    Will they wait?

    Yeah, I think so. I mean again, I haven't even talked to them myself yet, I was just given the information earlier today that if I decide to go through with the deal, they'll assign me as executive producer to the show, and I can make four half-hour episodes "for review" before they decide whether or not they'll let me continue it as a series. But yeah, there's a LOT that I personally need to discuss and go over before I commit myself to this thing, but other than that, they sound pretty flexible and relatively easy to work with.

    Dude. Do it. You have zero to lose by submitting some pilot eps. If they like, and you go onscreen...WOOHOO!

    Do you know other folk who've done production? If so, bring them on board to help. Will you be paid at least a half a pittance for this?

    I do know quite a number of people (remember, I used to intern/volunteer at PBS), unfortunately, I doubt any of them have schedules flexible enough to help me out... heck, the puppeteer for Bethany doesn't have a very flexible schedule, which is a handicap, considering Bethany is Steve's girl Friday, our leading lady, etc.
    Uh... no... apparently, I have to pay THEM $24 a year to use their facilities and equipment, which is otherwise available at my disposal.

    Get a sponsor. Seriously.

    Now go kick some puppet butt. :)

    How many puppeteers (including yourself) will be working on this show?

    $24 a year doesn't sound bad at all as far as for paying for things goes.

    Well I'd need to audition three puppeteers for The Squirrely Squirrels, but they probably wouldn't have to come in all the time, since they're not as "important" as Steve and Bethany are... now Bethany on the other hand, she DOES have an understudy, but mostly for audio projects, such as "radio dramas", or when Steve talked to her over the phone when he got lost. Our own MrsPepper is her vocal understudy, BTW.
    I'm not saying it is, I was just explaining I know that that's something I would have to pay, I'm just not clear yet if I get paid for doing anything.

    Just a note of fact from "who cares if I never have the light," that I wrote in my post, that isn't supposed to be there. That was something else that accidentally got pasted in the post somehow. :p

    I have to admit, I wasn't quite sure what to make of that light comment. :p

    Yeah, see, I multitask, and when I'm doing so many things, sometimes other things accidentally end up in posts that don't belong...

    Good luck with negotiations! Just make sure whether they'd wait or not because you don't want the opportunity to slip by.

    I can just picture you being spotted by some famous producer, and then you can go to Hollywood. :p I dream to much.
