You are invited to be a competing director
in a new interactive, online game.

Directors will meet with moderator Ken Roht to discuss logistics for the challenge.

Directors will then assemble a winning team of collaborators from a wide array of artistic disciplines.

Director vs Director - The Game

Two creative leaders will compete by bringing together a team of 10 people, each.
After an orientation meeting with the moderator and the two teams, each team will break out into their own meeting to start collaborating.
Teams will collaborate for three hours to create a theatrical presentation for a Zoom-type platform.
Presentations must include music, a video component, costumes, and the use of three props agreed upon by the creative leaders. 
All spoken and sung words must be scripted. All other art forms are welcomed and encouraged.  
At the end of three hours, each team will have a dress rehearsal on the moderator’s online meeting site.
Soon after, both teams will be joined by a paying audience that will watch the presentations and vote on them, based on established criteria. 
The director/team with the most votes wins.
Money collected from the event will go to all of the participating artists.
