P4RTY P4RT 4: ONE HAND CRAPPING (or A PARTY IN 4 PARTS)
February 26th, 2010 @ Synchronicity Space, Los Angeles

PART4-blur

Synopsis: Waltar finds a mysterious baby on the shore and becomes convinced that it’s a symbolic gesture from the mermaid. Meanwhile, Party B. Good and the pig are out flying kites. Pig wanders off to gorge on truffles and starts hallucinating as a mysterious object descends from the sky. She is taken aboard the UFO and it disappears. The A L I E N Z demand a snack ransom for the pig. King knows the threat of war is imminent.

This episode explores ideas about creation and self-destruction, with crap-as-art being the central metaphor.

P4RTY P4RT 4 deals with blessings but also with loss. As with PART 3, this show is built around 2 mirrored narratives. One shows the world from Party B. Good’s perspective, and the other from Waltar’s. In between we see several other curious things.

This show took me over 1 year to complete. In that 1 year I wrote and completed 4 more versions of what should have been the script. I had a hard time committing to my ideas at the time. I exercised my musical talents and worked on several small comic projects, like PRISON FOOD. I was in a tentative living situation and without a studio to work in for most of 2009.

For P4RT 4 I payed special attention to the sets. Still trying to minimize my green-screen use, I started building more practical sets to make my world a little more convincing.
