Want 15 seconds of fame? Hit the streets the same time the camera crews are filming a scene.

Experiencing 'SNL' withdrawal? It's time to fill that void left by the summer hiatus with some of D.C.'s best improv comedy. From Aug. 7 'til Sept. 5, check out Washington Improv Theater's (1835 14th St. N.W.) Neutrino Video Project, hittin' the streets of the 2-0-2 to create an instant, improvised movie.
 
Here's how it works -- but in our defense, it's a complicated process, so we'll do our best to explain. The Video Project begins with suggestions and props from the audience. Then, three teams, each consisting of a camera, runners and performers hit the streets to film. The first team shoots a scene and then runs it back to the theater, where it’s immediately screened. Meanwhile, the second team works on a scene which is shown promptly after the first team's scene. The third team follows and the whole process repeats until, TA-DA, you have yourself an insta-movie in under an hour.

Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., witness for yourself these on-the-spot scenes, all scored and screened live. Tix are $15.
