Question

Answer

Hi! I was just wondering how the whole process of creating a web series works, or how you guys did it. Like, how/where did you get the equipment? And are the members of the cast all of your friends, or did you hold auditions? How often did you shoot the scenes? And how long did the process take? Sorry if it's a lot of questions, I guess I just really want to know :) Anyways, the series is wonderful!

Hello! So glad to hear you like the series :) Ed and Imogen began writing the script in March of 2013 and brought the full script to TUTV--Tufts University Television--that fall who decided to partner with Ed and Imogen to create Jules and Monty. TUTV provided the crew and the equipment, Ed and Imogen provided the script and the actors (mostly their friends… they spend a lot of time in the theatre), and what you see on YouTube is the result of that partnership. We generally filmed on fridays or weekends (we had to work around class schedules) for hours at a time; it turns out that eighteen episodes require A LOT of work. Filming began in late October and went all the way till mid February and generally speaking we were filming every single weekend (well, except for school holidays) starting early in the morning. It was a lot of work but completely worth it as we are very proud of how the series has turned out. Check out some of the vlog vlogs if you'd like to see more from behind the scenes. Thanks so much for asking!! Keep watching :)
