Hi, I am getting married this April to the most amazing woman in the world, who happens to be a midwife. Her name is Kimary. For the wedding dinner, I am getting up and giving a speech and show a few videos of friends talking about her. I am looking for an insightful (humorous or dramatic), fictional video about my fiancé delivering YOUR baby (or you and your husband/boyfriend/friend telling the story). Though it will be scripted, you should act like it is a spontaneous telling of the story. The audience should have no idea that this is a humorous, dramatized, fictional account.
Video length 2 minutes or so.
For the contest- Submit your video. Your videography skills DON'T matter. No editing needing. This can be filmed on an iPhone. The plot and acting is all that matters. No music in the background. This should look authentic, just like the other "real" interviews I am doing.
1)Humor is good.
2) We should know more about Kimary by the end.
3) There should be a plot. What happens during the delivery? Dialogue? What is the result? Have fun with it! Feel free to make fun of her, me or us! Or just stick to awesome drama.
Her Midwifery practice (things to poke fun at)
It is a white practice for white people. Hippi-ish. They encapsulate the placenta.
A few things about my wife-to-be (you don't have to include this in your video, but I thought it would give you an idea):
Before meeting me, Kimary considered adopting her own child. She is now 34 and thought she would be single forever. She was in the Peace Corps in Senegal, she lived in a mud hut for 2 years.
Kimary has twin 1-year old niece and nephew, whom she loves. Chloe and Jude.
She is a people person, very community oriented.
Also, feel free to make fun of me in the video:
Jewish, very short (5'4), had many loves before Kimary, (I am Kimary's first love), I'm an atheist... but Kimary is still converting to Judaism.
About us: we met online, on OK Cupid, I used an excel sheet to limit the choices and typed in peace corps into the search term
Feel free to ask any questions so I can help make this an awesome video!!!
