Andy Warhol famously said, “In the future, everybody will be famous for fifteen minutes.” But even with the proliferation of reality TV and instant Internet superstars, the truth is that most people won’t even be famous for fifteen seconds. See what happens when I took a custom-made portable red carpet out for a spin to bring a little red carpet glamour to average New Yorkers, in this new man on the street sizzle reel called Stargayzing with David Munk: On the Red Carpet. Hopefully it will lead to a bevy of on-camera hosting opportunities; alternatively, it may just bring a smile to your face.
Many thanks to Patrick Pocklington for introducing me to Joe and Lauren Avallone at RevealNYC, Stargayzing contributor and artist Corinna Tomrley for the star portraits, and to Cam Corrado for all the graphics, B roll camera and all of his support and help throughout the production. I couldn’t have finished this without all of you. Much gratitude to all of the on-camera interviewees—especially Lisa Jurick and Nikki Haskell, for giving me something to work with and Douglas Gumm, one of the “finest artisans in New York,” for the carpet.
Feel free to share it and please let me know what you think.
