Finally, I have some real goals.

Goal 1. Meet with the writer/producer of the new project I am involved with to break down their script. So they can create a second draft. :white_check_mark:

Goal 2. Network in order to create a team interested in the project. Using that team create a demo for the show. :white_check_mark:

Goal 3. A budget for the pilot. Practically plan out how the pilot would be made and develop a budget that is practical :x: We didn’t get round to budgeting but we are working towards it.

Goal 4. Develop my skills personally to help the project in any way I can in whatever my role develops to be. :white_check_mark:

Hopefully, I can get some of this done and some work towards it. I am really excited this month to work on this new project. Just need to make sure I don’t forget to do my actual uni work.

Kind of coasting this month since February went so smoothly for me.

  • Table read
  • Create shooting schedule for Season 4 of The Spell Tutor
  • Write another VFX 101 column (I have a topic in mind, but suggestions are welcome)

But alas I must wait until I get home to really get a grasp on what I can accomplish. This will be my placeholder.

The well is running dry on topics for my micro-column so if anyone has any suggestions I’m all ears. Thanks!

(William E. Spear) #6

A welcome topic would be how you find the key resources beyond your skill set while navigating an introvert’s mindset.

(Ghetto Nerd Girl) #7

Interesting! When you say resources do you mean like finding locations and crew etc? I have an article similar to that but could dive deeper I suppose.

(William E. Spear) #8

Mostly crew. With emphasis on director, DP, and editor. Thank you.

(Ghetto Nerd Girl) #9

I will see what I can whip up! Thanks!

(Ghetto Nerd Girl) #10

(Ghetto Nerd Girl) #11

Are you all moved in?

(Bri Castellini) #12

Yes! Everything is chaos and I still don’t have a mail key to my new place, but I am MOVED! Now I just have to find everything and set up my new place lol

(Mary Julia DeCarlo) #17

Release the 2nd and 3rd episodes of Everyone Else Has
Complete rewrites on episodes 5 and 6
Plan filming for the next batch of episodes in April

(Marina Tait) #18

Alright, I’ll join in…

  1. Stay sane until the final cut of the documentary I am editing is finished. Deadline is March 23. It is an unorganized mess. (Not my fault, I just started and am organizing a pre-existing mess.) This will occupy most of my time and energy and may keep me from spending time on the rest of my goals.

  2. Get more people to watch my webseries! As of tonight the Pilot episode has 477 views. I’d like to see that increase to over 1000.

  3. Continue to post on social media several times a week to draw viewers to the series. Come up with interesting, non-repetitive things to post.

(Bri Castellini) #19

Good luck! And be sure to share the link to your pilot in one of our Friday shameless self promo posts so we can help you get those views!

(Chris Hadley) #20

Finalize scripts for episodes 3, 4 and 5 of my series (The Late, Late News)
