Things to do in #COVID Self-Quarantine: Write A Letter To Mrs. Maisel!!
Our founder and director at Wasteland penned this letter to Rachel Brosnahan, star of “The Magnificent Mrs. Maisel” this moring and sent to her as a DM. Not sure if she will reply, but its a ripping good true story!
My name is Colin Rowntree, an Indie film director for about 25 years, and have a bit of an offbeat story to tell you about how you and I had a rather unusual “3 degrees of separation” moment early this year.
In January, I was a speaker at a film conference in LA which specialized in Indie “adult” film making that aims to educate screenwriters, directors, and actors on things they can employ in their craft to elevate the quality of their films and increase viewership. The session I was presenting focused on the use of character development to increase viewer loyalty in episodic film series. As my wife and I are ardent “Magnificent Mrs. Maisel” fans here in New Hampshire (yes, we live in the same town as Ken Burns ironically), I used your “Midge Maisel” character as the sole example of how to effectively do this.
During the seminar, I noticed a woman in the audience taking photos of me while I was speaking and figured I was going to end up on her Instagram or Twitter feed. But, in the hallway outside the ballroom after the session, she approached me and said that she sent them to a friend, and her friend replied that she had sent them to Rachel Brosnahan, who is a friend of hers from college. She also said her friend told you that she also informed you in the message that you were being used to set an example of using a character in a series as an anchor to increase viewer loyalty…. at an adult film director/writer/actor conference. The woman in the hallway said her friend texted back to her shortly and said that you had replied something to the effect of “Woohoo! I have ARRIVED!”.
So there we are. An unusual tale of three degrees of separation, written during self-quarantine in New Hampshire. Hey, all film production now on hold so I am enjoying doing some writing like this to pass the time and keep the brain engaged!
Tits up for Season 4! Can’t wait!
