The 'Pilot Episode' has now been completed and I'm waiting for a suitable time to release it. I plan to do a press release and any other forms advertising before it is released. At the moment it's up on vimeo - so take a look http://www.theycallmeivan.com
Examples of episodes have been written by Othniel. However it is my feeling that in order to get the best possible mix of ideas for the series, other screenwriters might like the opportunity to send in their own scripts for the other possible episodes - please do get in touch.

It's hoped that this series of 6 episodes will attract attention from mainstream entertainment. This is at the moment the most affordable platform.
Making the 'Pilot Episode' proved to be relatively difficult ie. finding cast and crew, then having people dropping out left, right and centre. Most of the cast were very young. We didn't have enough crew, thus people had to do more than one job. At the end of the day we had to compromise with the cast and we were lucky to get the crew that we got. Without Matt Roughtledge of MJR Pictures and his equipment it would have been very difficult.
Having said that the cast and crew performed admirably. The result was not perfect, but good. Hopefully the next episode will be even better!
