Why You Need to Make & Post Your Own Videos

R'ha CaptureWe’ve captured a moment of “R’ha”

It’s called peer production, which simply means that you’re not a pro film/video maker – yet – creating your videos for your own pleasure and that of others and/or as calling cards so you can become a pro.

A lot of people pooh-pooh the idea because “who wants to give away something for nothing,” but having your work out there can pay off in many ways – especially if the right person sees what you’ve done and falls in love with it.

5 months ago, back in January, 2013,  Kaleb Lechowski posted his 6 minute short, R’HA, on Vimeo. A few days ago, Rick McCallum, former chief of Lucasfilm and one of the producers of STAR WARS, announced that he’s going to turn R’HA into a film that in our eyes is going to be a major one. As in how can it not be a major motion picture when Steve Tzirlin of STAR WARS: CLONE WARS is also aboard as another producer and Matthew Graham of LIFE ON MARS is going to write the expanded script?

Big congrats from TVWriter™ to Kaleb Lechowski and, from us to all our visitors, here’s a sample of the kind of work that can lead to the career you’ve been wanting all your life:

Peer Production: R’HA by Kaleb Lechowski

Whoa! This is awesome! Everyone here at TVWriter™ who saw it fell in love with this story featuring an alien soldier and his robotic captors. Damn thing is breaktakingly realistic, and word is that because of it, creator Kaleb Lechowski now has some serious Hollywood agent-type representation.

Gonna be fun watching this guy snatch the brass ring. (Hey, that’s the phrase. We would’ve changed it to “gold ring,” but now that we live in L.A. we’re thinking brass is more fitting anyway. Oy!)
