  • Short Video 1 - Excerpt from OowieWanna- Short film which inspired the pilot
    04/08/13
    Creative Notes:
    This clip is an excerpt from the short film OowieWanna. I chose this clip because I wanted to show the unique dynamic between Mickie and her Uncle Richard. I also wanted to give you an idea of the musical element of the show-- The songs are a little edgier than a typical musical, and the sound design is bold and rich. Also, please enjoy a sneak peak of an IchieWawa!
  • Mini-bible 2 - JUICY CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS, BETTER OVERVIEW
    05/10/13
    Creative Notes:
    I really dug deep and amped up the character descriptions and overview. I also had some time to improve the layout and the order of the information. I think the spirit of the show really shines through on the page, and I feel confident that this mini-bible is a great introduction to the world of OowieWanna.

  • Pilot Script 2 - OowieWanna - Alternate Laundry Portal aka Child Safety version
    05/10/13
    Creative Notes:
    This re-write is primarily in response to those that expressed concerns for child safety. Instead of crawling through a dryer, Mickie now crawls into a laundry bag, which opens up into a tunnel. I also tried to amp up the IchieWawa characters and make sure they each have a distinct voice and POV. Additionally, I re-wrote The Lora's song so that it is now a manic commercial jingle, which I LOVE.
    Logline:
    After being taunted about her birthmark at school, Mickie discovers a portal to OowieWanna, where The Lora offers to remove Mickie's "stain." The sock-eating IchieWawa gang intervenes before Mickie loses more than just her birthmark.

  • Pilot Script 1 - "Stain-Removal"
    04/04/13
    Creative Notes:
    A mix of live-action and puppetry, OowieWanna is an imaginative show about the challenges, heartbreaks and horrors of being a kid. I want this show to be rich with sincere emotion, but set in a fantastic world where we can take risks and have fun with the style and content. Music is less Disney, more Indie/retro. Aesthetic is less CGI polish and more crafty and touchable.
