SOURCE OF INSPIRATION:

During the silent film era in #Japan (1920's, 1930's), the #benshi performers stood to the side of the movie screen and introduced and related the story to the audience. In theatrical style, benshi often spoke for the characters on-screen and played multiple roles. Stemming from the traditions of #kabuki and #Noh theaters, the benshi’s narration and general commentary were an important part of the Japanese silent film experience. The benshi would also provide translation for foreign (mostly American) movies.

So what the hell are we doing here?! Taking that long-honored tradition and getting weird with it. Teams of two (give or take) will reinterpret clips of varying mediums and (hopefully) entertain you!
