Emergency Frequency

Frequency Episode 2 "Just Friends" has some fun stuff and reveals the characters' connections.

We had fun shooting episode 2. It took us to the Pinhook and Cincinnati?
Travis & Claire getting friendly?

Deanna & Travis just friends?

What does Deanna do with this emergency? 

A. Sends the patient away and goes to lunch with the staff
B. Takes the patient's number & makes an appointment in the future
C. Takes care of the emergency right away

Watch EP 02 of Frequency Sci Fi to find out what the right answer is.

Silent Frequency

The farther along in the script we get the more layers we see unfold.

Today I got to read some of the up coming episodes. It was full of future/ past timeline elements. 
It was very fun to read.

It maybe a tall order for VIZ effects and I'm up for the challenge.
All I can say is that I have to be silent about the details of the story. 

I can say I laughed out loud. I can also say I cannot wait to get this in front of an audience.

As usual, you can see the first EPISODE of FREQUENCY at

Double the Frequency

Phase reversing is not my intention.
I am trying to pull an optical illusion.

By the Magic of television we now have two where there where one, episodes that is.
We are not pitch shifting sound or shifting light we just split it the one into parts.

We will have EP 01.1 & EP 01.2
On OUR NEW Youtube Channel = KVWorks1

There are a few very small tweaked but nothing of major proportion.

We wanted the Youtube experience to fit the length of the short attention span audience.


I want to sip and savor my sci fi in large blocks.

But YouTube is a wild west of viewing and we want to keep from being a ghost town of a channel.
SOOOO, we cut the episode into two nearly equal parts.

Episode 02 is aging in the big barrel in the warehouse. We will serve no SCI FI before it's time.

ETA is two weeks.
We will drop Frequency EP 02 before the NEW YEAR.


Speaking of 2013, I have listed a few things I'm looking forward to seeing.

Frequency Coldness

Here in NC we are not accustom to the cold. As a matter of fact, I used my ice scraper for the first time last week. I only used it once and my neighbor across the street did not need one on that morning. As a matter of fact, if was not too cold to clear the ice with the washer fluid.

All this is to say it is "f-ing" cold here. It was below 50 twice and I really don't like that.
Not this cold here -but it gets my visual across.

The cold has put  some outdoor scenes needed to finish EP 03 on hold.  When we get above 50 again we back out doors for a freak out and freak out scene #2. You will have to stay tuned to learn who and why we have a freakout.

In the mean time, you can watch EP 01 here.

Frequency head count

Writers truly do have the last word.

I have had many conversations with the writer about the current series's plot trajectory. I realized today that every character at some point has been killed off and then written back into the plot before the next production day. This amuses me.
Vexing the writer is not good.
Like the birth of Athena, Piper is concentrating on characters.

Today, the head count is still two leads and two main supporting characters as well as two reoccurring characters.

Stay tuned the head count may change depending on the writers mood and whim.

Frequency NOV 30 YES

I have to notify the next of kin before I officially post the first episode.

We will have the episode available NOV 30, unless something in the office explodes.

Three things to remember about Frequency Episode 01 "Freakiness Continues"

  1. NSFW
  2. On YOUTUBE in the near future
  3. Both MV and PK are in the episode in some way.

Frequency Inspiration

So the edit is oh so close.

I have a few hours left in NOVEMBER before it all melts into a new month.
Believe me I am crunching pixels as hard as I can to get this episode out the door.

I have to say there where a few plasces that the audio sweetening changed the feel of the scene. Amazing.

In the mean time, visit our Nashville inspiration, Wall of Jules.
Wall of Inspiration

Wall of Jules - these chicas are fun to watch and the music helps move a couple of scenes along.
Go like Wall of Jules on Facebook -

Frequency House Band
We also had the Frequency team throw together a band for a fun mash-up. I think this will happen a few more time for a few episode in the future.

No Frequency yet 01

The film festival was fun. We saw some good local flicks.

Most of the chick filmmakers made documentaries. I know this is a trend.

My guess is that men make narrative films 4 or 5 to 1. Why is this? We women are better at social message and group activities. It remains a mystery why women don't try to make a film. Perhaps filmmaking is not seen as an art form? or relevant to society? This stumps me.

Piper is the only chick filmmaker in our block

We are slowly moving the edit through the pipe line. I can crack the whip but really it is stuck behind a slow moving truck on a two lane up the mountain road.
I know I promised November. It will be the last day of the month if we are lucky.

In the mean time, Here is a quick snap shot from the last production.  I misread the label on the box everytime and I giggle. There behind the make up box is some of the snacks on the kraft services table.
We have seen this motor oil can before. This time Lisa Gagnon was not subjected to the special make up.

Snacks and "make up"

Frequency Carrboro film festival

This Sunday team Frequency will be in Carrboro, Paris of the piedmont and first town in NC with an openly gay Mayor.   (FYI- Mayor Mike Nelson has since moved on to do other things.)

Mike, way back when he was Mayor.

