Finally, Chapter XIII of the Party Girl Web Series is out and on the interwebs, ending the saga that is season one. As I sit back and look at the body of work that is the beginning of Rachel Buchanan’s journey to becoming a hero, I see lots of things. I see tons of people willing to donate their time and energy to bring the story to life. I see lots of talented people from all over north Texas. I see lots of sacrifices made by others and myself because we believed in the story and the characters.
It was certainly a learning experience. I have done a couple smaller series in the past, a fan film and a short 48hr film contest entry, but this was the first project of this caliber I ever attempted. Choosing to go at it with only the money I had in my pocket and support from my other half in Stephney and lucking into some amazing people. These people put up with lots of shoots, early shoots, late shoots, long shoots, reshoots…all because they believed in the story. I’d be here all day trying to name everyone involved in this in front of the camera and behind the camera and trying to mention them, I’d hate to leave anyone out. Suffice to say if you had any hand in the Party Girl web series production, on screen, off screen, sharing the Facebook page official site, anything at all that helped grow the show, you have my unending thanks and praise.
As I look over the episodes there are of course things I see that I wish could have gone another way when we filmed. A lot of our shoots were trying to get the highest percentage of the written script filmed. It didn’t always happen due to personnel, locations and resources on hand or resources we had that evaporated hours to mere minutes before scheduled shoots. There are technical things of course, lighting, sound, shot framing that I am learning and hope I am improving on.

Cait Pool, Party Girl for season two!!

Cait Pool, Party Girl for season two!!

It’s a start. It’s a benchmark and it’s a place to go from. We created a character and a world from nothing and I can’t help but smile at that fact.
Thanks to you all. Thanks to Jeanne for donning the mask and kicking things off for Rachel Buchanan.
The baton is being passed now to Cait Pool, a talented young actress, who, mark my words, is going to be big one day soon. I am happy to have her giving her time and talent to Party Girl.
As we go forward we are grinding every day to get more people to notice Party Girl. We have convention appearances, we are teaming up with comic book stores for promotions and we are on one Roku channel, with another to come soon, a streaming web site and a local Texas television channel.
Do I wish for greater returns much sooner, of course. But every day is a step forward and another opportunity to put my nose to the grindstone and get Party Girl out there. We are doing great things and more people need to see it and I am going to do my best to make sure that happens.
Hopefully you all will continue to come with me along this crazy ride.

Yep, that happened. And it was fun. The gentleman behind the Unlock Television Channel invited Bj on to “Sports, Hip Hop & Beer,” talk about Party Girl.

It was a good experience and anytime there is a chance to promote Party Girl, we’re going to take it

In addition we have spoke with Madness Comics & Games in Denton about promotional opportunities and they are all set to help us make it happen. 10710821_848007251878989_6342173935325627934_nHopefully that is the first of many businesses that will jump on board and help us out. We’re pushing the fact that we are local and the production is local in hopes that people will rally behind that.

We shall see how it goes.

One step closer to the season one finale! Check it out! Like it! Share it! Help us spread the word!

I mean I have a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the (awesome) Louisiana Tech University, but maybe I should have went for an engineering one as well. Why? Maybe it would help give me some insight and extra skill when it comes to engineering attention for Party Girl.

What do you think?

Now I know, I know, it’s a slow grind to build a brand, and establish something from basically nothing, but I want more firepower in doing it.

We are loading some promotional barrels coming up in the near future with cons and other promotional activities. And we’re always looking to add more to the mix.

Just trying to grind…and grind….annnnnnnnnd…still grind some more.

Updated Party Girl event Calender:

DENTON – Another chapter in the ongoing super hero web series, Party Girl, has hit the web!

The series, written, filmed, edited and produced by Bj Lewis and his group, Taurian Films, continues the story of Rachel Buchanan and her masked crime fighting journey.

Chapter IX, “Into the Darch-ness” continues to feature great Texas talent in front of the camera including Jeanne Lampley in the title role of Party Girl, Giovannie Cruz as Red Rose, Caden Blevins as Darchart, Ada Perez as Connie Lopez and DJ Economou as Edward Buchanan, Rachel’s father.

This episode, which can be found on the Facebook page for the show or the official site, http://www.taurianfilms.com, finds Party Girl running afoul of a vigilante from a neighboring city.

“Super hero team ups have to happen. They just do. So I was excited to include one of my own in Party Girl,” Lewis said of the episode. “I think Jeanne and Caden had a nice chemistry with each other and that translated to the onscreen interaction between Party Girl and Darchart.”

Filming the episode was a massive effort as all of them have been for Lewis and the crew.  The episodes were shot over the course of 2013 in and around Denton, Aubrey, Boyd, Lewisville and Carrollton. 

“It was pretty cold when we filmed the warehouse scenes for this episode. The building was an icebox, had to be about 50-something in there. But everyone stuck it out and brought everything they could to their roles.”

Lewis said it is a testament to the talent he has been blessed to work with on this project.

He noted this episode as well as all of them have some quirks due to time and money constraints.

“I say money like we actually have some. This has been a little to no budget production from the word go and I have been running it as mostly a one man band. Not that I regret any of that,” Lewis said. “And I have picked up great crew help along the way.”

The goal now and continually, Lewis said is to get the show out in front of people.

“To show the work of these talented actors and hopefully someone will come along and say ‘wow, look what these guys did with only a few dollars. Let me help them out and see what they can really do. That’s the goal.”

Lewis and company are currently filming season two of Party Girl.
