T.V show that I would like to do is called The Message and it will be open mic with a very small audience. This show will be for people 12 years old and above. Every episode of The Message is based on a style of poetry, so every episode is a new style. I would like to see a black backdrop with a spot light on the performer with no audience around them just like in this video: http://youtu.be/E6DFoVwZLB8 .
This example is also similar to last one but I like the fact that you can hear some of the audience’s response in this video, I think it adds some life to the performance, so that is something I would like to see: http://youtu.be/5AxQZlXFL_4?t=57s even though this shows the performer and the audience’s response but the focus is the performer only.
I am planning to have something like this:
Day one – free style – (just to get people to introduce themselves and open up)
Day two – couplet
Day three – sonnet
Day four – Ballad
Day five – Haiku
I plan to have just a black backdrop, with one light directed towards the subject and just dark background.
