The Story Behind Condition One Media
Years ago, Condition One Media began its journey unknowingly. In 2016, Tim Kirkpatrick, Bryant Tamayo, and Daniel Mills worked at a veterans’ readjustment center in Chatsworth, CA, helping veterans cope with the challenges of transitioning back into civilian life.
During this time, the idea for Condition One Media was born. Daniel expressed his desire to become an actor, having known that Tim was studying film in grad school. Bryant offered to produce it without knowing what he was getting himself into. The concept for the show “Figure It Out” emerged as they brainstormed the characters and their unique personalities, focusing on four roommates going through different life transitions. However, it would take a few more years before the show was scripted.
When the Covid lockdown hit, Tim was eager to create something during the quarantine. He began writing the pilot using his Final Draft screenwriting software, and after 18 months of writing, rewriting, hosting auditions, scouting locations, and handpicking the crew, the three friends filmed the pilot in just 4 1/2 days without storyboarding a single shot. It’s a true story of how Condition One Media came to be.
