The Pack

Posted by TERESA

You might have heard about The Pack in passing through various mentions on this blog or on my Twitter or Facebook, but consider this the official introduction…  🙂  The Pack is a web series I’m writing, playing a supporting role in, and producing along with Commune Cohorts MAYO and ALEX, who have recently formed Pareidolia Films.

Anne (Marsha Martinez) is a 30-year-old New Yorker who has finally found her Mr. Right (Christopher Yustin). Everything seems perfect…

…until Mr. Right accidentally bites her during sex and turns her into a werewolf.

The Pack is set in a world where humans and Unhumans (werewolves, vampires, zombies and more) have always lived side by side. That doesn’t mean they don’t cause trouble for humans…or each other.

As Anne navigates her complicated love life, she will also need to make a choice. Will she be ashamed of what she has become? Or will she find werewolf pride and join The Pack?

Also starring: Kelly Mayo, Patrick Shearer, and ME.

We filmed three episodes of it over the summer, but have since decided that it could be much better with a few improvements.  Namely, I’ll be writing the entire season of about 10-12 episodes all in one shot before shooting, and Pareidolia Films will be buying a new camera that will allow Alex to make the series look exactly how he wants it to look (ie: way better).  I’m going to be spending the next month scribbling away, and we’re going to spend the winter fundraising for a camera and the production, figuring out a production schedule, and getting everything together for what will hopefully be a spring shoot.  I’m very excited!

I’m hoping to get you excited, too!  Because we’re going to need your help in order to make this happen.  Yes, we’ll probably be asking you for money eventually.  But we’ll also be asking you to keep up with what we’re doing and helping us spread the word.  A web series is only as successful as how many people click on the website and watch the episodes.  I’m hoping that that number will be…um…a LOT.  We’ve got what I think is an interesting story, a wonderful cast, and an amazing, knowledgeable, and hardworking crew (led by DP, Matthew Golub).  Everyone’s already done amazing work on the episodes we’ve already shot.  Once we have the equipment we want, and have the funds we need, we’ll be able to do even better work, and deliver a show that’s a hell of a lot of fun!

  2. I love this post. 🙂 But I’m biased.

  3. Wow, there’s something about web series that always puts a smile on my face. I think it’s the work that’s put into them. I hope I get to see the finished product!

  4. Oh, you’ll definitely see it, don’t you worry. I’m working on the scripts now, will have them finished by the new year, and after some heavy-duty fundraising, we’ll hopefully begin shooting in the spring!
