Oh snap. Is there a story end in sight, or are you planning on continuing to make new seasons until it stops being fun?
Favorite character(s) to write for?
We will be filming this until we are all using walkers
I love writing for Viv and TJ
The trashier characters
I also love putting Phil in bed with someone new all the time
Ave 43 is always an action packed ten minutes! The short format leaves little room for waste. Are there rules of thumb you use to help pare down all the material shot into this succinct time frame? How to you still allow the finished product to “breathe,” so it doesn’t feel frantic?
What else are you working on right now that you’re excited about?
It’s always much appreciated. xo
I will drop whole story lines if needed in order to let something breathe -
I try to cut out the ‘air’ as much as possible, or use a kind of shorthand montage effect in order to fast forward time. Since I don’t need to use establishing shots except rarely, things can move very fast
My new play El Nino is going up at The Rogue Machine Theater in Hollywood in January -
My play Heartbreak Help is getting a revival in September - I have written a pilot -
Do you watch other web series? What are some of your favorites?
Do you have an agent? How did you get one?
Hey Annie! waves Great to see you here! Welcome!
I have an agent- I got one by writing a few hit plays in town and then getting a TV deal at UNiversal back in the 90s
Chloe Taylor, who plays Debbie on Ave 43 has a very funny show called “Mop and Lucky” about amateur sleuths - love it!@
I tend to watch lectures from college campuses on Youtube more than dramas
Any advice for reaching out to agents, if you have a portfolio of writing you’re proud of and some completed web/short film projects to showcase?
If anyone else is interested in checking this out:
THE MOP AND LUCKY FILES is a great show. I covered it for Snobby Robot (web series blog) a few years ago.
Chloe Taylor is a great actor, friend and drinking buddy!
