So I stumbled upon Ray William Johnson’s YouTube channel the other day (it’s kinda of hard not to when you’ve been exploring for a few months) and watched one of his =3 shows. Needless to say I enjoyed it but at the end he was promoting what looked like a movie called Riley Rewind, so when I…

So I watch Ray William Johnson every once in a while on YouTube and he was super hyped over Riley Rewind, a web series project he had been working for quite some time now. Now that my finals are over, I’m watching it for the 3rd time and really picking it apart. I’ll try not to be so nitpicky…

I thank you for watching the series 3 times. I apologize for the cliches in the writing, but I relied heavily on archetypes to tell part of the story for me. It’s easier to believe that a goth girl is going to commit suicide than say, an average looking one. We are left with too many questions, questions that we did not have the time or budget to answer.  

I don’t want to make excuses, but it was my first time writing something that long :) In hindsight, there were many, many things that I could have done better, but I learned from the experience, and in the end, that is all one can hope for.

Ultimately, the series was based on my sister. Who had no one in the end of her life. She had a fight with every single person, pushing us all away. And she was a heavy romantic, who constantly wished for love, which is why I had Angela be susceptible to Edward in the end. Because yes, love is fucked up and twisted and weird, but when you’re a 16 year old girl, a boy paying attention to you is the most amazing thing in the world. 

I sincerely apologize for what didn’t resonate with you as a viewer, and I hope that in our next project you are much more satisfied.

I swear I find an obsession every day. Today’s winner is… ta-da! RILEY REWIND wrote by Anna Akana and directed by Ray William Johnson (whom I both love as well, they’re fucking brilliant) The plot is so good and original and the characters are poirtraited with such intensity and passion. The relationships in this series are also very intense and you can see the strong bonds formed between the characters (love, friendship of all sorts) as Riley keeps rewinding time and sees all sorts of scenarios, that unfortunately, have only one possible tragic outcome unless she does something to stop it. I fell in love with Riley from the beginning cause she is so funny and cool and really tough when needed …she is absolutely brilliant. I swear it’s one of the best series I’ve ever seen and I can’t wait for the rest. (Btw, chibi Rileys drawn by yours truly and edited pictures edited by yours truly…again -_-‘)
