TSIY 2.0 Re-Entry: LG15: The Order Files (Series Preview + Pilot Episode) - Stretchandmayonaise



So, pilot submissions closed last night (Oct 15), but I noticed that this video submission from the first TSIY updated their video description to note "EDIT- RE-ENTERED FOR TSIY SEASON 2" This was a strong entry last time.

---

What makes the life of one girl any more important than the life of another? The line between good and evil isn't always as clear as you may think. What is to happen to the good people that make bad choices?

Show Outline:

The life of Jordyn Johnson was, to say the least, the most typical of any teenage girl. Until, that is, she was brought an ultimatum. She would gain the trust of a group of "special girls", and hand then over to an organization called "The Order", or her, her friends, and her family would feel the consequences. Fans will soon find out, that they can't play both sides. Either they support Jordyn on her quest to find these girls, or support the people who will try and stop her from doing it, at any costs. You've seen Shadows, Elders, Watchers, and Claire, but you've seen nothing like this. On LG15: The Order Files, expect everything you know about good and bad to change. What would a seemly good-doing organization, like The Resistance, do if one girl threatened the life of another "special" girl? And how will Tachyon react to the that...? This season, YOU will control the show. The show is YOURS. Engage in a variety of interactive aspects to the show, such as a weekly "live chat", decode clues and mysteries for the characters, communicate with characters that will CHANGE the course of the show completely, and come meet with these characters LIVE in a New York City Live Event! This season, expect interactivity, familiar faces, and much more.

SPECIAL THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED OUT!!!

Written, directed, produced, filmed, and edited - Chris "Stretchandmayonaise"

Thanks for the support guys! I wasn't too sure if I should resubmit it, but I didn't want to look back at this amazing opportunity and kick myself for not doing something. But, I just wanted to answer a couple of concerns people have recently been having about my entry:

1- "Why be lazy and not redo it?!"

Honestly, looking back on it, there are a TON of things that I would change about this entry if I could. The thing is, being a high school senior (and yes, I have the age requirement thing under control) this time of year, I have been so wound up with applying to my colleges, that a half-production just couldn't fit my schedule. And honestly, I didn't decide to re-enter this submission until fairly last minute.

2- "Why make a Bree knock-off?"

I have a very specific character personality for Jordyn, and I'll leave it at that. She may come off as Bree at first, but don't expect that for too long.

3- "Oh great, you shot this entire thing already! Does that mean no mention of "The Last"?

The show, in no way shape or form, has been produced. This pilot contains random clips to give it that effect. And actually, having the chance to speak with Andrew (the creator of The Last) with somewhat frequency recently, I have some cool things planned.

4- "Ooooo. I really like that girl, she's cute. Can I have her number?"

Hahaa, no. But Jana appreciates your nice complements :-)

Feel free to contact me with any more questions. I really appreciate the nice comments towards this, I put a lot of work into it :-)

I may not have made it clear, and I apologize, but my college applications are out already, so my time in now fully freed up (Senior-itus has already ensued)..

As far as resources go, using my own money I purchased the Canon HV40 HD camera (which is far better than the camera I used to make this) a few weeks ago, and I have all the actors that I had in mind last year still more than willing to help (they were actually the ones that asked me to reenter). But, by "resources", I may be wrong, I feel that you may mean the other YouTubers that I featured. In short, the answer to your question is "yes". Actually, I have a few more familiar faces that are willing to help...

Hope this helped to clarify :-)

  4. this is a very strong pilot and trailer -- the main actress is engaging and cute, and having whatthebuck and other youtubers would definitely bring in some much needed new viewers.

    i can't even remember where this one ranked last time, but if The Misfits hadn't monopolized the discussion, I wouldn't have been surprised if this one won.

    Now I'm wondering if i should be surprised if this one doesn't win.

  5. Gah. I seriously loved this one the last time, and I still do.

  6. The main actress has that adorablity thing that is hard to just "create" Either you have it or you don't.

    Also the focus on the Order side of things might be even more relevant this time around now that OpAphid and Tachyon are fair game.

  10. Do you still have access to the resources you did last year?

    You already mentioned you were busy applying to colleges and such, how is that going to change in January?

    I don't know, it seems like a lot could change in a year.
