I’ve been hired to help write videos for a new website that will be popping up soon. Well, hired is a string word. More like offering my time. No pay. But, like all of your early creative endeavors, you usually work for free. Then that means I’ve been in my early creative years for . . . God I don’t want to think about it.
Basically, it’s a website for all things pets. Medical advice. Training advice. Shelters. Funny videos . . . that’s where I come in, because, quite frankly, I’m not a pet person. That doesn’t mean I don’t want a pet or that I don’t like them. I just can’t afford one and haven’t really had a pet since I was a kid. So, I don;t know a lot about pets. Because of that, I really have no choice but to write comedy . . being very careful to walk that line between funny and offensive.
See, pet people these days have very specific rules and morals when it comes to talking about animals. For instance, I didn’t know pet stores are really a no no. They are usually “puppy mills” that crank out dogs and cats through forced mating. I also was reprimanded for using the word owner. I’m supp[osed to use the word, “parent.”
Now you’re starting to see how I might be wrong for this assignment, aren’t you.
Well, the one idea that i came up with that the website creator loves is called Dog Boss. I can’t give you a lot of details, but I’ll leave you with this:
Once we get the actually videos up, I’ll share more. i ‘m actually excited about this one.
