So I wrote a web series, called Other Men, and the trailer was released today, for your viewing. Give ‘er a look, and if you like it, please take a moment to share it with others. For more information about Other Men, follow us on Twitter and Facebook!
How I wound up writing a web series:
The characters of Other Men originate from a short film I wrote a while ago. I showed the script to filmmaker friends Illya Klymkiw and Stephanie Coffey, both of whom generously (and patiently) showed me the ropes of writing for the screen. Many, many drafts later, the three of us realized that this project would work best as a web series. Stephanie would direct, and Klymlove Incorporated (Illya & Adam Klymkiw) would produce. This would be the production company’s second web series, after the hilarious Dick Sibblies, PI.
I got to work writing. Lots of revisions took place with feedback from the director and the producer. The result was seven really promising episodes of internet-distributed television that the three of us were eager to set to film.
Casting took forever. (Did you know that casting takes forever? I did not know that and now I do.) But we snagged incredibly talented actors for the primary roles, all three of whom seemed born for their respective parts: Nathan Carroll, G Kyle Shields, and Jonathan Nathaniel. The characters I made up while sitting at my desk suddenly had actual bodies and faces now, and that was cool. We assembled an equally-talented (and enormous) crew, and we made a plan for procuring funding. Launching this trailer is a big part of that plan — so I hope you like it enough to share it. And then we got down to filming. So that’s how this happened.
The first episode will be released in the coming months! Cast and crew interviews will be coming forth sporadically until then.
The more you view/share this trailer, the more likely it is that we’ll get the support we need to see the whole project through. Rather than cramming my confidence in the project any further down your throat, though, I’ll let the trailer speak for itself. Thanks!
