The Clyde Fitch Report is pleased to be the lead online media sponsor of 50 Characters in 50 Weeks, actor Brent Rose’s attempt to create 50 short films showcasing 50 completely individual characters of his own creation. Rose has filmed half the characters so far; the project has been accepted by Kickstarter.com to raise the remaining funds to finish.
Donate as little as $5 or as much as $5,000 and receive premiums for your participation. For example, $25 gets you a full-resolution DVD with your five favorite episodes; $50 gets you the entire series, plus bonus material and more.
Through Nov. 6, the CF Report will promote two of Rose’s “character” videos, and Rose will include a short written introduction to them by the character he’s portraying.
Today’s video is “Classic,” putting the spotlight on Mike Pritchard:
“What makes a classic?” is, in itself, a classic question. Of course there’s subjectivity involved, but is there such a thing as a Universal Classic — something that is so undeniably good it is revered by all? In my opinion, there are a few. In September of 2009 I was approached by a filmmaker named Brent Rose and asked for my expertise on all that which is Classic. What ensued was an epic exploration of all that is awesome in this world, according to me, and perhaps the debunking of a few stereotypes about “nerds.” I hope you’ll enjoy. -Mike Pritchard
