...And off we go!
Welcome to the weekly blog for Sublets the web series!
First of all, thank you for checking out the website (which is still being polished) and thank you for clicking around! I want to extend the offer to send Caitlin and I a lil' note via the "CONTACT" tab if something is working or not working or confusing or brilliant or puzzling or whateveritisyoufeel. Since we started down the road of producing our own webseries there have been many firsts, but the biggest lesson so far is that this whole thing is a PROCESS. A long one. But a fun one. So please bear with us as ideas continue to become reality.
Speaking of reality, the reality is we are having so much fun putting Sublets together! From conceiving the idea, to a first draft, to rewrites, to shoot planning, to running a REAL shoot, to now overseeing post-production, this has been the most eyeopening and incredibly fulfilling experience. I am living the dream rather than just dreaming it. I am so eager to share with you all the hard work that Caitlin, myself, and everyone in our cast and on our crew have put into the set-up for a complete first season. There is a smile on my face every time I work on Sublets and can't wait to keep this ball rolling.
So much is continuing to happen and this blog is going to be where Caitlin and I highlight to anyone who will listen what we have done, what we are planning on doing, and what we need help with. So please check in every week for updates and "The Latest" developments with Sublets.
So what's next? Well let me begin by telling you what we have done.
In a nutshell, we have a pilot. It has been written. It has been filmed. It is near the end of post-production. And, it is great! It is already better than I could have ever imagined 'two-actors-who-have-never-produced-a-thing-in-their-lives' could put together with no budget and no director, relying solely on the generosity and talents of their friends! We have an outline for a ten episode first season written. And, we have more enthusiasm than ever before for a project so close to being given breath.
Well, honestly, a lot. This week Caitlin and I are in talks with a composer to have original scoring for the pilot and first season of the show, and are working with a graphics designer out of Portland, OR to help with our branding and logo. We have to put all that together into a final-cut of the pilot and then cut a teaser to be released on this website shortly. Additionally, I have been working like mad for the last week-plus on our website and all the social media we have attached to it..banner pics still need to be updated, tweets/posts need to be scheduled, and our next blog entry still has to be conceived!
Basically, we have hours of work still to do before we show you what so many hours have been put into already. But! We. Are. Doing it. It's a PROCESS. And, the process my friends, is something worth coming along for. Can't wait to share it with you.
Did I mention I am also learning how to blog in this very moment? No?!? Well, I am. (Literally the last time I did this was my live journal in high school and that was a disaster, don't go looking, it's all private now.)
