I was VERY sick for this episode as well as the next one, but thanks to Jared and John (Gaffer and DP) I don’t look as hellish as I did in reality on the day, haha. I actually had to take a nap during these episodes, which means I was VERY sick because I am kinda am a control freak and like to be there for every shot. Sean Becker is a fantastic director/editor, and my producing partner Kim Evey had my spot behind the monitor covered, so the episode is great.
We attempted to really build into the ending of the season from this point on, it’s (yet again) a different style for the show, and our actors are really fantastic and work together so well seeing them in person together is so fun.
It’s very interesting what works and what doesn’t in webisode-length episodes. Do people enjoy the cliffhangers? Do they prefer standalone episodes? Do they like a simple storyline or several woven together? How much can you pack in without it being too confusing? Lots of questions and no answers because it’s still evolving. That’s the great thing though, the freedom to do what you believe in and see if it hits.
Hope you enjoy!
