Fall: A Series
« on: August 06, 2012, 04:18:02 PM »
Incidentally, I have been performing in a web series over the past few months. It is called Fall: A Series.

In it, I play a police officer who decides to start taking a cut of the drug rackets. It is amazing in so many ways.

The YouTube channel is here. As of this posting there are three episodes posted. The fourth is in production.

Finally! I was this close to posting the link myself. I second the recommendation - it's funny and (goes away to watch Episode 2, while there's a pause at work).

You know what...

I like it.

I mean, it's not The Wire or Pulp Fiction, but for an amateur effort, tis a fun watch. I'm eager to see more story and character development.

JC, you look good!

And your 'brother' looks familiar. Has he done anything mainstream yet?

I'd like to see some story and character development too. Episode 4 should be pretty wild, though.

It has been pointed out that playing "stern, disapproving guy" is not much of a stretch for me. Thanks, though.

Not to my knowledge, but I can ask.

Not starting a new topic... So, Dude, awesome. I just watched the trailer.

I'd like more details about the project. How did it come about? Where does it take place?

Your acting seemed very believable and natural. 

Edit: I didn't see episode 1 listed.

Episode 1 is here. It was shot in Madison, Wisconsin.

As for how it came about, Luke Kokinos, the young man who wrote and directed the series, knew me from my local theater work and asked me to participate. And as I've discovered, actors will do pretty much anything you ask them to do...

Fall. Ominous.  I am glad you are following your passion.  So few of us do that.
Interesting camera work/edits.  I love both characters in the scene. What was bleeped at the beginning of 5.1?

If it's the bit I'm thinking of, where I'm telling the girl to meet me at a particular address, the bleeping was a deliberate gimmick by Luke. I think the idea was as though the viewer was watching surveillance tapes and wasn't supposed to know exact locations. (Never mind the fact that addresses had been given out earlier in the series...)

Knowing that it was going to be censored, I ad-libbed the address as "1313 Redacted Lane."

Congrats, dude.
