hetnew The Wonderful Shaye Saint John
Shaye Saint John burst onto the YouTube scene in 2006, with quick, often 3-5 minute, works of absurdly lovely bizarreness which achieved each epic horror standing in addition to absolute authentic comedic genius. Shaye garnered a comparatively massive following, probably of which not figuring out what within the hell to consider her, or him, or it. A DVD was created and put out by Indican Photos in 2004. Apparently some festivals and curators had proven the work, however as ordinary, most experimental curators the place asleep on the wheel having blindly handed up the wonderful work of Shaye Saint John.
The character of Shaye consisted of different worldly, nearly alien like qualities; talkng in an odd extraterrestrial like voice and searching like one thing between a crippled a number of amputee sufferer and a severely botched cosmetic surgery affected person (a tough backstory had unfold of Shaye being an ex mannequin in a horrible automobile wreck left badly disfigured). Shaye rolled along with her no matter situation and poised as some form of starlet with entrepreneurial ventures similar to pores and skin tape classes and drip drop diets. Her epic catch phrases (“gawd! gams! twenty 4 seven!”) had been delivered in a means that was all Shaye; a language of her personal, present in a world of her personal along with her typically sidekick Kiki and (imaginary?) associates that she bantered with on the telephone.
It appeared the Shaye motion was happening in Los Angeles as indicated by early road performances of Shaye being wheeled round in a wheelchair getting photos taken with vacationers in Hollywood. The L.A. scene was becoming, however actually it might have been wherever, USA, as we see the fact wannabee star transgressions exist country-wide; the attract of constructing it, weight-reduction plan all the way down to appear to be the celebrities and finally turning into that star or starlet in some trend. All an ingrained American dream that attracts attract from each crevice of the nation.
A legend in her personal thoughts Shaye appeared to be. However the Shaye legend was cemented stable electronically and worldwide by the digital panorama, as evidenced not solely by the web views, however the sturdy reactions, utter confusions, and excessive accolades garnered; Shaye was certainly, the true deal.
In actuality the true deal was Eric Fournier. He was the creator of Shaye Saint John. It is unclear of the precise particulars; was he the one behind the bizarro model masks? Was he the sped up different worldly voice? Because it seems most of the Shaye items have a “shifting digicam”, maybe Eric was behind the lens, directing all the motion and offering dialogue. We solely know of Eric from the “directorial” credit score he did go away on the DVD. It was assumed that he performed Shaye, however by no means confirmed to my data.
Sadly, Eric died early this yr in late February. There are some previous producer credit on his IMBD web page, and a few notoriety connected to him from being in a recognized punk band in the course of the 80’s known as The Blood Farmers. Apart from that, little has surfaced as of this writing and as of this writers on-line looking out.
YouTube accounts do not robotically die when the bodily physique ceases operation, so Shaye continues to reside on within the digital panorama, garnering increasingly views day by day. On the Shaye YouTube profile web page the feedback do report and acknowledge that Shaye (Eric) has handed. Most of the feedback from hate to reward all present what a powerful and efficient absurdist drive we have now misplaced.
