Chess (1991)

25'47 Runtime. Wrote and Starred in this End-of-year live show for Art Paladino's Studio class. I made the most technically skilled students act, and vice versa for the rest of the class. I also wrote the script with pages of off-screen dialog (no memorization!) for ease of production. An American and Russian student find themselves head-to-head in a chess tournament, where their internal struggles become external national rebellion. Video handled by Plyr.
