Alright, so because I am obsessive about Jules and Monty (thought, let’s be fair, wouldn’t you be obsessed if you’d been working on something for a year!) I thought I would do a weekly update on Thursdays about the past weeks episodes.
This week we’re starting off strong with THREE different episodes but from here on out there will be two a week, every Monday and Thursday. So, without further ado… here we go:
In which you meet Romeo Montgomery for the first time (aka Monty) as well as his girlfriend, Rose, and his roommate/best friend Mark.
This was actually the second episode we filmed and the only time we filmed in Ed’s dorm room. The room was baking—seriously it was a million degrees—so I spent most of my time in the hallway, watching the stuff; whoever said life on set isn’t glamorous… If it looks like Ed’s eyes are especially dark it’s because they are: the night before he played a transsexual German rock-star in the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch and was unable to get all of the make up off before filming!! Still turned out great, I think.
Where you are introduced to our other set of protagonists, Jules and her best friend Nancy.
This episode is the very first thing we attempted to film… and then we reshot it! It is incredible how much you learn while getting hands on experience and it was during the filming of this episode that we discovered the tone and style of our series. Fun fact: the picture on Jules’s desk is actually of her and her older brother Cliff (played by the wonderful Cole von Glahn); it was a nice coincidence that I just happened to have such a picture floating around. THEMING!!
Ostriches? Drunken shenanigans? Queen Mab? What isn’t to love about this episode! Watch as the boys head to the Kappa Fall Ball and get a little sidetracked along the way.
My favorite part of this video is meeting Benvolio for the first time as I think Paul Perrone, the actor portraying Ben, is hysterical. Is it just me or does he remind you a little of Mr. Bean? That camera toss was pretty tricky to choreograph as, of course, we couldn’t actually throw the camera. In order to pull of that stunt it required too crew members and about ½ an hour of practice but I think the end result is well worth it.
That's it for this week!! More to come every Monday and Thursday. Take a trip on over to our YouTube channel and check out the behind the scenes "vlog vlog" and make sure to like us on Facebook for heaps of updates.

South Hall 264 had been transformed into a set, or as close to a "set" as a sophomore dorm room could become. Then again, the set was supposed to be a…