Intersect Ep 4 of Frequency will screen at the Carrboro Film Festival. It is the dedicated to local filmmakers making short films.

You can see the schedule of times and list of films here ----->    SCHEDULE     <----------
Random NASA inter galactic photo

If you aren't local you'll just have to wait to see Episode 4 on the interwebs.

I'll post some pictures of the filmmakers and other festival happenings.

I'll be back sooner rather than later.

Frequency EMT help

This weekend Frequency had a quick pick up scene in one of the subplots.

We had help from a very eager new comer. She played dead almost as well as Lisa Gagnon.
Lauren will likely appear among the mostly living in a later episode. <wink>

Day players are the best!

Tracy Walker was super great with the actual lines. Who knew so much talent was lurking in Durham.
Our Dale Shelley character was given more gruff lines for this scene. What do expect from the EMT in charge?

Thanks for Ish's great eye and bucket of blood.
What is a scene with an EMT without blood.

The corpse sits up so that we don't cause an accident. I love the look see review

We had a city police officer wave as we worked on the side walk of a busy road through downtown. I'm glad our little gorilla'ed scene didn't get shut down.

On another note about Episode 1 - Music is still being thorny. Tonight there is a jam session to create a few new grooves just for the web series.

I'll let PK post who is part of the jam session.

I am so excited about this. Too bad I have to work tonight, and will miss the fun with the musicians.

Frequency Post EP 01

The post process came to a crawl this week.

The color and audio post is work that is tedious for this impatient gal.
Plus I have contracted a terrible case of editor's elbow. Also known as tennis elbow.

This pain has effectively created a very real avoidance behavior pattern. I have switched to a track ball and moved the keyboard lower and the monitor higher. The ergonomic adjustment should be just the trick to keep the project moving.

On the other side of the office is where the audio sweetening happens. PK, who is the writer, is also a musician. Some folks may remember seeing the Kid Sister van rolling across the US in the late 90's and early 2000's. The music bed for those "special" scenes is in her loving hands.

I have to say that Frequency has prompted PK to dust off the guitar. I wouldn't be surprised if we reprise a few tracks from Kid Sister. BTW a hip hop artist has taken the name kid sister so if you google it you get her stuff. PK's band was way before this lass's career.

Not PK's Kid Sister

Frequency Pi and then some

How do you like that!!!  ---------------->

We made our goal plus 14% last night.  This is very exciting for us.

Truth is, it was only possible because we have awesome leading ladies.
Lisa and Meredith pulled in a big chunk of the support. You gals are the best. XXOO's

What does Pi mean for Frequency?

Well, first off we were able to put Deanna in new a wardrobe piece. 
I do so love this sweater!

Deanna contemplates her next move. Nov 2012 Frequency

The next thing it means is we get to keep the kraft services table stocked for the cast and crew.
I'm thinking apples, other fruits and nuts will come back as well as hot non-carb options.

The cast is very good role models for the writer and producer. (I have lost 8 pounds since hanging with them. Not that you can tell.)

We will continue to update the Frequency project here.
Look for the first episode very soon.

THANKS for tuning in.

Frequency & Hurricane

I am not a fan of the God hates (FILL IN BLANK) that is why there is this natural event.
I know there is a buzz on the inter-webs about SANDY and the liberal East coast -

Sandy is no joke it is massive! With eye in the atlantic and the outer edge reaching close the Mississippi River! 

Please take this serious and do as the emergency officials instruct.

While you still have internet, take a moment to enjoy our videos for Frequency at the indiegogo site.
It might take your mind off Sandy.

So... six days left in our campaign but I'm not worried. Oh no. Not me. I'm just... pondering. To illustrate me point, Claire is pictured here... pensive... pondering about π. But she and I, we ain't worried, chewing over, deliberating, questioning, ruminating, wrestling with whether or not you'll contribute... nope, none of that going on here. - pip

Frequency Sci Fi Pi plan

FREQUENCY SCI FI le$bian film

80% funded is great, but we are still  make hoping for a few more prime number donations.

$2,503Raised of $3,141 Goal

We had a prime number donated to reach a prime number total. I love my geeky supporters.

With every supporter we get closer to making FREQUENCY a reality. Our first episode will be available in November. I think you are going to like it.

We have only the freshest ingredients with organic lesbian gaze tossed in for you. Just in case it isn't clear to our readers, PK and I have had our toaster since the 80's. That's right the 1980's!
80's Icon Julie Andrews & Janet Jackson

SOOOO that is why we are asking for help. We are interested in creating a sci fi lesbian drama.

Scully - Reyes X-Files
The X-files although very watchable with our two favorite agents, was not enough. The fan fic was fun but KV Works wants to put the subtext in the foreground. We make it the main text of the story.

So we are making a venue to introduce to you Deanna and Claire our heroines. 

Please click on the campaign link to support our  project.
Really, it is BIG thing for us if you contribute any amount.
$15 puts you in a class to get stuff from us so check out the perks !
