2016 I pitched another show to CBC and they liked it and gave me a little money to try making a pilot. They ask is it a podcast or a radio show, I don’t know I just have ideas, you guys can figure out where to put it if you like it. Working alone in and around everything else I do it took 3 months to make it and a few weeks after I submitted the finished sketch they told me it was reviewed (committee of about 60 people) and it wasn’t liked so much but they liked my voice and think I should try again, pitch something else please.
Said if you like one song by Prince you realize he had 9 others on the record? Why not invite me in to be part of a team, part of the program. I made this in a vacuum but if you think there’s something you like about my voice allow for the opportunity to work with all of you and get paid in a regular way so I can justify reorganizing my life. But they don’t work like that. Probably reflects damage done by Harper or maybe there’s a different explanation but I prefer blaming Harper for everything. It’s not like he didn’t do things that encourage one to think this way.
The idea of the podcast (or radio show) was to look at people who left an established career but the emphasis I wanted to place was with the frustrated feelings and opinions of friends and family some of whom still don’t understand years later why the subject changed their path. Strange this idea would resonate with me huh?
To make it more unique I wrote songs about the storyline and used my students to perform and record them bending toward their aesthetic instead of mine which made a whole other unique layer to the storytelling.
Proposed title What’s Wrong With This Picture?
Back to the dust in.
