Inspiration Monday #7 – Veil

By

Published May 20, 2013

I’ve seen a few different web series over the years but they all seemed to be comedy shows of varying quality most not so good. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen any that are thrillers or dramas. Do they exist and I’ve never found them or is nobody making them?

With that in mind I started to think about what kind of show I would make and an idea came to me could you tell a story made up of entirely of 52 60 to 90 second webisodes?  If you did how would you go about structuring the script and producing it. The script for each webisode would only be about page and that means there isn’t time to waste but by the same token you don’t want it to be rushed.

He’res my rough off the cuff draft of a first episode

Episode 1

Reversed images in pale blue flow rapidly from the top left to the centre of the screen replaced by a glowing red light in the centre of a black screen.

The song repeats but the dance changes.

Will it play out differently this time?

Or will end as it always does?
