I have to say, we were quite surprised to be chosen so quickly. We only released the first episode of First Dates on July 27th, and on August 1st we got the email that we had been selected. It was rather stunning to us, given that we had only finished Episode 1.1 the Monday morning prior, and we still don’t have the 3rd episode that we had to send to Miami entirely complted. Nevertheless, our roughcuts appears to have done the job, and your boys and girls from First Dates will be down in South Beach on September 25th!
That said, we’d still love your support! The Miami Web Fest has a People’s Choice Award, in which the web series with the most online and offline votes gets awarded trophy and a cash prize! You can help us out by voting here!
So what happens now that we are in a web festival?
Well, for starters, you can expect some of us to be living it up on South Beach later this Fall. As much as we love making content that people can enjoy and laugh at, I think we enjoy South Beach even more! So we’ll be out there, watching a bunch of web native content, meeting and greeting with other filmmakers and content creators, and doing what we do best, imitating art in our real lives!
For those who want more information about the 2015 Miami Web Fest, you can check it out by going to their official website here. There you can get more information about the event and all of the festivities that will take place. You can also get all of the logistical information, like the details on the official hotel, where the screenings will take place and how much festival passes cost.
And if you just flat out want to know more about our participation in the festival, please feel free to hit us up on Facebook or Twitter, and we’ll be glad to answer any questions. As I said, we just found out about our selection this past Saturday, so we still have some info to dig up ourselves. But as we get more information, we’ll be sure to share it with you and get you all of the important details as soon as we get them.
Again, thanks for your support, and I hope you’ll keep watching First Dates since we’re big time “award nominees” now!
