This is probably my favorite rejected Channel 101 submission of the year.
This is a four hour lightning deal. The set includes all 32 episodes of the show and is marked down from its $49.97 list price.
This is my most prized possession. You should all go buy it.
My pilot I’m making is called “Intern Roommates part 1: Dating in LA” and it’s shaping up to be pretty great! Everything takes place in my apartment (in front of the big white wall, next to the fridge) and incorporates all the inside jokes that me and my roomies keep chuckling about (we watch Anchorman a lot!). Can’t wait for it to be shown on the big screen!
Quick question: do the shows have to be five minutes? I mean, what if they’re five minutes and twenty seconds? That’s only twenty second over! Come on! I have a killer 20 second “awkward pause” bit I need to keep in there. And the jokes need lots of room to breathe. We’re gonna be holding for laughs!
My script is currently 9 pages, but with the training/dancing/RaNDoMNeSS montage it’s gonna be about 11. I can send you the script if you send me a message here, but my lit. agent (my roomie) has to approve you first. My influences are Jim Jarmusch, P.T. Anderson, and my Boondock Saints poster.
CASTING MY CREW:
I’m looking for a DP with a Red Epic camera and those lenses that Kubrick used for Barry Lyndon. The job doesn’t pay and I won’t have food, but you WILL have the opportunity to DP more of my stuff in the future. You may even be bumped to cinematographer!
I’m looking for a Production Assistant with grip equipment who can do grip work and will be key in gripping the grip equipment. This is also known as a PA gig, and does not pay.
I’m also looking for a sound person who can hold two booms, since my show will be in stereo (duh). The sound job also does not pay (duh!).
Also, We’ll need some extras for the party scene if you guys can invite your friends to my place on Tuesday at 8AM. BYOB!
Thanks! I love this filmmaking community!
Sincerely, Paul Isakson, Artistic Filmmaker
We can’t even do a story fueled by that frustration [of South Park beating us to stories] because South Park already did a story fueled by their frustration of being in The Simpsons’ hundred-year shadow.
Among all the nominations coming up this award season, you might have overlooked the ones for the awesome homegrown talent known and seen here in LA in Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab's Channel 101.
There were so many great short form programs such as Car Jumper, Marquis Vs., Baby Mentalist, and more that graced the screen of the Downtown Independent as well as the screens of many a laptop connected to the Internet.
Details on the actual awards ceremony, but now enjoy the list of nominees that includes such categories as copyright infringement.

ps: I am from Texas and thank you for not messing with us Mr. Harmon…
Many friends have come to expect an annual holiday video of me where I’ll take a quick minute and film myself dancing around like an idiot, in order to blow off some steam from my various end-of-the-year projects. Some friends even feel their holidays incomplete without this annual video. Well alright then! Here it is, Holidays 2013!
Ben and I are trying to make some easy money. We got drunk and wrote this song and made the video the next day. You don’t even have to watch it, just go click that red “vote” button on the bottom right. We’re never going to beat some 12 year old with a billion subscribers, but it’s not only up to the popular vote, so just do it and shut up. I’m a shit head and hate asking for this dumb crap.
Wade pretty much summed it up. At least it’s not a fucking Doritos commercial though. Those things are the worst.
