NOLAFugees Press|Productions makes a literary conference look entertaining

Event: Apr 16, 2012

It’s no small feat to make a video based on a literary conference, where much of the action takes place verbally and cerebrally–and, of course, alcoholically. But the folks over at NOLAFugees have taken a shot at the task and come up with an admirable short piece that features proceedings from the 2012 Tennessee Williams Festival. It certainly doesn’t hurt that our town’s fair festival involves things like burlesque and a shouting contest.

You can see more videos from NOLAFugees, including coverage of the excellent The People Say Project, at their Vimeo channel.
