Ladies and Gentlemen... The Playhouse Soap Opera Episode One
A year ago, I got a call from Richard Van Slyke asking me if I might be interested in co-writing a webseries with him. He was thinking it would be a soap opera set in a community theater. I innocently agreed.
A year later, episode one is now on the web. Welcome to The Playhouse Soap Opera!
Richard's been a fab producing partner and I've had a great time getting to chew up the scenery as this character. She's one of those stock characters I've always carried around in my back pocket and am THRILLED whenever I can pull her out and step into her shoes.
I've also been inducted by fire into the wonderful world of production and post-production. If you ever have any questions about any glitch that might possibly come up when using Sony Vegas, feel free to drop me a line BECAUSE I EXPERIENCED EVERY ONE OF THEM.
That said, there is something empowering about my transformation into computer geek. I know RAM. I know cores. I know luminocity and color matching plugins and changing my user preferences without blowing up my hard drive. I have installed cards in to my mutheffin muthaboard, muthaeffers. I've got an HD camera and sound systems and lighting kits. I'm tearing my way through sound scrubbers. And I no longer have a dining room because I have a production office now.
So enjoy this most recent baby! I promise she's a charmer.
