Week #1 Show Teaser Welcome To Tulip

Bankrupt and desperate, the artsy town of Tulip's only hope for more tourist dollars is a teaser video that gets hijacked by its own maintenance man looking for a chance to shine.

Yep! Fresh, original. Here's something we haven't seen before! Actually laughed out for this one :)

Optional images

Riccardo DiBankaba: Hometown Hero?

Riccardo DiBankaba: Hometown Hero?

Riccardo DiBankaba (Giovanni Mocibob) is dreaming of how to pull the little town he loves out of the deep and murky financial waters. True to form he says, "When one door shuts, no worries! You can always crawl out the kitty door."

Jackie Cassidy: Town 'IT' Girl

Jackie Cassidy: Town 'IT' Girl

Jackie Cassidy (Holly Pillsbury) is determined to resist the bizarre behaviour of her parents tumultuous relationship escapades. Sponetaneously, she embraces a new life of celibacy, to her parent’s liberal repulsion. Her “not in the least interested” attitude towards the theatre and relationships displays a remarkable degree of confidence that would make any young man swoon.

Leroy 'Butch' Cassidy: Founding Father

Leroy 'Butch' Cassidy: Founding Father

After his wife left him for a lone star slick oil tycoon, Leroy is faced with the unfamiliar territory of fatherhood. His gut-busting enthusiasm for the town he “fathered” reveals that he is sometimes incapable of following things through. His displays of unnecessary extravagance, like maintaining a Camero in a town that only has gravel roads, reveals the myth of grandeur he haplessly tries to attain in a town of little prominence.

David Cassidy: Theatre General Manager

David Cassidy: Theatre General Manager

As attendance hits an all time low at his beloved theatre, David hates that his future lies in the pockets of geriatrics. With little patience for tomfoolery, David tries to reign in his gaggle of troops to conquer the town’s mounting debt. He is always ready to pull up his white socks and meet the unpredictable days with his trusty Birkenstocks. And yes, his namesake is THE David Cassidy, minus all things partridge.

Rhoda Wang: B&B Lady

Rhoda Wang: B&B Lady

The town’s all star Itsy-Bitsy B&B is run by Rhoda. Everyone knows the theatre is the heart of the town, but she has some bigger pies to bake with managing crazy guests and rascal boys. To her, the myth of doing it all doesn't mean having it all. When she manages to scramble some downtime she keeps herself abreast with all the in's and out's of her eccentric neighbours... and family. Living in a town full of artists is never easy. Good thing she's got carbs.

    Hi Carly. We didn't want to do a straight "Trailer" like every other team was going to do. We wanted to do something different that would stick out! Combination of "epic trailer" feel, meets "tourism video" cause their in debt, which cuts against the small scene in the office that has a hand held awkward playfulness our show would feel like. We feel it was successful. If you need more info every team has included a synopsis and video description. Hope that clears things up!

Don't know, but I would love to watch more to see what happens. The scenery is gorgeous and the filming is outstanding. High class and high art come together in the town called Tulip. Brilliant work ; D
