Finding Face Time
A YouTube Musical
Book by Deborah Vogt
Music by Kerry O’Donovan
Lyrics by Sarah Harrison, Kerry O'Donovan and Deborah Vogt
In the spring of 2015 the producers of In Tune solicited ideas from the community for an original 10-minute YouTube musical, to be promoted and disseminated as part of In Tune’s official programming. They asked for a new, original musical written and composed specifically for YouTube, making use of the elements that define video, as opposed to live performance. The finished work had to contain 50% musical material, all of which must be original.
The winning selection, Finding Face Time, is a musical about connecting in a world that is not always grounded in reality. It’s the story of two people whose relationship has evolved solely through video dating, and it is told entirely through a Skype conversation. Watch it below!
