Web Series Creators Should Listen To New Mediacracy

I listen to many startup, marketing, filmmaking, and video production podcast shows on my iPod Touch. One of my very favorite video production shows with many elite web series creators and producers, is New Mediacracy with hosts Chris McCaleb and Bernie Su.

New Mediacracy is a casual conversation in the form of an audio podcast about the world of web video featuring industry producers, directors, writers, and other content creators.

I would advise anyone in the web series industry to regularly tune in and subscribe to this show on iTunes because it’s highly entertaining, informative, and inspirational!

OJBG's Secret Project: "DC Web Series Festival" - Ep. 2.06

April saw OJBG creator Otessa Ghadar and 20/20 Productions launch DC’s first web series festival, then later brought the best of the festival to a screening at DC Filmfest. We took the time to speak to some of the people behind great local web series like Milgram and the Fastwalkers, Malice, Thurston and Shotgun Mythos, asking them what their experiences in the web series world has been like.
The creators of teen web series Orange Juice in Bishop's Garden have created the Secret Project. Get the low-down on upcoming events, cool people & secret places in Washington, DC.

OJ in Bishop's Garden: A Labor of Love Story & Your Guide to Freebies

Where’s Season 1? And Your Guide to Freebies

We’ve already mentioned that a lot of people have been asking us about where the title of "Orange Juice in Bishop's Garden (OJBG)" comes from, so we wrote a blog post explaining why Orange Juice, why Bishop’s Garden. We received a few comments from fans expressing their dismay that Season 1 is in the vault and available for purchase as a download. We were sad to see this! OJBG is truly a labor of love and we have definitely tried our best to provide viewers with the best and most accessible content. So here’s our explanation as to where and how you can watch Season 1 and your guide on how to get OJBG goodies free of charge.

The “Why”

Otessa decided to put Season 1 “in the vault” because honestly it works better as a prequel, something to come back to at the very end of the show, after you’ve gone through the whole Sarah & Gwen experience. Otessa also feels that it’s not the best introduction or representation of what OJBG is as a series overall . She specifically wrote and directed Season 2 as a new beginning for the show. She wrapped up story lines, got rid of a few characters and developed others, and established new footing to fully develop the Sarah and Gwen story arc. These were conscious artistic choices she made to make OJBG a better web series to watch.

Also, when OJBG went viral within the LGBT community, OJBG received a bunch of noise from viewers who watched Season 1 expecting to see a lesbian story line! By that time, word was getting out about our show as a lesbian favorite, but in Season 1, Sarah’s still straight because, it’s the ’90s and that’s what was expected of her. But her character is still questioning, going through a process, and when she meets Gwen in Season 2, she’s ready for her.

Lastly, we’re an indie production- we need all the help we can get! We provide almost all our content for free online for anyone to enjoy. But everyone involved in making OJBG happen poured their passion and their love into the project. It is truly a labor of love. We always believe in supporting our fellow web series and indie artists so that they can do what they love and be able to support themselves with their passion. We would love to do the same! So a few dollars for a download, or shopping from our Etsy wardrobe, or buying a book in support goes a long way and we do appreciate it!:)

Your Guide to OJBG Freebies

We did put Season 1 in the vault, but we did give you some loopholes around it and many opportunities to get OJBG goodies for free! If you want to view Season 1 and can’t spare a few bucks to support, LIKE us on Facebook or Tweet us your OJBG love and we’ll send you a FREE DOWNLOAD of ANY episode of  your choosing — including Season 1 episodes in the vault. And as we gear up for the release of Season 7(!!) we’ll be hosting special Twitter and Facebook giveaways so be sure to follow our posts!

We also host Goodreads giveaways where you can win Otessa’s script books for free. You can also reach out to us and request a FREE ebook and we’re always happy to send it your way.
The Season 1 feature film was also just posted on our site so that you can watch the ENTIRE season with back to back episodes for FREE now :) But this feature is only up for a week, so get your watching in while you can!

And Bishop’s Garden is the place where it all happens. It’s the summer of ’94 and naive and rebellious teens are engaging in all kinds of underage tomfoolery.

Telly, LA Web Festival, and Webby honoree award winning teen web series following the lives of 18 kids as they grow up and get down in grunge-era Washington DC.
"The bad things we do. The things we get caught for--and how they are never the same.

Go Orange with Otessa Ghadar and OJBG!

Film maker and creator of the internationally acclaimed LGBT youth web series “Orange Juice in Bishops Garden,” and founder of new media production company 20/20 ProductionsOtessa Ghadar, is taking her new campaign and plea to “Go Orange” to heads of state, legislators and Embassies throughout Washington, DC.

“Go Orange” is a special interactive new media project that provides a safe space, aims to unite LGBT youth around the world, and acts as a catalyst and call for tolerance in countries where sexual orientation is considered taboo.  The LGBT youth community around the world is still very much under-served. Otessa is launching this campaign to raise awareness with top influencers in the most powerful city in the world – Washington, DC.

Capital Pride 2013 is the perfect platform!

As part of “Go Orange” Otessa will be gathering personal messages from top influencers who are willing to go in front of the camera to promote tolerance for LGBTQ youth around the world.
Free tee shirts with the plea to “Go Orange” will be given away during the parade.

T-shirts will also be available for sale online and a portion of each sale will be donated to an organization supporting LGBTQ youth in particular. An app has also already been developed for people to send pictures of themselves showing support and “Going Orange” for the global LGBT youth community and putting their cities on the map.

Some people have already starting showing their support! If you’re a supporter, submit your pic!

Here's a video of Otessa talking about the power of the web in allowing her to create a community for LGBT youth around the world: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=S1lNNSdeVDU

Sing & Laugh Along

Here is my parody of kelly Clarkson's My Life Would Suck Without You called Undead Together Again! Performed by The Zombie Socks Singers, made up of the casts from Epidoes 1-3 including Ryan Singer, and is a revamp of the first version we did a little while back! It will get stuck in your head and when you hear the original on the raido believe me when I say you will never sing it the same way LOL!
Many of the cast pull double duty as actors and crew. Here are a few words from our Heather Lyda who plays Sarah in Episode 1 and a party mom in Episode 4! She also helped with set design on Disgusting Careers!
Working with Elizabeth Stacy on her Web Series ShortMockumentaries, or “Socks” has been an exercise in purefun. If the mocking weren’t fun enough, the addition of zombies has made it disgustingly funny. I knew the minute I read the script for the first episode—and laughed out loud— that I’d like to get on board with Elizabeth. My character, Sarah, is a warden of sorts, for the zombie rental agency “Undead Rental.” Her personality is a mix between Michelle Rodriguez (Avatar) and Jane Lynch (gLee)—a military bad ass who isn’t afraid to act and look a little bit stupid. I felt drawn to this character and honestly didn’t do much preparation around the audition because she was pretty close to me. (However, I’m pretty sure Elizabeth’s love for my red hair got me the role of Sarah.)

One thing that really impressed me about Elizabeth was how efficient she is at scheduling. When independentfilmmakers work on no/lo budgets, it’s important to respect everyone’s time. Elizabeth was able to recruit some really talented makeup and hair artists and other talented crew involved as well. Even the music video is mixed professionally. But what truly made me believe in her as a professional filmmaker is the speed with which she contacted SAG/AFTRA and got the process rolling. Thanks to her efforts, and the assistance of Lawrence Van, theZombie Socks series is a SAG New Media project, which makes it an even more desirable project for local crew and talent. If you’re new in town, or you just want to be involved with a fun group of folks, Zombie Socks is a great new project!
