Light & Dark… Black & White… Good & Bad… who would you rather be?

20 Jun

Last year I wanted to learn more about creating “crazy” characters and utilized social media to reach out to actors, writers, and creators in order to learn the different perspectives. As a mental health professional, I have found that I lose a bit when I watch something as I tend to sit and observe the characters- looking to diagnose, to see their flaws, to learn who they are, etc. Usually I can turn it off and focus on the story but sometimes it is harder than others. Especially after a long day with clients.

If I Can Just Have 5 Minutes Of Your Time~ Web Series reviews, issue 1, Vampire Mob

30 Jul

When I started this site back in March, one of the things I knew I wanted to do was showcase and review things like comics and web series. Well, Stewart accepted the challenge of looking at comics with his ongoing series, As Long As I Don’t Wear Tights Or Spandex, so now I want to get started with a look at web series (I want to also touch on web comics, but that’s another set of posts).

I’ve gotten involved over the last few years with a lot of people that either work on or are attached in some way to a lot of different web series, and thus they keep coming to my attention. Just recently we’ve showcased Tara Platt & Yuri Lowenthal due to my work with Action Flick Chick regarding their work, Shelf Life the Series. So… these things just keep coming at me!

But for the first series up on the block, I want to share one that is near and dear to me- in part because as a supporter of it, the ups & downs of this little show have sent me on an emotional rollercoaster. But also because the creator has become a friend and really, when doing these things you should pimp your buds first, right? Thought so.

An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail. ~ Edwin Land

Some time ago, technology changed and made it so that anyone with a dream and some talent could make a movie- OK, the talent wasn’t always there, but it was if you wanted your work to actually be seen. The technology was readily available, at almost realistic for the average Joe prices, and the ability to get your work out to the masses was relatively simple. Of course, there was still a cost to it, so most people just made simple home movies to share with friends and family about their childs first steps or their wedding or what have you. It was better than the slide presentations my dad used to give, but just barely. Continue reading
