YouPrompt

Hybrid project consisting of a website, a construction set, a workshop, and an exhibition.

Our world is a world of pictures, more and more it is a world of videos. The Internet mirrors and designs this world- in its unofficial centre YouTube. Television and cinema turn people into passive observers. YouTube offers more, and YouPrompt goes one step further by asking you to get involved with the contributions more intensively. A phenomenon standing out in anthropological research on YouTube is the counterfeiting of videos. YouPrompt takes up this trend and accords it a new face through an independent platform.

1. Introduction to the participatory culture of YouTube
2. Browsing YouTube to select a video
3. Preparation: Transscripting the texts and practising
4. Video shooting
5. Postproduction and upload of the videos to YouTube
6. Final screening

The length of the workshop depends on the number of participants. It takes approximately one hour per participant, plus introduction and conclusion presentation. For each participant, separate dates can be agreed.

Equipment (costumes, make-up, wigs, Camera and computers, etc.) can by supplied.
