LETTERS TO QUENTIN - A New LGBT Web Series Coming Soon

When I started watching The Lizzie Bennet Diaries over a year ago, I had no idea it would wind up inspiring me to write my own web series. I certainly did not anticipate actually having the opportunity to cast talented actors like Elana Mugdan, and to come so far in the process that it would come so very close to becoming a reality, but here we are!

Before The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, I hadn’t conceived of shooting a web series vlog-style. Of course, in hindsight the idea is obvious — what a great, innovative way to tell 21st Century stories, and how completely brilliant is it to have the characters on social media sites like Twitter and Tumblr, actually able to interact with the fans? This was just the perfect way for me to be able to execute a story I had come up with almost ten years ago. Low budget, no complicated cinematography; something grounded in realism, something where the characters felt alive.

The transmedia especially was a great inspiration. When Pemberley Digital launched Welcome to Sanditon over the summer, I saw this as a perfect opportunity to figure out exactly how the characters’ twitters would work. Jason Bradshaw was my test subject, and the results were an absolute success. It worked so well that a lot of things got added to his backstory that would not otherwise have been there. The story is so much richer for it.

I’m incredibly excited about being able to do this show, and so is everyone involved in the project (and I do not say this lightly! Trust me, I am one of the most self-deprecating people you’ve ever met). This would never have been possible without this amazing web series, and for that, I’d like to give my sincere thanks to everyone on the Pemberley Digital team.

We’re doing a fundraising campaign right now, so click the above link for more information about our show if you’re interested, and thanks for reading!
