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 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.

Just a vlog type of update on the premiere date of the first episode of Party Girl.

The Cliff Notes version is we are moving it.

The longer version is in the following video:

Monday marked a great occasion as we took another step toward bringing HTB to life.

Me, Jermaine and Annie

Bj, Jermaine and Annie meeting summer 2012 in LA to talk all things HTB.

HTB is a screenplay written by me (Bj Lewis) a few years ago as part of the April Script Frenzy event. I had the character around for longer than that, and had started planning some aspects of it, but it was really Script Frenzy that gave me the kick in the pants to bang out a draft of the script.

Over the years, I got my brother from another mother, Jermaine Spencer involved in it, fulfilling dreams and aspirations the two of us have had our entire lives. And then the heavens opened and we got Annie Cruz involved in the project and things could really roll.

Last year, as mentioned on this blog before, while on a trip to California for Power Morphicon, Steph, Jermaine and myself met up with Annie and outlined the project and our intentions and got her fully on board.

We nailed down a potential budget and decided to go the crowdfunding route to bring the character to life. As part of that endeavor we have been planning the campaign, the videos, the perks all that fun stuff.

Monday, Jermaine got Annie in front of the camera to record her portion of the pitch video as well as recording content for some other videos we will post as the campaign goes on.

I plan on a longer blog on this and detailing the creative history between Jermaine and myself, but I just wanted to mark this step in the process.

It’s exciting and continues to motivate us.

And of course even with the movement on HTB, my primary focus on my end of the world in Texas is Party Girl and continuing to do what I need to do to bring it to life. Footage and project files are in the hands of Jason Terry who will do the FX, so ideally that goes smoothly. We will be working closer together in future episodes to make sure what we shoot makes it nice and easy for him to do his FX work.

Party Girl Still 1

A still from episode 1.7 “For My Sister” featuring Party Girl’s battle with Delilah, a thief from Angel City.

The search for music continues and the search for a grasp of when to use music and when not to continues. I realize larger projects have people specifically to handle the musical end of things, but this is one of a million other things I am handling myself for this project. But when in doubt, do it yourself right?

Soon, very soon, it will be released and years of hardwork can be seen by the public.


And of course more can be seen at…
