You're going to be busy, but make many happy along the way.
Thanks. It will be a bit of a stretch, but, then again, even though I really want to be able to film the whole first season in block sessions, I only really need to complete the first episode before the deadline. That gives me a little over a month for just one 10 minute episode - in the worst case scenario. And that's easily manageable.
Wow, March isn't too long from now. I would have expected that you had the scripts done my now...
Yeah. I'm pretty slow when it comes to writing scripts as it is, and, now, I'm trying to reboot a series while still keeping links to the original so it could also be seen as a quasi-continuation; all while trying to make it easy enough to understand for the newer viewers!!!
If nothing else, though, it's been fun writing like this. A nice little challenge for myself.
I'll be looking forward to the casting calls. This series looks interesting, I hope you can pull it off!
I think I'm going to upload another test theme, probably next week, and then, I'll do some character bios before I actually start the casting. I will say this now, however:
For those who haven't seen the original show - There always were "reoccurring" characters who would be portrayed by the same actors, and would appear in most ever episode, but, would have a different personality in world to world...
For instance, there was this Taxi driver who, in one "world" ripped people off, in another he was a resistance fighter for an underground democratic movement in a communist-ruled world, and in yet another, he worked with the mafia. The only thing that stayed the same was his occupation, and his sense of humor.
I think this sort of a concept is great, as it can give a certain similarity between episodes (showing that it is all set in one location) but, can give some twists and turns depending on what wacky sort of scenario each world has. - This Taxi Driver will, for certain, be one of the characters up for casting.
BTW, what ever happened to your THAC film?
It's still in production
I've had a lot happen to me over the past month and a half, and, actually, I was dislocated to a hotel temporarily right during THAC time. I even attempted to film most of it there! (And had a very hard time with lighting flicker and the such.)
Long story short, I'm planning on moving before the summer, but, in the meantime, and back home, with access to my entire LEGO collection to boot.
So, I'm going to be filming like crazy in my free-time over the next few weeks. In that time, I'd like to get some CinematiCritics episodes completed (another show I'm starting), as well as work on Sliders, and perhaps even contribute to my THAC film (which is now looking to be upwards of 15 minutes...), a Johnny Thunder film, and perhaps some extras. - All of that on top of finishing up some voice acting and brickfilm scoring some films I'm a bit late on.
But, at least I've got my Beatles collection to listen to during all of that.
