About this project
IF WE MAKE IT TO $6000, I WILL THROW AN OPENING PARTY FOR ALL
NY_Hearts: LES melds a love story with an iPhone app and the sights and sounds of the Lower East Side. Dive into the story of Jill, a mixed media and tattoo artist, as she speaks to Sal on the anniversary of their first date. Over the audio storytelling app Moveable Feast, Jill recalls how they met and fell in love in the Lower East Side of NYC, leading listeners, like voyeurs, to sexy moments and special spots. Relive what Jill saw, tasted and felt as she reveals the truth about Sal’s past.
NY_Hearts: LES will premiere in the The Brick Theater’s GAME PLAY FESTIVAL in July 2012 bricktheater.com
Featuring eight different locations in the Lower East Side including five small businesses, NY_Hearts: LES is part scavenger hunt, part love story integrating goods and services featured in the tale. Participating partners include Yoga High, The Fat Radish, Bosi, Lost Weekend NYC, My Plastic Heart, and The Parkside Lounge. The ticket includes a yoga class, lunch, and other surprise goods and services from the businesses. Conceived as a way to discover the Lower East Side in a fun fashion, creator James Carter launches the first of his five neighborhood love stories in July 2012 as part of the Brick Theater’s Game Play Festival.
HOW YOUR SUPPORT HELPS
The money raised on Kickstarter will go to pay actors, a sound engineer and recording studio. The entire live experience is audio-based, so we want to offer the best experience possible. The better the audio, the better the experience. Additionally, we want to pay our talent. Donate here, and know you'll be supporting not only NY_Hearts but the artists with whom we work.
STORY WORLD EXPANSION 2013
NY_Hearts: LES is only the beginning. Following a successful launch of the the Lower East Side story, NY_Hearts plans to expand to other NYC neighborhoods in the fall and winter of 2012. These neighborhood-based experiences provide the foundation for a much larger story experience that will spill out onto many digital and physical media platforms, including a web series in 2013.
Currently, Moveable Feast is only available for iOS on iPhone. You can certainly borrow or share a friend's phone for the experience.
