Dear Dark Lord Wraps Filming on Season 1

Stole this from some lame school that sucks.

Dear Dark Lord wrapped filming on season 1 last week. Woawowwoah.

We made a web series!

Unfortunately, we didn't film everything in order, so we have to edit the damn thing! 

Anyways, we're done making new video clips, and we have a lot more time to do other stuff.

So, what's new with you?

First episode is coming out soon!


Filming Dear Dark Lord at Free Range Office

Shout Out to Free Range Office

When we wrote an office space into nearly half of Dear Dark Lord, we weren’t entirely sure where we’d film those scenes.

 

Meaning, we had no idea where we would film those scenes.

One of the challenges of filming our DIY web series has been finding suitable locations within our tight budget, but we didn’t want to settle for a space that would look amateurish.

Fortunately for us, the friendly folks at Free Range Office, a coworking space in Wicker Park, hooked us up for a reasonable rate. The beautiful, understated space let in plenty of natural light and gave us the perfect office environment for our scrappy DIY production. Here are some behind-the-scenes looks from our day of filming at Free Range Office!

More From Dear Dark Lord

We're sooooo, sooo close to wrapping production on Dear Dark Lord, and we should have something to show you soon. Sign up for our mailing list to stay in the loop, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Thanks again to Free Range Office for providing us with a place to shoot our office scenes!


P.S. Yes, I have gotten your emails about Ham Stevens. I have no idea how he is or how he keeps posting on this site. I cannot confirm that he is a real human, and we never hired an SEO Manager. We are still working on looking into this hack, and we are sorry for the confusion.

Set Shots from Filming Dear Dark Lord Season 1

Hi friends,

Pat here. I’m a writer and co-creator of Dear Dark Lord. I just wanted to share some quick set shots from production so far on this Chicago web series.

We’re coming up on one of our last big shooting days this weekend. I’ll likely provide a post-mortem on DIY filmmaking in Chicago when we’re done. Until then, here are some sneak peaks at the series. Enjoy — and keep in touch for more updates on our progress with the web series!

P.S. I do not know who Ham Stevens is, or how he got posting permission on our site. I’ve read your comments. We are diligently working on finding a solution to this apparent hack of Dear Dark Lord. Sorry for any confusion, and thank you for your patience.
