LB: What’s the Connection between the Silver Surfer and My Favorite Failed Web Site?

by Larry Brody

TVWriter.Com has been a very successful website for a very long time. But that hasn’t kept me from thinking about ways to make our little home away from home a bit more than it’s been.

Got to thinking about a website Dan Davison and I put together about five years ago. The object behind PeerProducer.Com was to – for free – teach newbies how to make the best video they could. We never really got it flying for all the reasons most people don’t get things flying.

But today I ran across this promo video I made with another Dan, Dan Reynolds, President of TV station KTO 8 in the garden spot (I mean this) of Harrison, AR. And, dammit, I don’t care if it only got 187 views. I like it.

And now I’m getting the itch to make more.

Cthulhu Barbie…

…Because this is exactly the kind of thing television needs.

Cthulhu Barbie

Ideas are curious creatures, flitting about near invisible taunting just out of reach anyone that could really use it.And are just as likely to sink their fangs deep into someone who wasn’t paying any attention and now has to deal with idea guts splattered all over the back of their leg and palm.My unexpected idea bite came in the form of none other than a Cthulhu Barbie (hence the title of the post).
Now what follows is the long, meandering explanation for how I went about creating this monster and maybe I’ll figure out why as I go. Crazier shit’s happened.
It began, as it oddly rarely does, with a simple photoshop project (okay technically it began when my husband and I were looking at the weird collector Barbie doll options at Toys R Us, but that doesn’t come with any pictures).

A random idea, I slapped together and tossed out into the wilderness of the internet to entertain a handful of people.

Or so I thought. Dun-dun-DUNN!!!!

Soon my little image was being tweeted and retweeted; peated and repeated. I wake up to find my mention column filled with people asking me if it’s real, or assuming it is….

Read it all

Today’s official announcement: TV WRITER.COM CONTESTS CLOSE IN LESS THAN A WEEK

Gang–

Holy crap!!!

Only 5 days left to enter the current PEOPLE’S PILOT and SPEC
SCRIPTACULAR writing contests sponsored by TVWriter.Com and
Manner Movie Ltd. of Hong Kong. Entries are due by the end of the
day, Friday, June 1st.

Yes, for those who’ve been asking because we’ve obviously been
unclear, you’ve got all day Friday to get this job done. Whew.

And, if you’ve never heard of us before, here are the important bits:

The PEOPLE’S PILOT is for spec pilot scripts for original series.
Supplemental material such as series proposals is all well and good,

but all entries MUST include a pilot teleplay.

Your series can be any genre – drama, action, sitcom, reality, game,
lifestyle, animation, kids’ show, you name it – and can be intended for
broadcast networks, cable channels, PBS, even local stations,
regardless of country. All we ask is that your entry be written in
English so we can read it!

The SPEC SCRIPTACULAR is for spec scripts written for current or
recent TV series. Your completed teleplay can be for any existing

drama, action show, or sitcom, or for an original TV movie in any
genre, and can be intended for broadcast networks, cable channels,
PBS, and local stations in any country (as long as your spec is written
in English.)

You can find out about the prizes and do the entry thing, blah, blah,
blah at:

http://peoplespilot.com/
http://specscriptacular.com/

Speaking of prizes, let me be upfront here. Sure, there’s money and some goodies, but the most important prizes any aspiring can get are public acknowledgement and approval, and, above all else,
professional credibility. TVWriter.Com gives you all those things
in spades. In fact, that’s why we exist.

Don’t just sit there. Write!
