I've developed a short play around this one:Early dawn, orange/pink sunlight slides through a slit under bedroom curtain. Sound of snoring, then startled, Bryan sits bolt upright in bed. He notices a figure sitting across the room, barely illuminated. He gets out of bed, opens the curtain to find the ghost of Tolouse Lautrec sitting across from his bed.Ghost of Tolouse (GOT): Draw me.Bryan (B): OK. All I've got is this walnut ink.GOT: That'll do.B: Hold on.GOT: 'K.B:What's it like being dead.GOT: Not bad. I'm taller now.B: Did that bother you in life.GOT: Not really. Although, I was a little taller than Jose Ferrar on his knees.B: Right.GOT: You done yet.B: Yes, here you go.GOT looks at drawing.GOT: Not bad, well, I gotta get going.B: See you.GOT: Have a better one.Curtain closes.
How about actually performing that and then videotaping it?
Certainly - I'll videotape it - but you'll have to star in it. I would volunteer to be the ghost of Lautrec - but I think it would be better if you'd construct some kind of cloth mannikin with lautrec's face on it to sit in a chair across from your bed. We can submit it to next year's Sundance.
