OPPORTUNITY

Volunteer needed for a region-specific performance in Bushwick, Brooklyn, NY on this Sat. Nov. 12th (part of Bushwick Art Projects)


Deadline:
Sat Nov 12, 2005 00:00

Looking for a volunteer to bike around Bushwick, Brooklyn, NY to video 'spot document' a region-specific live performance during [BAP] (Bushwick Art Projects) on this Saturday, November 12th.
The performance will start around 8:30 p.m.

I personally planning to bike around and make visits to chinese takeout restaurants in Bushwick area, starting at 8:30 p.m. on Sat. Nov. 12th as a part of BAP.

I'll audioblog with GPS positioning data documented during this trip -
which simultaneously be broadcasted at ORTPLAY @ORT (330 Ellery st., 1st & 2nd. floors, Bushwick near J train Flushing Ave. station.)

While I can do much stuff myself, it'd be super helpful if there is one
more person can make the trip with me!
I'm looking for a person who can participate the 'hopping-around' with a
video camera (better;) or a digi camera with mov. mode (okay), on a
bike/skateboard etc. (I'll be on bike myself.. so the other person needs to be also with something faster than on foot.
and if necessary, I may be able to hook you up with a bike which I can
borrow someone from ORT.)

I presume the trip would take approx. over an hour. (but definitely less
than 1.5.)

I'd appreciate if you can forward to whoever may be interested.

thanx millions!!
