: Hey, y'all! I must say, Nothing Much to Do has got to be my favorite web series to date, so thank you. Question: how do you get the videos to seem so candid and genuine? The dialogue is the most realistic that I've seen in this type of storytelling. Is it ever improvised?

Thank-you so much!
We’ve said before, but it’s so cool to hear that NMTD seems so realistic. That was definitely one of our aims with the webseries. In terms of scripting and improvisation there was a script for every episode, the actors were given licence to change wording to make it more natural for them, but there were always beats they had to hit within a video. Even for videos which were more highly improvised (such as the Q&A’s) we always had a discussion with the actors about what the characters would say. The actors understood their characters really well, and they did a great job at improvising in role. It also helped that they all got along really well, which contributed to their onscreen chemistry. We are so grateful to have had such a good bunch of actors involved in our project!
