After talking to Jsung1223 today. (what a passionate teammate. XD Your fire is so strong, Please don't burn me~ lol)
I have come to this conclusion:
Edepth's pilot episode is going to stay 20 mins, and I decided I will pitch it as it is. One single episode.
The goal is to get feedback and see if people want more of it, and let the executives, marketing people, if any, to have their say.
:P Forget planning for feature, if i plan for feature it will have too many elements that need to change. That's for the future.
For now, 20mins is plenty. We will do that, if this sells nicely, we will do the next 20.
If it doesn't sell, I will do a different project.
I think it will sell in film fests and cons even if it isn't a bomb.
We should make back investment if selling it correctly.
As Joseph mentioned, it's about time to start marketing research as well. In a typical production marketing starts the moment the production starts.... (hm, though technically we are still in pre-production period...) XD
I will request a few pals to help me out on that too.
We need to think about international market, between USA and Taiwan, as well as thinking about which film fest will help us most, instead of just any film fests.
Let's just take it one step at a time. :P
