Hello everyone! My name is Zachary Michaels and I am the creator of the web series “Generation Z”. I’m primarily an actor but for this project I also took on roles behind the scenes as the producer, creator, and writer (along with 2 others); as well as playing the character of Arthur. I got a new appreciation for all that goes along with film making being there from pre production through post.
“Generation Z” follows the stories of 5 teens as their lives begin to intertwine after they each join this therapy/support group. So far we have only produced the first episode as we run an Indiegogo campaign (I financed the pilot myself) and as we finish up writing the first season. We have 6 more episodes in this season; the 5 main characters will get an episode focused on them with all the stories coming together in the finale. I’d love to come back when the first season is finished and get a review of the whole shebang.
Like I said this is my first time taking on roles in front and behind the camera so I’d like as much feedback as possible. I’d like to know your overall thoughts on the episode and potential for the overall series. Does the pilot make you want to see more of Generation Z? What would you want to see in future episodes? Any technical aspects that need work or that were done well? Anything too confusing? Any other thoughts you have (acting, cinematography, episode length, directing, etc.) ?

Excited to see what you all think!
