tv concepts

Concept: a TV show where every episode has a different setting, premise and genre, but it’s always the same cast of characters, with the same names, personalities, and broad-strokes backstories. Each episode begins in medias res and ends with a cliffhanger, effectively giving us dozens of individual slices from dozens of purely hypothetical storylines.

concept: a TV show with a dark, tragic, fucked-up beginning that steadily gets happier and lighter and more hopeful as the seasons go on, the narrative arc premised on healing and growth instead of a “gritty” downspiral, the challenges faced in each season finale leaving the characters in a progressively better place. nobody queer dies, and the worst things we ever see after season 1 all happen in flashbacks to events preceding the now. 

TV Show Concept: The Goyim Are Coming

A show about a MoDox Jewish family (mixed Ashkenazi and Sephardi, and it comes up) living in Brooklyn.  They’re working poor and just trying to survive, but then…gentrification starts, and they get new, rich yuppie goyish neighbors.

Simultaneously, it cuts to parallel stories set in 1491-1492 Spain and 1880s Poland/Russia/Ukraine with their ancestors (perhaps played by the same actors) dealing with the goyim showing up and being horrible.

The drama is obvious, the comedy mostly comes from

  • Treating the Jewish family like you’d treat other TV show characters
  • Jewish sarcasm/fatalistic humor
  • Some Aryan looking neighbor who THINKS they understand everything about Judaism but really, REALLY don’t, and the family gets to roll their eyes and explain things properly…except one of the kids, an 8 year old girl, who deliberately teaches the goyish neighbor incorrect things to mess with them (this is in all three parts of the show, the snarky kid is always there)
how to create aesthetic graphics

(a tutorial by rihleymatthews) 

so, many people requested me a tutorial on these (x and x) graphics, and since they are not hard at all to create, i decided to try explaining to you guys how they come to life. 

WARNING: this is a long and detailed tutorial. Please keep in mind I tried to show all the tricks I normally use for these graphics, so some steps are optional or extra.

you’ll need: 

  • basic to medium photoshop knowledge (such as cropping, blending and shadowing)
  • a concept (a tv show, a character, something you can pick objects to represent them or their porsonality)
  • patience, a lot of patience.

Concept: A children’s TV series similar to Dora that is meant to teach and immerse children in a foreign language, such as French, German, Arabic, Mandarin, etc.
It would start out slow, with a few phrases and words in the foreign language per episode, and the content would increase in quantity and complexity as the series progresses, eventually resulting in episodes that are almost completely in the foreign language.
This, with books of a similar fashion, would help children become interested in learning other languages at a young age, and immerse them in a language they wouldn’t otherwise hear if they don’t live in a country that speaks that language.

New concept for a TV show

 Mockumentary-style sitcom that is a sequel to Beauty and the Beast, in which the Prince formerly known as Beast learns to adjust to life as a public figure. He and his family claim that he was “held hostage by the beast” and have to hide the truth.

Awkward reunions with his overbearing parents, the king and queen (who had claimed he was dead and held a state funeral for him) and his annoyingly perfect little brother, Prince Charming, who was appointed the dauphin while he was stuck as a beast. Trying to figure out basic tasks in a human body. Knowing absolutely nothing about the culture and events of the last ten years. Belle tries to help, but since she’s a huge NERD, she often makes things worse.

Meanwhile, a subplot about how Gaston survived his fall from the tower but smashed his arm and face, losing his strength and looks, and tries to make his way in life without these advantages.

The trailer for the show ends with the Prince and Belle being interviewed for some talk show and this happening:

PRINCE: So, that’s how I’m planning on– you know what, I’m sorry, this shirt is really itchy against my skin. Is it okay if I take it off?

INTERVIEWER: Um… Sure!

BELLE: No. NOOOO. Keep your shirt on!

PRINCE: What? She said it was okay!

When Kaneki was younger, he would hide in the closet whenever his aunt got mad and lashed out at him. Hide (being the smart boy that he is) figured this out and put a listening device in his room. Every time Kaneki hid in the closet, Hide would sneak into his room through the window and sit in there with him, trying to cheer him up. At one point Hide joked about how it was like “seven minutes in Heaven” and started trying to give Kaneki little kisses, saying “smorch” every time he did until Kaneki started giggling.
