Newest chapter of Party Girl featuring the hugely talented Alan Chow and Mo Lindholm, alongside the other usual ass kicking cast members.
We had some audio issues and some FX issues as well, due to disagreements with the FX guy we had set last year.
More reason why we are hoping to raise some money to better the second season production and ideally come back and remaster season one as well. You can check out the fundraising campaign at http://www.gofundme.com/PartyGirlWebSeries
But still the performance of Chow, Lindholm and the others are still worth seeing.
Thursday night myself and Party Girl cast members DJ Economou, Jenni Mabrey and the new Rachel Buchanan, Cait Pool, had a chat Thursday night with the hosts of SCNS: Live, a Dallas based web show that highlights entertainment and popculture and gives love to Dallas areas projects and people.
It was fun for all to have another avenue to chat about Party Girl and bring some attention to the show.
We’re hoping to connect with the SCNS crew again for some on set features in the future. Check out the link synced up to our appearance.
And then go and check the whole episode of course.
Do you Roku?
If you do, great. If you don’t, you should.
Well because beginning this weekend, from what we’re told if you use Roku check out the Unlock Television channel to see Party Girl! It’s in the Movies/TV section on Roku.
Check it out and let us know if it is there.
More eyeballs on Party Girl!
Party Girl Web Series Chapter V
Party Girl Web Series Chapter V (Close Captioned Version)
So we are already in the midst of working on translating the Party Girl scripts into Spanish so we can have Spanish subtitled versions of the episodes, but we admittedly did not make plans to address another group, deaf and hearing impaired audiences.
Captioned Web TV has a Facebook page and blog site that spotlights web series with closed captions. Upon visiting the site, we saw where it noted a list of benefits for captioning your web series including
- Increased viewership – Captioning has been proven to increase views.
- Discovery Digital Networks – in this promotional article, a captioning service reports that adding captioning increased views by over 7 percent.
- In an article on Streaming Media, a YouTube product manager reports that in a test by YouTube itself, captioning was found to increase views by four percent. In addition, YouTube does NOT use automatic captioning when indexing videos. YouTube only uses edited captions for indexing.
- You can get additional views for an older show by going back and adding captions.
- Increased viewing time – Subtitling/captioning has been shown to increase how much time people spend watching a video to completion. In a promotional article, ReelSEO reports on a captioning service study that demonstrates as much as a 40% increase in viewing time.
- Helping Speakers of Other Languages Learn to Read – Captioning has been proven to help adults learning English as a second language. You can have the satisfaction of knowing you may have helped such people with their literacy skills.
- Helping Children Learn to Read – Captioning has been proven to help children learn to read. You can have the satisfaction of knowing you may have helped a child to improve his or her reading skills. Learn about current research on the Captions for Literacy website.
And these were only a few of the benefits listed.
Since we’re so used to the fact that we hear, we don’t think about those who can’t. It’s a lesson, you have to make sure you include everyone as you consider the audiences you’re trying to reach.
We started our caption plan with the latest chapter and we will be working our way backward. One we get them all, the blog site will list them.
…is the Web Series Channel.
Here’s hoping more eyeballs find their way to the show and we can pick up some more viewers and fans.
TaurianFilms.com is live.
Simply put that is great long awaited news. After plenty of starts and stops and false hope we finally have our site working through Wix.com.
There’s not a ton of bells and whistles and flash and all that fancy stuff, but we don’t need it right now. We just need a nice smooth way to deliver our content to people and that’s what we have and we’re pretty darn thrilled about that fact.
The site is Party Girl dominated right now, but there will be information other projects Taurian Films is developing including other web series projects and the feature film project, HTB, starring Annie Cruz and to be produced under the Jigsaw Entertainment umbrella of Bj Lewis and Jermaine Spencer.
The site will be moving and changing and evolving as we figure the best ways and means and content to display on the site.
Take a few minutes and check it out…actually…take 17 minutes and check out Chapter V of Party Girl while you are there.
