Interview With Creator Jill Golick
Jill Golick talks about creating Ruby Skye P.I.
Ruby Skye P.I. isn’t just a television show. The teen-targeted web series blurs the line between fact and fiction, interacting with the viewers between episodes and connecting the story to real life.
Cara Stern of the Canadian Jewish News recently interviewed Ruby Skye P.I. creator Jill Golick about the series and her love of interactive web original entertainment.
“Ruby Skye P.I. isn’t just a television show. The teen-targeted web series blurs the line between fact and fiction, interacting with the viewers between episodes and connecting the story to real life.
Jill Golick, the creator of the program, has built a batch of websites that bring viewers into the story. For example, there are Tumblr accounts for her characters – a microblogging service popular among teenagers – where fans can follow the characters’ posts.”
In the article, Jill talks about why she loves creating for the web. She says it allows her the freedom to create great female characters — something that’s not as easy on TV. She’s also enamoured with the way the web brings audience and storyteller together. She loves the fact that people who watch Ruby can talk about the show online — with each other and with the creators.
The article talks about some of Golick’s more experimental web creations and how Jill moved from being a TV writer to a web creator.
