I just fell into it. I had on the job training. For the first three chapters I had my finger over the microphone and I didn't even know it!@
Have you had to coordinate long-distance production? If so, what advice do you have on how best to accomplish that?
Eventually I figured out where to put the camera and how to start getting better lights. My advice is. Do what you know. Do it cheap. Use your friends - Make it fun
To clarify- you fell into staff writing on TV? What contributed most to you getting in those rooms, in your opinion?
I have not - Everything is filmed in my house. So I walk from the kitchen to the livingroom to the bedroom and I'm done.!
Oh on tv!
I wrote a few hit plays that TV people saw and they started hiring me
In 1994 I wrote a play called Teen Girl and suddenly I was asked to write a bunch of teenshows
Hey Andy! waves Welcome! Great to see you, too!
Hey Kate! waves Great to see you here, too! Welcome!
That's really impressive! Congrats! So your advice would be to be writing and putting your work out into the world and hope something connects? Is there anything more... targeted or active you would suggest, based on your experience?
Thank you NIgel. Kristian doesn't like being in front of the camera!
Bite my nerf cannon.
What percentage of your cast/crew is personal friends that you knew prior to making the show?
I would say about 80 %
On the subject of tearful breakdowns... How do you deal with on-set conflict, when firing isn't really an option and you don't have the budget to reschedule?
I am terrible at marketing, hustling and getting the word out. I tend to just make art and see what lands. I wish I had more of the self promotion gene
what have you learned from each successive season you've made? what can you recommend to other creators wanting to keep their content fresh after so many episodes and seasons?
Tell him to get in front of the camera. You have used my insult in perfect context!!!!
Iam old fashioned, contact me on FacebooK!@
Hey Meg! waves Welcome!
