satellitelady2 years agoMake the bar you are using to film in, open as Bar Karma once a week but don't tell when. It would make folks think they really walked into the place.
Use same props etc. Maybe cast could be there occasionally and act the part. Then have them head into the back room and reg employees come in like nothing happened.
Cheap, fun, a twilight zone experience for reg bar customers. Oh and have the Bar Karma add playing on the tv while they're there maybe do it for an hour or 15 min. Great publicity stunt..and the real bar could make some bucks too. Have the Mazda parked close by with the Bar Karma insignia on it.

Caleones2 years agoI guess instead of doing a full fledge alternate reality game, maybe it could be condensed into, for example, the PlayStation Home format. Create a room which replicates the Bar Karma, where you can sit down with fellow players and talk about the episodes playing and what ideas they have for future episodes.

Set loose a group of people who are experts on finding phone applications in a crowded setting. They find people using or that have application capable phones with them. These experts do a "karmic intervention" with the people to help them get the application they could really use the most at the time onto their phone and also download the Bar Karma App free for them during the process (have some sort of free code key to enter). Helping these people to "Rethink Possible"

parisinla2 years agoDefine shoestring... LOL
We could still do the undercover marketing program. it would need a modest print budget and alot of volunteer improv actors, somewhat like improv everywhere ... they need work anyway.
Also social media will be an important aspect of promoting the show or events. I think we can find a way to stage bar karma events on a low budget in existing spaces.
