Andy Warhol FROM THE FUTURE, returns to 2012 to give a fellow artist a taste of the future. Take a ride on a spaceship to Warhol City!
The story is set in both present time and future. Andy Warhol is known to have died in 1987, but him and his fellow artists found a way to travel to the future. Warhol returns to the past to give a fellow artist, Joey Broyles, a taste of the future. Joey is resistant and claims that Warhol is a ghost, but quickly discovers that Warhol is very much alive and is about to give him a ride on his spaceship to the future. In the future, Warhol shows Joey his kingdom: Warhol City, and the love affair begins. SUPERSTAR BOOTHS. SILVER FACTORY LOUNGE, art gallery club. RAY GUNS AND ART! And of course DRAG QUEENS and PHOTOSHOOTS!
What’s needed for the production?
Costumes are a fundamental part of a video like this. The largest scene will be a club scene where we’ll have a handful of people dressed as Warhol characters from his days in the factory. I’ll be hiring a local costumer and is familiar with this future/retro 1960s look. We’ll search through local thrift shops as well as dealing a local vintage clothing dealer, VicMizzy. We will also need to purchase some wigs.
Props on a Budget are a specialty of mine, but only so many things can be made from the random supplies in my recycle bin. I’ll be creating 1950 style ray guns for the Dueling GoGo Dancers and some fancy tools and gadgets for Warhol. I will need to purchase some supplies: glue, spray paint, LED light kits, and lots of tin foil and other shiny silver items.
Lighting is especially important for a video with a range of special effects. Since I don’t own a full lighting kit, we’ll need to rent one.
Sets that either need to be built or local places that will need to be transformed into the future have already been scouted out. We’ll need a variety of set dressings to create each of our sets. We need to build the inside of the control room for Warhol’s spaceship, and turn a garage into an exclusive club with plexiglass, poles, and a stage for the GoGo Dancers and Marilyn Monroe. Large pieces of wood, cardboard, foam board, paint, and addition lighting will be needed as well to finish building the small-scale model of Warhol City.
Arts & Graphics I will need a little money to purchase physical prints, silkscreens and silkscreen ink to create additional set pieces.
The Actors & Crew The actors and crew are the most valuable people and crucial to this video. The actors will be compensated for their time and effort.
Food. We’ll need to feed all these lovely people for at least three shoots. So don’t let these people starve or they are liable to eat me and we don’t want that! Ha ha!
My name is Joey Broyles and I’m a modern day renaissance man. I don’t think that people should limit themselves to one form of art because life is all art and I live and breathe all parts of life. Every day I create art in all ways possible. I produce videos, write, sing and act. I make art to entertain the people around me as well as my subscribers on YouTube. If I’m making art then I’m happy. I am slave to my art and my imagination.
My Final Plea
Although I’m no stranger to writing, producing, and directing my very own videos, I'd love nothing more than to have fewer limitations for my imagination. Andy Warhol has inspired me for several years and it all started with a simple area rug I saw in a furniture store. From that area rug till now, Andy Warhol has done a world of good for me. I was born to perform and make art.
If you've ever been inspired by Warhol or by other artists, even just donating $1 would make a world of difference for this project and me! Help me make Warhol City and all the other magic of this short film come to life! And hey, if you donate $10 or more you'll get some pretty cool gifts. Check out the packages on the right and be sure to watch the video above, if you haven't already. There are some images from one of my videos below as well as some other useful information. Thanks for your support and please SHARE, SHARE, SHARE this with the world!
If you have any questions, contact me. I’m very accessible and I don’t bite, unless I haven’t fed on the living.
