Sorry, I have not put out a new post until now. My dog almost died this past Sunday. I have been nursing her back to health. She is doing much better! Thank God. And all you animal lovers out there you know the dreaded sentence by Vets ( we might have to put your dog to sleep). She had bloat which happens to a lot of dogs when there stomach twists and they died from lack of blood to other organs. I got her to a hospital in time. It was touch and go because of her age but I could not let her go I had to save her. Athena my dog is getting back to her old self. They had to take out some of her stomach and her spleen.
About my Kickstarter Introduction:
So, this blog is about my introduction for Kickstarter and how a simple one minute video clip can be very confusing at times. Because it is just YOU! For Redneck Weddings I went through a series of different locations or themes…first one was just me talking into the camera with a wedding veil on and over a friends Kyle Vale the actor that is in the wedding scene of the trailer!
He has a great camera and almost a year ago he brought his camera to the taping of the reading of the pilot Redneck Weddings.
He has a Dog named Penny. A mix breed and I am sorry I don’t have her photo but she is a diva of sorts. The outtakes of our pairing were very funny!
(The outtakes were deleted) So, that is why I am describing it.
During filming, I sat on the couch talking and of course Miss Penny would come over and lick me on my face as I was talking, sit next to me, look at the camera and yawn and walk away. I guess Penny is a diva and a critic too. A clue that my intro was boring! Then I tried in filming in my place with old camera that we had. But too dark and the sound was awful. So, as I got closer to launching my Kickstarter Campaign I was not sure what to do. My trailer is up on the site but they say that you should introduce yourself as just you.
So I thought why not go back to where I had the reading of the pilot the theatre and start talking about it. Hard to believe but it is almost a year ago that I had my first reading of Redneck Weddings the pilot script. Here is an invite to the reading that I also created.
But it was way too much money for a few hours. That was nixed. I kept writing different versions of it about four re-writes by the time I settled on what I had in mind which is just me being me. I am what I am…you know the song.
About a week before I launched we filmed it on a flip phone in my backyard the intro that you can see on my Kickstarter site. I managed the building where I live so I am always cleaning. So when you go on it you see the opening and know how I got the idea.
I want to say Thank You!
So, I am at the end of this blog. I am waiting for funding for Redneck Weddings to be turned into a web series. I will be back. I enjoy writing this blog about my passion project and I hope I can continue giving you the back story. Only next time it will be the actual pre-production of Redneck Weddings the Web Series if I am lucky enough to get to that point and of course there will be drama.
Thank you so much for your support and comments and I hope you had a good time reading my blog and I hope I have the opportunity to accomplish my goal of shooting six webisodes. Please continue to send me comments!
