Everyday life, when led by … is a brilliant idea. What would your life be like if it were led by the likes of Quentin Tarantino? Director Alan Del Tufo asked this question three years ago. He told us “One day my friends and I complained that we were all having a really boring week. Then we started joking and said that we needed Quentin Tarantino to guide our days: “Wouldn’t be so boring then!” The jokes expanded to how our routine days would turn out if we had different directors to decide our fate.”
Sometimes this is how the best ideas start. Everyday life, when led by … is a prime example of how a simple idea can become a snowball and transform into something more. We asked Alan how this idea turned into a web series. “We had so many laughs that the next day I wrote the pilot for “Everyday Life, if Directed by …”. I met up with some actors and my production team, and a month later I was filming a pilot.”
As the pandemic grew in demand for online content, people were stuck in their home looking for something new to watch. Luckily for Alan, Tongal, an LA-based advertising agency, was looking for content for their YouTube channel. Alan added, “I gave them the idea and submitted the pilot. You did it! They picked it up and funded me for three more episodes. “
The web series has rightly proven to be very popular. This is a great concept and a very fun watch. Check out the whole series below.
Everyday life can stagnate, everyday life can become boring … but what if everyday life was led by a famous filmmaker? Welcome to Everyday Life, If Directed By …, a web series that explores this very question.
