Prospect’s VISION Series:
New Music Theater on Film
Prospect’s VISION Series is a new initiative launched in 2020, to continue our mission of creating and presenting original musical theater works, while public gatherings are on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through the VISION Series, Prospect will offer paid opportunities for artists creating new work by commissioning, producing, and presenting short-form original musical theater performances on film. These ultra-small-cast projects will embrace a variety of visual and musical styles and stories, aiming to capture the humanity of live theatrical performance through innovative cinematic approaches. We will document our process with brief, behind-the-scenes videos and interviews with artists working in this new way. We invite you to share in this experiment and adventure!
VISION Series film projects will be presented for free online streaming via Prospect's YouTube Channel. Please SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube Channel!
A key partner for the initial VISION Series projects will be The Goodwill Theatre located in Johnson City, New York, where Prospect artists will be in residence during the second half of September 2020. The Goodwill's historic theater venue (built in 1920) will provide a spacious and stunning sound stage location for socially-distanced filming.
Prospect launched the VISION Series with THE ANSWER, an original music video by InnissENT, which premiered on August 14th. Prospect will shortly announce the premiere dates for its fall cycle of VISION Series projects, with films to be released weekly beginning October 15, 2020.
Leadership support for VISION Series writer commissions is provided by Leonard Majzlin and Somerled Arts. We are currently raising additional, critical funds for the VISION Series.
