Full Speed Ahead!

Hello Everyone, 

Great news: we have officially begun editing full time with our new post-production team. Over the last 6 weeks, we’ve been working hard collecting all the videos and photos that have been taken at Improv Everywhere events since its inception in 2002. During those past ten years, hundreds of videographers and photographers have documented Improv Everywhere events and we’re doing our best to track down as much material as possible. (If you have any footage you’d be willing to send to us, please email

In addition to what others have shot, we’ve secured access to all the Improv Everywhere archival video (over 100 Mini DV tapes...remember those!) and we’re planning to digitize everything in the highest quality possible. We’re looking forward to discovering new stories and great behind-the-scenes footage as we continue to look for patterns in the evolution of Improv Everywhere.

The ongoing support of this project has been amazing. We’ve been contacted by over 20 freelance professionals who have offered the film everything from composing to translation services. We’ve been in touch with all of them and will be sure to use their skills as best as possible. What’s more, we’ve been offered discounted equipment and production services to help document an Improv Everywhere mission for the film from start to finish. Finally, we’ve had some generous donations via PayPal and raised an additional $650. If you missed the campaign and would also like to support us, check it out here:

Please make sure to keep up to date with us on Facebook and Twitter where we will continue to post more information about the film! It’s the best place to see clips and teasers before the movie comes out!
