During filming, it was incredibly exciting to watch the actors work in front of the camera, because you were never sure what the actors would do or say. The improvisation didn't end there however. Wheelhouse was uniquely a 'choose everyone's adventure' web series, meaning that the audience would determine the nature of each week's episode.
Each week the audience was given three options from which to choose, and I would have in stock 3 edits of the film that corresponded to each choice. The one the majority chose would be released.
Some of these choices only changed a portion of the episode but they would still affect the rest of the episodes and even the next season. Other choices led to 3 very different scenes. I may release these other realities as part of a download of a more exhaustive Wheelhouse film experience, since only a small fraction of it was used in the final product.
Well, preparations for the second season are already underway, and I am also preparing a cut of Wheelhouse that will be completely silent, encouraging viewers to supply another soundtrack to play over the film. Hopefully this will provide another opportunity for audience sway and expression. Stay tuned and thanks for your viewership.
See you out there!
