Vivid, a live-action and animated television and film production company founded by Josh Weinstein in 2013, is the latest entertainment and entertainment-related venture to emerge from the digital revolution.
Now in its third year, the company has made its debut with the release of the first live-TV movie, A Million Ways to Die in the West.
Weinstein is the first to introduce the film in full, and the trailer features scenes of an all-new, fully-digital universe.
We caught up with Weinstein to learn more about his company and its first live television movie, and we also got a sneak peek at what’s to come in the film.
What was it like to make this movie, then?
The first time I ever did a movie, it was at my sister’s house.
It was just a crazy, crazy time.
The first thing I thought was, “This is going to be amazing.”
The first two hours were so crazy.
It felt like we were on a spaceship, flying through the universe.
What’s the process like for producing a live television series?
It was kind of crazy.
Josh and I have a great relationship.
I know him from the movie business.
He’s very involved in the industry.
We sat down together and it was a very fun time.
Josh, I think, had already had the idea in his head about doing something with a live TV show, so we were just sort of brainstorming the stuff he wanted to work on.
When you see the movie, I’m sure there are things I can do better than he can do, but I think we’re going to end up in a really cool place.
How much money has Vivid spent on the show so far?
There’s so much stuff going on in the show that’s very different from the reality of reality television.
It’s a very different story.
So we’re really happy with where we’re at right now.
The story has a lot more twists and turns.
We are very lucky to be able to be in this space.
What can you tell us about the character of Jake?
How does he fit in with the rest of the cast?
We’re going through a lot of different characters.
It is a very complicated character.
The most interesting part is that he’s so well-adjusted.
He really is the opposite of Jake.
We really like that.
He just has this kind of quirky personality and he has a very unique relationship with the characters he’s dealing with.
So, there’s a lot to do with this character.
He has this sense of humor and he’s very compassionate.
He takes it all in stride.
I’m really excited for what the next season of the show is going be like.
How did you and the other cast members get involved in this project?
We met Josh and we were really excited to work with him.
We got to go to his house to shoot the first episode and it’s been such a great experience.
It has been so exciting and fun to work together.
Josh has been a huge part of our team for a long time, so it was really fun to be a part of it.
How has your experience with social media changed the way you do business?
I think it’s changed the industry and changed the landscape of television.
When I first started, social media was something that was sort of, “We’ll just show you a video, let you see what we’re doing.”
But now, you have to get your product out and be really well-connected with the world.
There are a lot new ways of doing things, and I think that’s changed things a lot.
What do you think of the social media reaction to the first season of A Million Reasons to Die In the West?
It’s just awesome.
The reaction has been amazing.
There have been so many amazing comments from the fans, and they’ve all been so positive.
We’ve had some great comments about it from other people, but it’s all positive.
You’ve got to have people in your corner.
When the show came out, you guys had a really positive response.
How does the production process work?
We work in a very tight environment.
We have all the production and editing done on our own.
We just start off by looking at the original scripts and what’s needed for the show to be successful.
Josh does a great job with the editing, so there’s not much to it.
The other thing that’s really important is that the content has to be great.
I think our show is the most diverse and interesting.
How will you adapt the show into the world of a live series?
We don’t want to take it too seriously.
We want it to be something that you can see for yourself and enjoy.
The audience has to see the show for themselves, too.
We’re also not going to take ourselves too seriously either.
There will be some scenes that
