. There is a projection of the actors in theater A and composers improvise and perform a live score as they watch.  Concurrently, the voice of the Studio Head, not heard in theater A, is broadcast for the audience in theater B.  A camera with a direct line to the Studio Head roams the audience capturing "feedback" for what the directors should do next.
 
And from the lobby, the "Screening Room", the audience can imbibe, deconstruct, and opine about the entire process. The finished video and audio from both theaters are projected onto a translucent screen.  A VJ/editor cuts and merges feeds from all cameras to create the finished film, live with soundtrack, all in real time.  Simultaneously, all this craziness is webcast on the Seattle School website www.seattleschool.net .  The audience can move around freely throughout the whole facility to see different constrained perspectives of the whole filmmaking process - a very weird, Rube Goldberg version of the filmmaking process.
 
The show ends when Vinyl ends.  Everyone is invited to stay after for fresh waffles, a Seattle School tradition, and general drunkenness, a Seattle School compulsion.  Yes, there will be Cool Whip.
