I already have a full-time job, but would desperately love to be a remote writer for the show. Especially if they allowed me to provide a couple of invention exchanges. (I have about 20 of them tucked away if anybody’s interested) Here’s my example riffing audition:
I also wrote a good number of the riffs for our fan-riff of The Incredible Petrified World, which is still… uh… in production limbo, in no small part to me being extremely busy on other projects at the moment.
I’m one of those people who tends to have so many irons in the fire that there are no more irons or fire left over for anybody else.
Over the years I’ve tried my hands at just about everything from comedy writing, to graphic design, puppetry, webcomics, video editing and production, sculpting, painting, RPG and game design, telesnap reconstruction of lost television episodes, plus theatrical/fan-film/haunted house costume and prop building. I also have a partially assembled Dalek and an Ant weight Battlebot named “Blend-O” sitting out in the garage. I’m married to a theatrical costume designer, so we frequently end up collaborating on projects.
But for the last 5 or so years, I’ve been channeling the majority of my creativity into 3D model making, specifically building articulated 3D printable action figures for the “unloved” monsters of classic 60/s70’s era Doctor Who who have never been given an officially licensed figure of their own. Many of these include special light-up elements, spring drives, pullback motors, or any other bells and whistles I can think of to cram inside. (All of these templates are available for free on https://www.3dprintingdoctorwho.com/ for anybody who wants to take a look)
So, basically, I’ve got some comedy chops and a wide range of esoteric knowledge to pull from, but I also have an understanding of the physical process and limitations of how production and physical effects work, especially in a theatrical or “live to tape” type setting where there are no quick edits or fancy visual effects, and a fallible human needs to be able to make this mechanical apparatus work (be it a puppet, prop, or special effects) while hitting their mark and saying their lines, preferably with the option of a second take if the first one goes pear-shaped.
