I’ve often seen shows cite ‘Production Difficulties’ for delays. ¬†I think I see what they mean, or at least I have a rough idea of what it COULD mean.
For me, Production Difficulties ™ are currently encompassing the ‘but it takes a long time’ end of the scale, and issues caused by a reluctance to write a full and carefully constructed script, saying ‘oh I’ll fix it in post’, which is a truly poisonous phrase as anyone who has ever worked on a film of any kind will¬†attest¬†to.
I’m also expecting the production speed of my web-show to speed up with time. ¬†The pilot was a learning experience, this¬†episode¬†will be a slightly more refined product with any luck, and in a few months time, I’ll be able to get them done much much quicker.
The main reason I’m posting this drivel is actually to say thank you for watching. ¬†My stats from Blip TV say it has been watched just under 150 times, which is in my mind a big number. ¬†I realise lots of blogs and sites get traffic in numbers that make my eyes water and my brain hurt, but I’m inordinately proud of my three figure number.
