Decades ago the biggest artist goal would have been to write the “great American novel.” But in today’s technology age, it might instead be to create the “great American web series.” Local actor, teacher and producer Rick Gott – the producer of the award-winning web series “Dark Pool” – is living that creative goal. He and others from the “Dark Pool” cast and crew will speak to the local film community others at the Art Institute on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, at the monthly speaker series from the Capital Film Arts Alliance.

“Dark Pool” is making headlines, gaining fans, and getting awards. A recent Sacramento Bee article describes Rick’s experience winning a handful of awards at the L.A. Web Series Festival, and another story in the Sacramento Press gives some insight to why Rick started the low-low-budget project in the first place.
