Thanks for the perspective Aaron, i’ve learned a lot of the same things trying to produce my own pilot. I’m glad things finally worked out for you, i actually found about this article through a VFX supervisor who’s agreed to join me in making my vision a reality once we have a budget and i’ve found its much easier to get guys like him on board who really resonate with the concept, versus agents and producers who are just in it for the money.
Side note, can i ask if the title “Panopticon” is a direct reference to Thomas Matheisen’s work? and can we get a sequel called “Synopticon”? :)
