Livestreaming Game Show DIRECTOR VS DIRECTOR Announces Episode 6 - The College Edition!

Holding down this adventurous DIY romp is the show's host, National Treasure Mark Bedard, who - along with a wild array of on-air regulars - provides us with guidance, merriment, music, and unpredictable mayhem. Balloon Girl Millie Grams, 4-Cs Spokesperson Jenna Morris, and "Fly on the Wall" Tim Hearl are  a few more of the Director Vs Director family. And longtime Orphean Circus collaborator John Ballinger provides the highly eclectic musical score for every episode.

About the Game

Two creative leaders bring together teams of 8 people, each. After a brief orientation meeting where they learn the game rules and their prescribed theme and props for their 8-minute presentations, each team breaks out into their own meeting and begins creating. They must devise a script and include one original song. At the end of the three-hour-period, each team has an online technical rehearsal. Then it's showtime! The teams present their work to a live online audience who will vote for their favorite presentation. The team with the most votes wins and goes on to future challenges.

About the Show

Game creator and director Ken Roht's priority for Director Vs Director is to offer unique, collaborative opportunities for the countless artists who are waiting for the performing arts to flourish again. Actors, singers, dancers, performance artists, filmmakers, designers, writers, musicians - and the audiences that appreciate them - all come to play.

Director Vs Director has, since its launch in August 2020, provided an outlet for nearly one hundred artists ages 3 to 73, from Los Angeles to London and from Broadway to Brazil.

Contributing artists include Broadway regulars Alice Ripley, Ben Cameron, Lauren Elder, J. Elaine Marcos, and Sam Given; notable performers and musicians Chris Wells of The Secret City, and Grammy award-winning vocalist Janis Siegel and Los Angeles Alt-rockers The HolyCuts; Veteran LA Director David O, Theatre Professor Marc Devine, UK Filmmaker Jacob Perlmutter, LA Designer Brandon Baruch, and Brazilian performance artist Artur Contardi, just to name a few. Head to the show's YouTube channel to see the first five episodes.

Director Vs Director is an all-volunteer production and audience donations collected from each episode go directly to the participating artists.
