So this could get interesting.
First an update. Everything is going great. Let me break that down and get into the details… oh… I can’t.
The problem (and I admit it’s a great problem to have) is that the closer Slingers gets to being made a lot of things have to slide into position. Every time one of these boxes gets ticked or a lever gets pulled the right way then our instinct is to jump on Twitter and spill. But because so many things are dependent on so many other things we can’t do that. And damn, it’s frustrating.
So we had a conversation about this and came up with an idea. What if we chose another show on the Sleepydog slate and opened up the development process as completely as we possibly could and just see what happens…
So that’s what we’re going to do.
Right now we’re working on a number of shows that are cued up behind Slingers and what we’d like to do with one of them is run a little online experiment and see if being this open this early will derail the process or not. The show we’ve picked to trial this on is a concept that I really like. It’s certainly not a lame duck that we’re leaving out here to sacrifice. I believe it’s an idea that could become a show that would hold its own against anything else on air right now, but I’m also keen to see how throwing open the development process effects it going forward.
Lots more to dig into the hows and whys behind this and that’s just one of the reasons to do it. To create conversation about all aspects of the process.
But for now let’s just revist a question I asked on Twitter late last night:
Answers after the break…
