The Queen Hussy Chronicles w/ Pete Chatmon: Issue VI

It's been a couple of weeks since the last chronicle. Things have been nicely hectic around Double7 as we were finishing a campaign featuring the Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet (awesome car!) and editing Queen Hussy Episode 2, "But, We're Neighbors".

It's been a couple of weeks since the last chronicle. Things have been nicely hectic around Double7 as we were finishing a campaign featuring the Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet (awesome car!) and editing Queen Hussy Episode 2, "But, We're Neighbors".

We also snuck in a few more "Meet The Character" videos along the way. Episode 1 has been hovering around 4,000 views and creator Hannelore Williams has decided it's time to expand the show to new people while also rewarding the folks that have supported thus far.

It should be noted that this here webseries game is a wild, wild west, and keeping your guns blazing with content is the modus operandi.

THE CAMPAIGN

The snapshot above is from the portfolio page on our website and reflects most of the content we've released in support of Queen Hussy. A lot of people have put great time and energy into it, and we've stuck to our belief of not only creating, but educating folks about the process. We may stumble along the way, but that doesn't mean everyone else should.

I invite you to check out the page HERE and see everything we've released!

MEET RICK

You first met Rick in Episode 1 at the party, and he'll appear again in Episode 2 to set the stage for Episode 3. The beauty of the webseries is having the time to develop storylines while also responding to what the audience finds most engaging or entertaining. In the event you missed Rick's "Meet the Character" video, you can check it out now:

BONUS

Since we just wrapped this up and this particular video has to do with independent film(!), check out the $FREE.99 episode of the 911x7 Porsche Campaign I directed. $FREE.99 won the Creative Promise Award at the 2008 Tribeca All Access Program at the Tribeca Film Festival and we're about to make this heist film happen next year, by hook or by crook! I'll definitely be keeping Shadow and Act in the mix.

In this snippet you'll get a window into the creative brainstorms I share with my co-writer, Candice Sanchez McFarlane.

911x7 Episode 2: $FREE.99 from Double7 Images on Vimeo.

Stay tuned for Episode 2 and as always, drop any comments, questions, etc in here and I'll respond.

Onward,

Pete Chatmon
