I'm sleepy. I'll fill this in tomorrow. Watch more of my videos here.
UPDATE!!!! I filled it in. Read all about it after the break.
Anyone watching these three videos can easily come to the conclusion that there's more to the story. As best as possible, here it is:
Most of the events that take place are factual. A few details are elaborated for the sake of the story. The person that Kindman represents is (obviously) a real person, but "Kindman" himself is a fictional invention dating back three rounds of stories now, all the way to Film School Rejects. The character of Larry Kindman has changed very little in each carnation.
Kindman first came to the scene in Film School Rejects. FSR was a five episode television show that I wrote a few years ago. It came from me being enamored with Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm and all things television and wanting to emulate it as much as possible. The plan was to write something that I would shoot with friends at my Orlando condo. The story arc that developed was about the Rejects scrapping an entire episode of their internet show after it was completely shot and edited. My character (Jordan) insisted upon writing and producing an entirely new episode before their scheduled update ... 24 hours, to be exact. The rest of the gang, intimidated by the amount of work that Jordan was tasking them with, convinced him to bring in a hired gun: a crazy-talented editor who had a jaded history with Jordan.
Jordan begrudgingly okay's Kindman to take a shot at recutting the failed episode. The concept was to introduce the comedic element of a nemesis, but the backstory was dripping with drama.
Kindman's second incarnation came during the Beanie Boy Show. Here, Kindman began mirroring my own creative endeavors ... only he was far more successful at it. Had I kept producing the show, I would have eventually put a face to Kindman which would have resulted in a climatic show-down. Of course, had I done that, I probably would have never been able to use Kindman as the scapegoat for the three episodes of krumbinesBRAIN above, which is Kindman's third incarnation.
In a nutshell, that's the story behind Kindman. The story behind the person Kindman is representing in these videos?
Maybe we'll save that for some other time ...
