ATTENTION SHORT TERMERS!

The season 2 premiere is fast approaching and we, the Short Term team, wanted to take a moment and thank each and every one of you for your support of season 1. If it weren’t for the fans, it’s likely that this story about the dysfunctional adventures at the “Short Term Temporary Staffing Agency” would have ended with Molly’s 2 week notice (SPOILER ALERT).

With season 2, we’ve brought back everything you loved about season 1, added a few new faces and a ton of new laughs and once again, we’ve created the best comedy on the internet. (I’m talking to you Guild fans).

So, on February 15th, I ask you all to show your support, and not only watch the season 2 premiere, but share it with your friends, family and co-workers. It’s only through you that we can continue to tell the story of these great characters.

Thank you all for your continued support and we’ll see you on February 15th at 7am EST (4am PST).

Sincerely,

Jeffery L. Parks

Writer/Co-Creator

Short Term is an independently funded web series production. In fact, the entire first season was funded out of the pockets of the creators. The series has already garnered loads of praise leading up to it’s official release, thus prompting the decision to green light  Season 2. However, this costs money, and that’s where you come in…

Equipment rental, crew costs, actors, web hosting, transportation, location fees… (deep breath) These all cost money. By donating, you give us a chance to continue and improve upon what has already been established. With your help, darkly lit corners and muddled audio will become a thing of the past. Not to mention the ability to increase the overall production value of the series tenfold. Just like jobs, people are always going to need a laugh, and with your help, at least we can guarantee there will be plenty of those to go around.

Visit our Indie Go-Go page, http://www.indiegogo.com/shortterm and take around. You’ll note that no donation is without reward. In fact there are several levels of donations, with many different reward options. Rewards range from shout outs on Facebook and Twitter, calls from the cast, insider scoops on season 2, autographed posters, and so much more. Oh, and be sure to tell’em Lloyd sent ya for an extra girthy shout out.

So if your excited about season 2, and you’re looking for a way to help out, we welcome what ever you can offer. That is unless you’re a large company (*cough* Subway) that likes to have your products placed in shows without mercy and are willing to give out sponsorship dollars. Then I say, give us what you got, we have no problem plugging something without reservation like an episode of Chuck. Once again thank you for your time and support.

Now go watch season 1 again.

Post production is coming along nicely on Short Term and we couldn't be more pleased. Tonight, we shot our first round of pick-up shots, with more later this week. That means, by weeks end, all photography on the season one should be in the can.

Many have asked, "when can we expect the first episode to be online?" The answer to that is still being worked out, but look for season one to go live sometime after the new year.

In the meantime, don't forget to check out "Karen's Tips" and keep checking back here at www.shortterm.tv for updates and news.

So with the exception of a few pick ups, we have finished shooting the first season of Short Term. It was a lot of fun, so proud of the cast and crew for all of their hard work. Though the premiere of season one is still a ways away, enjoy some behind the scenes pictures of the shoot below.

www.shortterm.tvWelcome to the first Short Term production diary. Some of you may be asking "What is Short Term?" I say, "good question." Short Term is the brain child of Heather Horton and Jeffery L. Parks, and takes a behind the scenes look at the business that is temporary employment. Sounds exciting, I know. In the coming weeks, we will bring you behind the scenes look at the production of the series as well as give you a chance to meet the cast and crew that are working hard to bring the show to life.

For now, there's a ton of work to be done, including this website. Keep checking back, because as we move forward, more and more exciting things are going to be added. Also, don't forget to follow us on Twitter (@ShortTermTV) for up to the minute news about the show.
