On the day of the TACOathon, we make note of the IndieGoGo Campaign totals for each project.

The max number of tacos for each project will be 20. Yes, 20 TACOS!!

Rob Gokee and Allison Vanore have set out to raise money for original series, Replaced, by Heath Vinyard, and for short film, A Boy's Life, by Eli Benavidez.  Why?  Well, why not?!  Allison is producing both projects and Rob is composing music for Replaced so it seems only fitting that we'd find some way to bring tacos into the mix to raise money for this great cause.  Here's the run-down:

We are still in the middle of NYTVF and we're having a blast. Here representing SOLO The Series is Creator, Jonathan Nail, Producer, Allison Vanore, Music Composer, Rob Gokee and Allison's sister (newly out of film school), Krista Vanore.

We are still in the middle of NYTVF and we're having a blast.  Here representing SOLO The Series is Creator, Jonathan Nail, Producer, Allison Vanore, Music Composer, Rob Gokee and Allison's sister (newly out of film school), Krista Vanore.

Tuesday and Wednesday night SOLO screened to a packed audience along side Gentrification, a pilot about two young Caucasian families in LA who recently moved to Highland Park.  The comedy is found in the juxtaposition of the white families (with their Prius driving, private school submitting selves) and their Hispanic neighbors.   The other pilot we shared a slot with was Greg and Donny.  This comedy takes place in Pennsylvania where the characters are more like caricatures of the people the creators grew up around.  Lots of laughs all around for the three comedies in our block!

Today is Digital Day so we head into NYC to attend a day of panel discussions and screenings later tonight.  Tonight Gold: Night of the Zombie King screens so we'll be there supporting our friends, Stephanie Thorpe, Taryn O'Neill, David Nett and Frederick Snyder!

Tomorrow night is the award show where NYTVF will be announcing pilot winners and the famous People's Choice Award!  Wish us luck!

SOLO The Series, has been accepted into the New York Television Festival from Sept 20 - 25th and the schedule was just released today! Producer, Allison Vanore, Creator/Producer/Lead, Jonathan Nail. and Music Composer, Rob Gokee, will be attending the festival.

This Thursday marks the beginning of the Independent Television Festival in Los Angeles, CA. We are lucky enough to be attending and screening SOLO The Series at the festival on Wednesday, August 4th at 5:45pm.

This Thursday (tomorrow) marks the beginning of the Independent Television Festival in Los Angeles, CA.  We are lucky enough to be attending and screening SOLO The Series at the festival on Wednesday, August 4th at 5:45pm.

The festival starts with a Show Creator Luncheon where we will receive our credentials and information about what to expect at the festival.  After getting my passes I'll head home to get ready for the ITVFest Gala that night!

Those in attendance from our show will me (producer & director Allison Vanore), creator & star Jonathan Nail, composer Rob Gokee, cast Michele Boyd, Jason Burns, Amol Shah and casting director Laurie Records.  There will be a red carpet event prior to the Gala: photos and interviews for the cast.  At the Gala I'll be mingling and networking with the other show creators, actors and producers.  We'll be promoting SOLO to the party goers in the hopes that we will fill the theatre for our screening on Wednesday.

Outside of our screening I'm also looking forward to many of the panels/seminars they are hosting.  Saturday there are two panels that I'm looking forward to hearing: Development: Selling Your Show and Building A Career as a TV Writer.  Sunday I'll also attend Representation: Getting That is Half The Battle and The Studio System. Then on Tuesday I look forward to attending Getting Sponsors for your Show.  It will be awesome to hear what the festival has to offer the show creators while we screen our shows and meet each other.

Shows I'm looking forward to seeing at ITVFest: Anyone But Me, Hamilton Carver, Fall of Kaden, Squatters, Cell The Web Series and Going to Pot.  See the trailers here: Page 1 & Page 2.

If you plan on being at ITVFest please let me know so we can meet up!  I'm hoping to hit up a few of the coffee mixers and a few of the night events.

Again, SOLO The Series screens Wednesday, August 4th at 5:45pm at Laemmle Sunset 5 for ITVFest.  Buy tickets here.

Festival Schedules are up for ITVFest in Los Angeles, CA from July 30th - August 5th and Flagstaff Film Festival in Flagstaff, AZ from August 9th - 16th! See below for screening info. We hope to see you there! If you are attending, please let the filmmakers know.
