Opera, Hip-Hop, and Spotify Film Shoots Collide at OCEG
It’s been a busy Fall! The air’s been crisp and nippy and the stars have been out! In September, we had the world reknowned opera singer Sharleen Joynt and her husband Michael visit while she was here for the month’s performance of Sky on Wings with Opera Philadelphia. Apparently playing escape rooms are one of Sharleen and Michael’s favorite things to do while traveling for work. They enjoyed the Midnighters so much that they came back for A Quest for Freedom just a few days later, and even sent some co-stars from the Opera to come enjoy our escape rooms too. With all the theatrics and drama in both escape rooms and Operas, it shouldn’t be surprising that these worlds overlap so easily! With Sharleen and Michael being such enthusiasts, we had to extend an invitation to them to come beta test our next game, 2084.
October was also just as eventful as we were contacted by Spotify to be part of a video shoot by the awesome and quirky hip-hop artist Tierra Whack, who recently signed to the mega rap star Meek Mill’s DreamChasers label. Tierra’s known for her eye-catching 60-second song projects that are set to videos of zany alternate universes. Since Tierra also loves playing escape rooms, it was a perfect fit to shoot her special in a 60-minute adventure with Olde City Escape Games. So, before we knew it, Spotify sent an entire production crew to Olde City Escape Games and our lobby and the Midnighters game was converted into a movie set. Lights, camera, action - the Spotify crew captured the awesome 60 minute adventures Tierra and her friends had playing the Midnighters.
