Elena Colás wrote a review of Words Fail Me for Chicago Literati and gave it 3 out of 4 stars:
Robert Bruce Carter takes us back to the storytelling basics with his web series Words Fail Me. With a jolly soundtrack and quick editing, each pair of characters find themselves in wacky situations under a simple premise: I know something you don’t know. From there, things get delightfully weird. Fans of improv will love it, and the casual addition of absurd plot points gives both the actors and the audience more to chew on than just a simple sketch.
Elena also interviewed me about how I come up with ideas, my writing process, balancing day jobs and artistic endeavors, and much more. Read the whole thing here.
I released the first episode of my web series, Words Fail Me, today:
The editing is complete and the episodes are ready to go. I’m really happy with the way things came out. Sure, there are spots where I look and think that something could be better, but overall I think it looks and sounds professional and that the actors all came through and most importantly, I still laugh after watching an episode for the 200th time.
In the next few days I’ll write up a more detailed account of how it was made on the series blog.
Here’s the trailer again:
Check out the series site for more details and to get all of the episodes when they come out.
