Director Biography – Ed Toolis

I have always thought that creativity is the human race’s most admirable quality, that it is what history was all about, and was something I always wanted to be. And to my mind, humor is the most creative form of writing.
Much, much later I figured out something else about it. Certain kinds of people need creativity for their mental health, and I was one of them. Seeing projects evolve in one’s mind has to be one of the most incredible experiences a human being can have. When a great idea for a piece hits you, it opens the door to the imagination and all kinds of interesting and inspiring thoughts come flooding through. And although this might sound a little crazy, the best things that happen to me in my life, are happening in my head.

I am the author of 4 books, that the series is based on.
There’s an App for That, book 1.1 thru 4.0. I’ve also written Humor, Comedy & Sketch Comedy. I am a financial supporter for the Lincoln Lodge comedy club, in Chicago, and was the Main EP for Monuments, the movie

Director Statement

Comedy is the most creative and concentrated form of writing, that there is. All the plot points and character development of whole 90-minute movies can be covered in a 12-minute sketch. But not only that, the web series could very well be the next innovation in the field of entertainment. I define it as recurring characters or a parade of character, who fully explore a subject in a way that both informs and entertains. If all the scenes follow the rules of sketch structure, like I write, they are like rapid-fire action adventures, with one humorous observation about life, love and the human condition, building to a climax. And finally, since they are mainly dialogue, they are transmedia. They work just as well in print, and with voice-overs added to do the stage directions, they can also be podcasted.
