When asked to create a reality show pitch video, UP Productions jumped at the chance. With the stars and creative force behind their local cabaret performed in the heart of Hollywood, Robert Lee, Kate Pazakis, Michael-Leon Wooley and Kyra Selman asked us to put together a whiz-bang, super-fun video to pitch to prospective studios and television networks for a pilot order. With smartly shot video, engaging motion graphics and a toe-tapping soundtrack, the pitch video for Cabaret Wars was a hit with studio executives and heads.
So enjoy a short sample of Cabaret Wars!
Cabaret (English pronunciation: /kæbəˈreɪ/) is a form of entertainment featuring music, song, dance, recitation, or drama. It is mainly distinguished by the performance venue, which might be a pub, a restaurant or a nightclub with a stage for performances. The audience, often dining or drinking, does not typically dance but usually sits at tables. Performances are usually introduced by a master of ceremonies or MC. The entertainment, as done by an ensemble of actors and according to its European origins, is often (but not always) oriented towards adult audiences and of a clearly underground nature. In the United States striptease, burlesque, drag shows, or a solo vocalist with a pianist, as well as the venueswhich house such events, are often advertised as cabarets.
