The long-awaited 4th episode of our comedy web series Braj Squad is finally here! This episode has been almost three years in the making! It’s release is a very important moment for us since this was the last script written by our friend, Patrick Krainert, before his passing in 2013.
We wanted to do his work justice on the screen, and the weight of this responsibility was not lost on us. Part of the reason we took so long making this episode is that we took great care to make it the best that it could be.
Those of us who knew Patrick best, knew how good he was at making people laugh. He was a true artist, and that is more evident than ever in this script. Much of the story here remains exactly as he wrote it three years ago.
Of course, certain elements of the script had to be changed since, originally, the character played by Patrick was a big part of this episode. It took several sessions of the writing team putting their heads together, adding to the groundwork of Patrick’s original script until we settled upon a final version that we thought best preserved the story that he wanted to tell, while adding the voices of some new characters who will carry this series into the future. It was a monumental task taken on by the writing team, consisting of original cast and crew members: Ryan Organ, David M. Williamson, Jon Keyes and Ryan Cass, joined by new cast members: Ryan Dennan and Matthew Loewenstein.
From start to finish, this episode was a real team effort that we are extremely proud of. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed working on it.
