  • 8. Better Left Unsaid follows on the heels of Kathryn Jones’ first live streamed production, “35”. A first of it’s kind live streamed web series, “35” was shot on the tiniest of budgets but was covered by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Mashable, blogs from around the world, was featured on iTunes and had well over 100,000 views. "Theater people: We need You"- -New York Times Digital Media Critic Virginia Heffernan in her review of “35”
  • 9. A first of it’s kind, interactive, live streamed theatrical event 8 Lives, 8 Secrets. How Well Do You Know The People Who You Love? Better Left Unsaid, by Joey Brenneman, is a complex roadmap of a play that begins in Central Park on a strangely warm, foggy day in November. We follow eight characters as their paths twist and turn in unexpected ways. Better Left Unsaid is a story about how our lives are affected by the pieces of information that we choose to withhold from the people we love. Sometimes the same secret that protects one person damages another. Better Left Unsaid has a multi-cultural cast of diverse ages and explores the universal themes of family, love, relationships, parenthood, honesty and fidelity.
  • 10. A first of it’s kind, interactive, live streamed theatrical event Listen! This is a live event! We can surmise what and who our audiences will be, but we can’t make any guarantees! Anyone who tells you they can… well…lets just say we have years of experience in the commercial online video world and we know that game! That said we do know that… • 58% of our Facebook fans are female and 33% of our female fans are between the ages of 25 and 44 - so we seem to be hitting the “mommy sweet spot”
  • 11. A first of it’s kind, interactive, live streamed theatrical event In addition…. • Judging from past experience there should be tremendous interest from the online video community and the technology community at large (last project was covered in Mashable, Truemors and blogs from all over the world). These populations tend to skew male, ages 22-45 with above average incomes. • There is tremendous interest in this event among the theater community. We have already received significant coverage from major theater blogs and organizations. Why does this matter? Take a look at the recently compiled demographic of people working in off-off Broadway in NYC – 85% of the OOB population holds a college degree. – 68% of respondents are age 21-40 – 53% of respondents are female – Income level of Off-Off-Broadway artists is near the national average
  • 12. A first of it’s kind, interactive, live streamed theatrical event Better Left Unsaid…. • Is breaking entirely new ground in the way it merges theater and technology • Is interactive in ways that few videos, and almost no theater pieces can be • Is written, directed and produced by women, bringing a much needed female point of view to the world of online video, a world which is almost entirely dominated by content created by men • Will more deeply engage a 21st century audience
  • 13. A first of it’s kind, interactive, live streamed theatrical event • Will allow our audience to literally become a part of the creative community via Facebook, Twitter, chat rooms and video. • Harnesses the inherent interactivity of the web • Combines the excitement of live theater with the community of live streamed video events • Is a new dramatic paradigm that could launch an entirely new dramatic form born of today’s technology • Is a funny, smart, play about how our lives are affected by the pieces of information that we choose to share or withhold from the people we love the most
  • 14. A first of it’s kind, interactive, live streamed theatrical event • Better Left Unsaid has already begun to build a significant community. – Over 161 people contributed to our Kickstarter fundraising campaign – BLU is building on an already vibrant Facebook and Twitter community
