ANYway...Today was an excellent day. After helping my mom make a video on Movie Maker (and her finding out why I hate it, lol) I relaxed outside, reading and playing with my new cat, Tink. Then came adventure! I picked up Amy from lab and we went to Covington Park to meet up with Sara, Jill, and Sanaa. The rest of the night consisted of Chinese food, GADS, Weldon Peete trekking, and planning a web series.
And speaking of web series...I've started watching several of those recently and I thought I'd mention them here.
First off, there's Job Hunters, a show about young adults literally fighting for jobs in a Hunger Games type arena. But the series is about more than the combat; it's about the competitors' interactions in the safe house, where they're forced to live together outside the arena.
The next web series I got addicted to was Lizzie Bennett Diaries, a modern take on Pride and Prejudice presented in vlog form. It's pretty self-explanatory, and very witty. Also, Hank Green is the genius behind it, so need I say more?
And last but not least, there's Squaresville, a show about two teenage girls stuck in their small town but desiring much bigger adventures. (Thanks, Sanaa, for the recommendation!)
All of these shows are fairly new, so you can catch up quickly if you want to watch, and all can be found on YouTube.
And this got me thinking: Everyone else is doing it. Why don't we make a web series? The episodes are short, and it's more flexible than trying to make a movie, as I was hoping to do this summer. I'm not saying that making a web series would be easier, or less ambitious...but possibly just a bit more doable. And tonight a lot of good ideas were thrown around, so I'm pretty excited! Excited and thankful that I have such cool friends, who not only play along with my film making passions, but share those passions. Thanks, guys. :)
P.S. I just discovered that Ryan Seiler does Christian music in addition to already being awesome in Ministry of Magic! Epic win!
