The 2nd episode of our CH101 show Skateboard Cop screened this weekend, and we came in 2nd place. As you no doubt know, 2nd place is the True 1st Place (due to channel 101’s archaic voting procedures), but I can’t help but think that if we had turned in a different cut of our show that we could have come in Fake 1st Place (actual 1st place).
When we were shooting, it became clear that the show was getting bogged down by the writing. It was nearly 7 pages long; no room for pacing, craft, or tact here.
In the edit I discovered a cleaner and overall better version of our show. I felt like it was the best version we could make, considering what we started with. Wade and Kelsy thought otherwise. I’m sure as writers, it’s not easy to hear that the words you typed into a computer program aren’t turning into the show you hoped for, but still…
I fought for this version and I lost. Still, I hope you like it.
