It’s been no secret that I have been sidetracked with other projects, work, and life.
Journalism has been my passion, at the same level as film, and my main profession. Recent events in the world of gaming journalism has made me decide to step up, say something, and commit an act of journalism.
Recently, I had decided to take a step back to asses a situation that requires my attention. During a long break for the first time in a while, I have been able to think about past projects, future projects, passions, and what to do next.
For the past year, I have been going to conventions and events, hosting lectures on web-series production. The knowledge I have imparted has been helpful to many, but I have not been helping myself in the best way possible.
First, I need to give a proper update on Geeks. Geeks was a passion project of mine for many years. The goal was to produce a show that was not just about geeks, but showed them in a more intimate light that has not been seen in media. We produced a pilot, and launched a Kickstarter which did not succeed.
I want to thank everyone that has contributed and helped spread the word of this potential series. The campaign was a failure, but I am proud to have undertaken this attempt at telling a story. During production (in all phases) I learned a lot, and in turn, will be using my new found knowledge in futures projects.
Does this means the end of Geeks?
Not really. Pilot will live on in cyberspace, but we are not going to progress with this story or series. I am considering reviving the series in the future, with new characters, story ideas, and more; but not at this present time.
What I can say is that I have been working on the production, pre-production, scripting and treatment phases of two projects that I have been working on.
Con Survival Guide.
Con Survival Guide a new, informational, DIY, and educational show about the world of conventions. On this show, you will learn the ins and outs of conventions (anime, comic, video gaming, etc…) but not just as a standard convention goer, but also as a vendor, organizer, and guest.
We are currently in pre-production and scripting of this show, and will be posting more about it in the future.
Making the Con: LAMECon
Making the Con is a behind the scenes documentary series about conventions, and the work that goes into them.
The pilot season revolves around LAMECon (Library, Anime, Manga Enthusiasts Con), a on-profit, 2 day, Anime Con held in Land O’ Lakes Florida.
We are currently in production, with plans to release in 2016.
Last Henshin Heroes
Last Henshin Heroes is a project that has been on the P4P drawing board for years, and this year, we want to take a step forward. Originally titled Project: Armored Heroes, this was designed to be an homage/love letter to japanese tokusatsu shows like Super Sentai/Power Rangers, Kamen Rider, Metal Heroes, Ultraman, and more.
Last Henshin (the Japanese word: transform) Heroes tells the story of the surviving members of various henshin teams, teaming up to form a new team to defend the planet from an alien threat.
We are in the final treatment phase, and will be entering the scripting phase soon.
We plan on posting a special script preview on this site in the future, to see what you think.
We hope to keep going forward, and hope you will be there with us.
Till next time.

Late last year, P4Productions decided to make a web show.
Our projects in the past involved cop comedies, to super hero action shows. Sadly, those projects would unavoidably be pushed to the back burner, or canceled for reasons beyond our control. This would not stop us from producing a project . After a few brainstorming sessions, we steeled on producing a sitcom.
The question would be "based on what?". Our producer and series creator, Aaron Pabon, is a stand up comedian, and his comedy would be the direct inspiration for the show. The premise: a group of friends that deal with everyday issues, but cant help but be what they are, geeks. While the premise has been use before, we wanted to do something different; take away the geek stereotypes that have existed on TV and give geeks the realistic portrayal they deserve.
The Show: Geeks!
The Plot: A group of friends deal with real issues, everyday annoyances, and try to figure out what they need to do to succeed in life, all the while defending the fandoms the hold dear to them, going to cons, and kicking digital ass online.
We filmed a pilot in February, and are almost done editing a rough cut of the pilot. We will be having a soft showing at select conventions in Florida. Our first screening will be at Hurricon, a free, one day event run by the University of Miami Anime Club. Hurricon will be held at the Miami Airport Convention Center on April 19th.
