David May’s “On the Lot” expierence

I’ve been asked by some friends to blog about “On the Lot.”

For those of you who are not familiar with OTL, I’ll offer a quick explanation. Basically, it was a show produced by Steven Spielberg, Mark Burnett, and David Goffin that was intended to be sort of like the “American Idol” for filmmakers; the search for the next “great American Filmmaker.” The show was on Fox on the summer of 2007 and I was one of the contestants.

Naturally, there are lots of things that I really just can’t blog about; I’ve been sworn to secrecy. What I can say is that it was definitely an adventure that I won’t soon forget. I started the application process in October of 2006 by submitting a short film that I created at Chapman University entitled “Fetch.” While at the Denver Starz International Film Festival with my most recent short, “Itsy Bitsy” I received a phone call from the “On the Lot” staff. I was very excited. After that, I followed their instructions until they lead me “On the Lot.”

That’s the long and the short of it, anyway. Feel free to ask me questions if you like, and the questions that I can answer, I will.
