Trudeau's Bag Man is a short video project shot during the afternoon at Devonshire Mall, on Saturday, March 18, 2023. Starting at 1:30pm, time commitment approximately 1 hour.

We'd like up to half dozen participants for a anti Trudeau video comedy spoof.

Plot and script will be explained on site.

Everyone's lines and shots will all be very brief (approximately 5 seconds per segment).

Camera owner-operators welcome to collaborate.

This is an open-source 100% voluntary not-for-profit project.

This wiki page is for project development and production, detailing shoot plans and volunteer recruitment. Another promotional Trudeau's Bag Man wiki page will provide central information about the final short film.

Shooting style

This video shoot does not have permits nor permission, so we don't know what to expect. If necessary we can relocate to other malls and locations (restaurants, washrooms, sidewalk, parks, etc).

We will practice choreography, run lines, and rehearse before we shoot guerilla style - all handheld, with minimal equipment.

Story concept

In the mall setting a man seems clumsy, bumping into people, knocking things over, causing chaos, etc.

It soon becomes apparent that the man wields a blind person's cane.

Eventually we finally see the man's head... is covered by a paper bag.

Finally we read the front of the bag, "I'm so embarrassed I voted for Trudeau..."

(Alternative? : "I'm so embarrassed I fell for Trudeau's fear mongering about COVID-19.")
