Well it was a marvelous creative muse happening this weekend at ImprovFriday, where every weekend is a marvelous creative muse actually and it keeps getting better and better as we go as a community. I’ve been a member there now for the last year and few months and every weekend is just a treat. This weekend we were pleased to 2 new folks join with us and participate in the ImprovFriday thread event, Jude Cowan and T.H. aka Terry Horn. Welcome folks!
Few projects of note that have been produced by the ImprovFriday community in recent weeks are the first ever ImprovFriday Film Festival which was a huge success. Check out the video works from this event at theImprovFriday Film Festival I. With the horrific events that occurred in Japan ImprovFriday hosted a weekend long benefit event encouraging support of the relief work being done by the Red Cross. An online album to ongoing encourage support of the Red Cross effort for the Japanese people was released on BandCamp, For Japan.
I want to mention that ImprovFriday Radio podcast host Paul Muller has published a new episode review new work by several of the ImprovFriday family. Check it out on Podomatic.com at ImprovFriday Radio.
