The Big Finish
Up until now, all episodes of Project Publish were broadcast live with just the cast and crew present in the studio, and the fate of the contestants was solely in the hands of the writing and acting judges.
But today was different! For our big finale, all contestants from the season were invited back, and BATV made room for a studio audience… in fact there were so many people there, we even needed a satellite viewing room elsewhere in the building. And we were honored to have Batavia Mayor Jeff Schielke as our final guest judge.
In addition, studio audience members, as well as facebook fans, were giving the opportunity to cast votes for the winning writer and actor. To add to the fun (and to fill time while the voting was taking place and being tabulated), many of us also-rans did our own little skit, lampooning the judges in a good-natured skit.
As you would imagine, the final pieces and their performances were extraordinary, and it was a wonderful finish to a wonderful experience!
