"Family," a webcast sitcom

A few weeks ago I mentioned that Petal Films in Seattle put out a casting call for actors (unpaid) to appear in a YouTube poly sitcom. Now the first two episodes of "Family" are up for your viewing pleasure, at Petal Films' subsidiary Three Dog Pictures. Each episode is about 6 minutes long. A new one is promised every two weeks, for a full year.

From the site:

The comic web series "Family," created by Terisa Greenan, is an episodic tale of alternative love. Set in Seattle, Washington, it follows the lives of Gemma, Ben & Stuart, living together in a long-term triad relationship. Meet the "family" on our YouTube channel. Episodes 1-2 are available, and Episode 3 airs December 13th.

Oh, this is going places. Greenan says the show is loosely based on life in her own MFM triad. Episode 2 certainly had me chuckling. I'm gonna bring that one to the monthly meeting of my beloved poly discussion group this Sunday, where we can watch it sitting around in a circle. Luckily we know each other well enough that I think no one will take offense... I think.

Also, from the site:

"Family" creator Terisa Greenan will be interviewed by several websites in December.

December 13: Popular YouTube relationship experts Dan and Jenn will air a videotaped interview with Terisa, her partners Larry Golding and Scott Campbell, and actors Amber Rack and Ernie Joseph.

December 14: Polytics.org will podcast an interview with Terisa, Scott, and Ernie.

Later in December (TBA): YouTube personality Miss Polyamory will interview Terisa, and Cunning Minx will interview her for the Polyamory Weekly podcast.

Update: Miss Polyamory's (Beki Rosenthal's) interview with Greenan is now up; listen here.

The Kanawi Community's podcast interview with Terisa Greenan is also up; it's on the community's Polytics site. Scroll down to the entry for Dec. 13, 2008.

The first two shows are better than amateur video production but short of prime-time broadcast TV. (Hey, I don't ask for much, huh?) Some of the actors are first-rate, some you can tell are delivering lines. And let's build some plot and drama. Pick up the pace. You want viewers to come back, you leave 'em with cliffhangers.

Yes, it is good. If they work a lot more on the plot and drama part and it takes off, I could see a cable network buying it and throwing some real resources at it.
