Today I finished the marathon that was the Celebrate the Web 4 Webseries Pilot Competition. The challenge was to write/shoot/finish a webseries pilot in 7 days.
I expect to blog a lot about my experiences, as there were a lot of ‘firsts’ for me this week.
For better or worse, I no longer rest on the laurels of my teen opus “Stegron” which I shot for Jules when she was in high school — she was doing a school report on B-movies of the fifties, so we made one to accompany her paper.
She got an A, which, for a schlocky B-movie made me quite proud.
But what I did this week… far beyond anything I’ve done before. I don’t mean necessarily quality but just the amount of work, the decision making, the responsibility…it was a lot. And it was hard. And sometimes I thought I was insanely stupid for trying to do this.
But somehow, I made it through the week, completed a project, and actually wouldn’t mind doing it again (but, not in a race like this — I’d like to have more than 5 hours to write my script).
There are lots of people to thank, lots of stories to share. For now, I’ll just leave you with this. Ladies and gentlemen, my little baby… #FOLLOW.
You can watch the other 12 pilots here and if you feel like voting for us, that would be nifty.
Thanks. Now I’m gonna go sleep.
