A few weeks ago, I checked out Ellen DeGeneres’s website on a whim. When I saw that she takes audition videos for being her correspondent to awards ceremony red carpets, I played with it in my mind. What would I do if I were to audition? What if I treated my First Friday arts community as though they were the celebrities? How fun would that be!? It would be a love letter to Colorado Springs’ arts; fun, silly, meaningful…showing Ellen and the world what a great place this is.
SO, here we go! I’ll be going around December’s First Friday dressed to the nines, with a camera, mic, lights, and our very own tiny red carpet, interviewing and talking with YOU, attendees, artists, and gallery owners….our celebrities. We’ll be playing “Spin the Tail on the Donkey”, asking you if you’re wearing Ellen undies ( 😉 ), and having CRAZY FUN, showing the world how amazing this place we love is. ♥
Full schedule below! See you on the red carpet…and hey, DRESS UP! I mean, your everyday First Friday duds are always great, but if you wanna be fancy for the red carpet, let’s all go for it!
