Celebrating With A Grand Finale And Gearing Up For A Second Season Of When Fact Met Fiction

Okay, Since the Grand Finale of When Fact Met Fiction we HAVE been writing – a lot.  Just not on the blog.  And we are sorry for being silent for a bit. But we’re back, so let us catch you up on what’s been happening.

The Top 5 Things That Have Kept Us Too Busy To Write Blog Posts:

  1. We had a GRAND FINALE!

    We filled up seats at Asheville Pizza and Brewing co. on Merrimon Ave. with cast, crew and some amazing fans to watch the entire first season of When Fact Met Fiction. As you can see, we had a fantastic time.

  2. We had a table read with the cast.

    Not only did this give a feel for where we are going in season 2, but it was just so much fun having these great people in one room again. Can’t wait to start shooting later this year.

  3. We have been tweaking some episodes for season 2 of When Fact Met Fiction as well as writing new episodes.

    This is always a process. I can confidently say that everything we thought would happen for these characters could change. It is never set in stone and is always possible to change until it is a wrap.

  4. We’ve been working on the main page for our crowdfunding campaign.

    This is a huge job and there are only three of us managing it so needless to say, we are covered over, but we’ll do our best along with everything else.

  5. We got some of our cast and team together to shoot the video for our crowdfunding campaign.

    We are blessed with a cast of people who go out of their way to help us out. We worked four hours getting our crowdfunding video shot and we can’t say a big enough THANK YOU to those who were able to participate. They are the best! We’ll share the final video with you soon.

… And we aren’t going to have much breathing room for the next few months. Here’s why:

  1. We are swimming in pre-production stuff –  Finding locations, running auditions for new characters, hiring crew, designing sets, creating our new branding. This list feels endless.

  2. We are managing fundraising –  Not only are we building a crowdfunding campaign, but we are knocking on the doors of businesses and people who love supporting the arts. Especially, those who want to support talent local to Western North Carolina.

  3. We are in development for other projects coming down the line – In order to not lag behind we have to double our efforts where future content is concerned. That means working toward the next big thing, while we are working on the current project.

  4. Sometimes we need to eat, sleep and breath – We try to fit this in on a fairly regular basis. Unfortunately, we don’t always succeed. Good thing we love coffee… and we love what we do.

We can’t wait to bring the next season of When Fact Met Fiction your way. Thank you for being –  THE BEST FANS EVER.

In case you missed it, here is a fun Video Interview with Karen Covington – Yow on playing the part of a ‘cougar’ on When Fact Met Fiction.

When Fact Met Fiction Has a Photo Shoot

 

Awhile back we sent out to subscribers of our newsletter a few pictures from the photo shoot we had done with Jeff Alexander and Rebekah Babelay. We had intended to post a more thorough article about the shoot itself a couple of weeks ago. But things got busy for Stefan (who is still out in California working on “Gold Dust“) and me, who has been attending to the list Stefan left me to cover while he is gone. Anyway, better late than never.

To start, I have to brag about Jeff and Rebekah. First, they worked this shoot into their schedules at the last minute without complaint and they were completely professional (most of the time – smiles).jo-silliness

Rebekah was lovely as always. It’s impossible to make her look bad and believe me we tried for episode 8. You’ll just have to wait to see what I’m talking about. With the modeling experience she had under her belt we were able to get a ton of great pictures in a short amount of time.

Not to belittle Rebekah’s greatness, but Jeff was a beast that day. He had just had major surgery a week and a half earlier, and, in spite of feeling like crap, was able to get his handsome on and muster some sizzling sex appeal (it doesn’t hurt that Jeff and Rebekah have cultivated some awesome chemistry). But they gave us some practical, crazy, and funny pictures as well, and we are so grateful.

Thanks to Jeff and Rebekah for going above and beyond and to Bclip Productions making some of their studio space available to us. As such, we were able to get everything we need to keep things moving forward for When Fact Met Fiction. If you’ve seen the header for this website of our Facebook page you’ve seen a glimpse of what we got accomplished.

 

Well, without further adieu. Check out the mini-gallery of our photo shoot:
