What a GREAT title! Congratulations! How do we see the teaser? I'm in the process of making a couple of trailers myself, so I'd really be interested in taking a look!
Oh, I found it under your reel, Very very funny!!!
Funny! Loved it...

Thank you all for your lovely comments! It's much appreciated. I'll post something later today about the process!
Congrats on doing it big!!
Hi all, You can see the teaser under my reel. Can anyone advise me how to post it in the lounge? Not quite sure why some people can't see it. To those who would like to know a bit more about the process: I basically put together a pitch packet for the series consisting of a Log Line, Character Breakdown, Ideas for five future episodes and how the series would develop over five seasons plus I wrote the script for the pilot - did all this on spec which is tough but probably a must. However, the main thing that sold NBW was this teaser. I wrote this as a standalone scene - I was then very lucky in that I met Ashley Jensen at a party - I've always loved her work so I made sure we exchanged numbers and then when I had the scene I texted her (I know) and she asked me to send her the scene. I did, and 5 minutes later she texted back that she was in. Avoiding the whole agent dance was major!! I then pulled together other actors from a acting for directors class that I had been attending, borrowed a Cannon 5D from a friend, borrowed another friend's house for the day and shot the scene. Actually we shot 2 different scenes but this was the one I preferred. Having something visual really helps me pitch - I always found pitching torturous but now I always take clips or photos in and it seems to turn the pitch into a conversation and when it's a conversation I can relax and enjoy it. The visuals also grab the Execs attention. If you would like more news on how things progress, I'm on twitter @clarekilner1 (I'm new to it so bare with me). Thanks for all your lovely comments. Clare
Iove it :) Hilarious!
Clare, I'm not sure what to say other than, FUNNY! :)
Very funny Clare!
Thanks Tisa and Denise. Glad it made you laugh!!
You've gotta love Ashley Jensen, she's a little Scottish treasure. Good luck with your project Clare - a cringingly funny sketch.
Wonderfully awful audition!! You could feel her pain. I totally identified. Congrats!
Yes I do love Ashley Jensen. No one does uncomfortable better than her!
Clare, great teaser.
Hi Martyn, Yes I'm not sure at this stage. Since its NBCUniversal there will be a co-production but I'm not yet sure with whom that will be. It's all changing so rapidly. Some days I think I can't keep up and others I think it's such a great time because it's all up for grabs. Is Netflix in the UK now? I was wondering if they've partnered with LOVEFILM or if they are competing with them.
Thanks so much Derek. Glad you enjoyed it!
That poor girl. That'd be a good time to call it a day.
Ha, ha, cheers Wayne!
