And…actually I have taken to calling them chapters.

I like the sound of that.

At any rate, here is this week’s episode!

Party Girl’s first episode dropped online Monday, a week after an advance screening held at the Texas Theatre, the first episode is online. While we were going to launch with a double-sized first episode, we decided to split the episode into two, so there will be 13 first season episodes rather than 12.

Response has been positive so far, the only major issue or critique has been with audio in some places, which I knew was coming. The way we had to film the first season we were limited with our audio options both during filming and in post since it was just me doing it, be we already have…

we’re excited to get started with that to show those improvements.

But that’s not to put down the first season in any way or look past it. You have some epic performances from all the actors involved from the main players to those in the background. I would endeavor to name some here, but I’d feel bad inevitably leaving out some individuals. Needless to say it has been an incredibly collaborative effort that I could not have completed without the help of many people from casting, to cast to crew and everything in between.

And of course Stephney Keller, who is responsible for much of this show being possible, I would be remiss not to mention her contributions as well.

We made something great here and I am glad people are bearing witness to it at long last.

Party Girl Banner

Banner to be on display Monday. Thanks to Cooper’s in Denton, TX for the good work.

So very much to say and so little time to actually say it.

Monday fast approaches. So I will keep it simple!

The Texas Theatre
Dallas, TX

Be there and see Party Girl!

Yep, it’s going down.

The gauntlet is being thrown, the die are being cast and it’s time to unleash Party Girl on the masses.

It’s been months of hard work for the people involved, years of developing it for me and now, people get to see it all together.

I must admit it is exciting as much as it is a bit unnerving. Not in a bad way, but just wondering what people will say, if things will come across as I intend them to..

The screening will be at the Texas Theatre in Oak Cliff, March 10 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.

I knew ever since I had an entry for the 48hr Film Challenge screened at that theatre that I wanted to do it again. Something specifically focused on my work. And I told my actors early on I wanted to have the first episode at least on the big screen. For the cool factor and for all the work that has gone into it, I believe it deserves that kind of spotlight and recognition for those involved.

The clock is ticking on the day.

I am ready for it to get here and ready to see where Party Girl goes from here.

Last week came and went with a speed that I didn’t notice until now. Or maybe it’s because I, being a Denver Broncos fan, am trying to block the Super Bowl and basically everything leading up to it out of my mind.

 

Now with that blockage in place, I can focus on the awesome part of last week.

A story in this month’s edition of Blitz.

Blitz, a DFW-area magazine ran a story about the Party Girl web series. A staff writer for the publication has been following the page and the development and thought it would be cool to write a story on it.

I agree.

My 9 to 5 sees me writing stories about other people and other events and other things going on so this was one of the few times I have been on the other side. Hopefully it’s a sign of things to come as my show and my projects take on bigger and bigger levels of success. But for all the hardwork going into this show, it was nice to see it acknowledged in such a way.

And even if the target audience of blitz may not be one that is immediately pulled into the show, maybe it gets us an extra eyeball or two that we didn’t have before.

And to me that is worth everything.

Now to get Denton to pick it up, which is tougher sledding since I work for the paper.
