@alwaysafilmgeek Thanks so much, Emma. I really appreciate your thoughts on this, and I definitely know the feeling of being indecisive when it comes to decision making. That, as well as my communication with the actors and crew, is something I would like to work on. Especially with the actors, I want them to get advance notice for when I plan to shoot each episode, and when I plan to schedule everything.
I do have experience in Dropbox and Google Drive, though due to lack of space on my Google Drive I exclusively use Dropbox. As for trying to get everyone on the same page, it’s tough when you’re trying to oversee a production centered in two different states. I’ve even had a few Google Hangouts to discuss production issues, but not everyone was available at the times that I held those chats.
Now that you’ve mentioned what’s required of a showrunner, I will take those requirements into consideration when I put out my ad. I definitely want someone who has experience with both Dropbox and Excel spreadsheets (the latter to list contact info and tasks for the show). Good people skills and decisive leadership is also something I’ll definitely need when I look for someone to take over for me in running this show.
Thanks so much for this explanation, and for sharing your advice with me. Really appreciate it! Hope it helps everyone else here, too!
