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.
