About a month ago I wrote about Jon Davison's clown research project over in the UK. Today I want to report another such effort, this one here in New York City by Brian A. Bernhard.
Brian has been running around interviewing all kinds of clown folks and putting the results up on a web site devoted to this project: A Fool's Idea. The goal is to turn the site into a forum where reader questions will eventually generate not just discussion, but videos on that subject.
Here's part of Brian's intro:
“A FOOL’S IDEA” is a new interactive documentary web series that explores the world of clown in a way never experienced before. The first few episodes will set the baseline for the ideas and basic concept of clown, after the first few inspirational episodes, a dialogue will be opened up to the audience. Viewers are encouraged to ask questions about clown, performance, character, or just life in general. Future episodes of the series will be based on YOUR questions."
So check it out and give Brian some feedback. He's got tons of energy, so put him to work!
