STAGE DOOR // Saturday MAY 9 // 5:45PM
Q&A with Director and Cinematographer
Dear Prospective Participant (PP),
On behalf of EvCorp and our beloved founder Henry Marshall Evans Sr., it is my sincere pleasure to invite you to take part in our research program. You are encouraged to dress casually, in accordance with the informal nature of this initial encounter. The procedure will be simple: you – the PP – will be presented with a series of sounds and moving images intended to measure the strength and nature of your ethical convictions. Additional tests to determine physiological aptitude will then be conducted at a later date. Please note that priority will be given to those with particularly high thresholds for pain and limited histories of political activism (criminal records are otherwise OK).
Thank you for your interest, PP, and have a blessed day.
(dir. Zach Weintraub)
