Are you interested in being involved with Rubbout's events on Friday July 24? If you are, could you PLEASE respond to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible?
We have four activities going on and we need assistance with all.
#1) Rubbout's Prisoner Interrogation fantasy scene at Vancouver Fetish Weekend Uniform Party @ Imperial, Friday, July 24.
This activity is being spearheaded by Reid and Curtis. Last year Rubbout did a fantasy onstage and we've been asked to return this year for another. You have probably seen the video from last year. This year we are preparing a similar 3-4 minute performance with a similar theme, but with more military/camo gear and interrogation scene than just rubber.
We need the following performers:
- Two Prisoner guards
- Two Interrogator bodyguards
- Two Handlers
- Two Pups
And the following gear: Camo pants or military khaki or military style pants/tops, military style caps, aviator sunglasses, realistic rifles, handcuffs, chair restraints, prop that looks like a lie detector.
Last year we got to the event around 10 and didn't start performance until after midnight. I am currently in touch with VFW organizers to see if we can get on stage much earlier in order that we can aim to be at 8x6 for Hot & Sticky by 11 at the latest. I know they want our racy performance on later but we are really tight for time on the 24th. I will also inquire about furniture props as laid out in Curtis' layout plan sent to a select group yesterday.
Everyone on the crew last year had a blast at this event!
Plan to be available for one or two rehearsals, most likely the weekend or week before and possibly hours prior to heading to Imperial for the event.
#2) Audio/Visual for the Interrogation fantasy scene for Friday July 24.
We need a competent A/V guy to put together a 3:30-4 minute video with music for the large display screen above the stage at Imperial while Rubbout performance goes on stage.
Our early idea is to use the song "Sail" by AWOLSTATION (4:08) and open to suggestions for what visuals would work best. Last year we used more gay rubber fetish/bondage visuals; this year we are wondering if several classic movie scenes with prisoners being dragged into dark rooms for interrogations, or even one scene would suffice? The video also MUST include promotion at the end for the HOT & STICKY party, happening the same night on July 24, and also promotion for RUBBOUT 25: ELEMENTAL March 31 - April 3, 2016.
Anyone interested in taking this on? There are several people who can be used for technical reference if needed.
#3) HOT & STICKY Fetish Pride Kickoff Party hosted by Rubbout @ Club 8x6, 9pm - 3am Friday, July 24 - Saturday, July 25.
This activity is being spearheaded by Rob. We are planning to put on a party for the kinky crew at 8x6 on Pride Kickoff weekend Friday night similar to the kickass Play Party we hosted at 8x6 on Rubbout 24 weekend in April 2015. There will be social areas, play areas and demo areas.
Rob and Reid will need help with setup Friday afternoon, teardown after the end and possibly on Saturday morning (details TBA), and also Rob has informed me that there will probably be a few volunteers needed for the actual event doing such things as parkade door security, bar runners, and demo masters.
For those that don't have a desire to be observed onstage, this would be a great alternative, and of course free entry to the party for all volunteers ($15 at the door).
#4) Media guru to modify final Rubbout 25: Elemental media template.
Rob is requesting someone with Photoshop experience that will be able to modify the final Elemental media template for postcards, the main 8' x 6' banner, and possibly some non-related posters to promote the HOT & STICKY party at the Uniform Ball and some postering on Davie Street. Obviously H&S related artwork would need to be ready prior to July 24, and the main Elemental stuff ready for use as promotional material for Vancouver Pride.
I am sending this out to individuals on Facebook that I've known have indicated interest in helping us out; but also to the Rubbout email list,rubbout.com
, and the Rubbout Facebook page.
If you can't help out, I would REALLY appreciate it if you could send this to guys you think would like to help out or are interested in doing Rubbout-related stuff.
And if you can, I urge you to let me know what you would like to help with as soon as possible in order for us to put our plans in action.
Thanks everyone! LOVE YOU ALL!
