“Run This Town” Web Series Has High Hopes for Live Action
What’s a good place to start when you’ve got a good story but you don’t have the “street cred” to make a feature? Web Series.
At least that’s what we think. Meeting the soft-spoken Charles Clemmons, executive producer and director of “Run This Town” web series, was a bonus for us. Oh, and he has street cred… Charles takes this business – the business of filmmaking seriously. He’s not just making some video, he’s pulling together new and seasoned talent to support his vision. He’s got a business plan and is mindful of the promises he has made to his investors. He has high hopes for this series and so do we.
Take a second and watch this trailer – which had us hooked from the beginning!
As with any creative process, you have to step away and let it fly – which is what happened on Sunday when Charles invited everyone to the Screening Room on Wilshire in Los Angeles.
Little did Charles know that he would have his World Premiere screen to two audiences – back-to-back, the crowd coming in was a bit overwhelming to this humble filmmaker. We were there in support of the cast and crew – which are such awesome people, humble but they are a cohesive group – you know they work well together on set. Can I say the ladies had some fierce footwear on and we were drooling!!
What’s “Run This Town” got that we found interesting? Strong female lead characters. Not that the men are any less fabulous – but we loved Jade and her persona on screen sold her character as the leader. You believed she was the no-nonsense, take no prisoners character she was created to be.
Now we’re not just writing these kind words because it’s up on our Network at Mingle Media TV. There are notes you could write about anything you watch, like art it’s subjective. But this idea, this cinematography and this director deserve a chance to build and grow on what he has started here. He has a heart of a lion and the mannerism of a lamb.
We hope that you will support this INDIE (independent production) and watch not only the first episode… but the ones coming up. It’s hard to let your project fly – but when it takes wings and flies from other peoples support that is when you can sleep again.
Check out the series – be their FAN on Facebook and tell your friends to watch every Monday night and discover other awesome creations like this on the Interwebs!
