New romanceclass project: Still our words, new medium #RCU
We did the poster reveals on Patreon, and today on Instagram and Twitter, so now I can talk about it: We produced a thing. Three things. Specifically, short video adaptations of scenes from #romanceclass books by me, Jay E. Tria, and Six de los Reyes.
As I’ve documented fairly thoroughly here on this site, #romanceclass has been staging live readings of scenes from our books for three years now. What’s next? We’ve been playing with that idea of what’s next. Video has always been part of that, and now we’ve finally produced something. This first “season” takes familiar scenes from the books (scenes you might have seen performed live!), and Tara Frejas has adapted and directed each for the new medium, in different styles.
We’ll be releasing trailers and more details soon. What we’ve decided on so far: Patrons (via patreon.com/romanceclass) will get the news and see any produced media first. We’ll have a viewing party. We’ll make the videos available to stream. We’re already thinking of the next season and how to finance it. Get in touch with me/us if this is something you want to help us out with. This doesn’t mean this is the only kind of film or video work we’ll do–this is just one of the things we’re doing. Create the stuff you want to see, and all that.
This wouldn’t have been possible without the help of people who say yes to things (even if it’s after midnight haha). Gio Gahol and Gab Pangilinan are absolutely awesome. We also have editing and photography by Chi Yu Rodriguez, sound engineering by Tania Arpa, art by Carla de Guzman.
