It's been a while since we had a new video on this site, and what better way to kick things off with a fad that's sweeping the nation - asking celebrities for favors over the internet. It's hiring season in Hollywood, particularly with regard to television and the Bitter Puppet is aggressively looking for a new job, which lead to.... this...
In all seriousness, I am ready to move on from this business of script reading, folks. I'm hoping that this is the year I can transition into being a writer's assistant, for as we've discussed a number of times, that's an effective stepping stone on the way towards writing for TV. Hell, I'm not too proud to go in for a writers' PA gig either.
I'm aware that these gigs are competitive and that the slots that don't go to people the writers have worked with before are quickly reserved for studio or network-mandated favors. But I'm also a firm believer in the fact that there's always a way in through the door - or a way to make your own door.
So to anyone out there who might be hiring for such a position, I hope to meet with you soon. Don't worry - I have plenty of references. (You'd be surprised how many people are willing to vouch for a puppet!) Feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with any leads. And best of luck to everyone who's waiting to hear about the fate of their pilot!
And for those of you who enjoy these videos, a new stretch of episodes kicks off next week!
