Silly Suzy, Violent Violet
on Feb 22, 2013
I feel like there are two types of shows in 101:
-comedies, a lot of jokes, production value not as important. Although sometimes these can have really high production value, like Car-Jumper.
-Visually interesting, compelling shows. Like the Kyle/ Kate shows and Everything. With these shows production value is really important because they seem more exploratory and about artistic expression. They need to take you into their world. They seem like somewhere else, they don't seem like a regular apartments.
This show is more like the latter, so the production value has to be higher. Better sound, paint the walls of your apartment.
I'm a big fan of yours, Jess, from your 102 days. I think the stuff you've been submitting is interesting and I look forward to whatever you do.

You're a creep, Jess. So is Lizzy.
I liked this show! And I would've loved for it to have been screened, mostly so that I could hear a lot of uncomfortable laughter.
That being said, I think the technical stuff (audio, mostly) probably cost it the most points. What Dave said.

Hah! This was so weird. Watching it again I think it's really cool but I remember at the panel meeting I couldn't really see it screening. And then when rounds of voting happened it didn't advance past the third round and I wasn't surprised.
A cool show all the same. A lot to like. I really dug the characterization of "Silly Suzy."
I think part of it may be it's ambitions vs. the execution. It felt like a really intelligent experiment. This power dynamic between these two women, these ghosts (I think) haunting her, this puppet show sequence. It felt like a really cool very different kind of show. But then it was still shot and performed like a standard slapdash Channel 101 show, so you're left wondering if it was a joke and what the joke was.
Does that make sense? If it was shot nicer and the audio was recorded better it might have been seen for what it was trying to do, or what I think you were trying to do. But I think somewhere in the disconnect it didn't make the connection to the panel that you probably wanted?
