Hubby and I had an interesting day!
Many of you might not know that HORSE AND MAN was a TV series initially. We shot the pilot and all the episodes – but only completed the pilot (the pilot sells on Amazon – I get $.53 each time one sells).
The Series sat on a shelf at a big network for the duration of its contract. Now it is mine again – sitting, still unedited, on a shelf.
Anyway, we had an appointment at a division of NBC today. I had high hopes of landing some production work but the conversation turned in a different direction during the meeting.
The guy said to me that since my blog audience was large, and I had 13 episodes of horsey footage sitting on a shelf, I needed to create webisodes or podcasts of all of that footage – short snippets every Monday or something – and get syndicated that way.
He said that if my readers liked my videos, and they watched and gave the podcasts many (millions) of views, HORSE AND MAN would have a great shot at a series – or some kind of web hallmark anchorage.
BUT CAN’T I HIRE SOMEONE TO DO IT? OH WAIT, I HAVE NO MONEY…
Sure, it would be easy if I could hire an editor. But, they are around $225/hour.
Hmmm, how could I do this?
I could do it myself.
Ack. ACK! ACKACK!
Yes. I know…
Seems like a no-brainer.
I’m a L-O-U-S-Y editor. I totally stink at editing. It takes me forever…
And, since I know what good editing looks like, I know that I stink.
Not only that, I’d have to buy a new computer to hold all of that information. My computer is already too full… and too slow.
BUT TODAY WAS THE DAY I WAS GIVEN THE IDEA…
The truth is… I do know how to edit, I’m just slow and bad at it. And, the truth is, I do have all the equipment to at least get started… kinda.
Yes, I could do this.
And, if that is the way to get to the next level about the horses, then that is what I need to do.
I don’t have any better ideas…
So, you all heard it. He told me what to do.
Now, I just have to DO IT.
Just like I have to get back in shape, clean out all of my closets and ride Rojo…
What an opportunity – if I can make it happen!
SOME OLD VIDEOS, in case you haven’t seen them.
