Δεν το έχω πολυσυνειδητοποιήσει ακόμα, αλλά: Απόψε. Νέος Whedon.
Kαι ο πιο ταιριαστός τρόπος για να συμπληρώσω την υπενθύμιση, είναι το mini-Q&A που έκανε για το Whedonesque. Με τα δικά του λόγια, "For You Guys. Since I'm talking to everyone, that should include you." Here it is:
What role will Felicia Day play on 'Dollhouse'?
A tough yet tender freedom-fighter in a post-apocalyptic future, DUH.
What aspect of 'Dollhouse' are you most proud of?
I'm gonna go with the casting. I'm enormously proud of the ensemble we put together. They're all very different and gave us more than we'd hoped for, while filming everything out of order and never once carping. There's gonna be some love. There's gonna be some shipping. I might have accidentally shipped.
Out of all of the characters you have worked with over the years who's story arc has pleased you the most?
For a long term arc, you can't beat Wesley Wyndham-Price. Talk about empowering a geek! I also have special love for Anne, formerly (among other things), Chantarelle(*). I didn't realize till after the fact how much her story owed to 'A Little Princess'.
If residuals from the interwebs are not that good, is it worth thinking about a donate-scheme to supplement them? I prefer watching online, I'd be happy to donate a few dollars for each show I enjoy watching if there was an easy way to do that. It hurts me that my preferred watching method is less equitable.
I think donation or subscription -- or just budgeting through pre-sale -- models are kind of interesting. The guild was fan-financed its first season -- one of the internet structures I'm investigating could be similar. The more direct connection between the fan and the artist, the better. It would be fun to announce a project with and actor and THEN find out what the budget was based on the fans.
Which episode of 'Dollhouse' would you say stands out to you the most (your favorite episode)?
Well, 'Man on the Street', our episode six, was the ep that really seemed to bring everything together. I've never written faster or more easily. Having said that, my favorite eposides of my own shows are usually Tim Minear's, and he's still in editing, so...
Also, the last one is bonkers.
Do you feel you've been pigeonholed as a geek writer? Whether it's sci-fi or superheroes, these genres tend not to garner the respect (read:awards) that other let's say more realistic genres do. Does that bother you? Would you ever consider writing something more in the vein of 'The Wire'?
I've planted myself firmly where I am. I like them genres. I like 'em all. A tough cop drama belongs to somebody like David Simon who actually knows about tough cops. (His book 'Homicide', on which they based the series, is one of my favorites ever.) I like things a little bigger than life. Or smaller, but only if they were really small, and had to fight the cat.
