During the pandemic many new web series have been popping up as they can often be filmed while maintaining social distancing--and often from the actors own homes. Companies that have already made web series in the past are also coming up with new ideas. I was recently approached by Yuri Baranovsky of Happy Little Guillotine Studios about a new web series that they have produced during the pandemic called Binge: How to Lose Weight in the Apocalypse.
What can you do if you enjoy live theater, but your local performing group has had to shutter its doors because of Covid-19? Well, Kings Players has an answer for you: a new web series you can watch on the kingsplayers.org website, designed just for these times and featuring 15 local performers.
Scott Davis is the Creator/Writer of The Disappointing Life of Cassie Starr, a new web series that will be set in and filmed in Fresno! We sat down with Scott to learn all about it.
Earlier this year I was approached by Yeal Shavitt about her web series Split. I checked out the first episode, which was all that was available, and loved it! It is an interesting fantasy web series featuring an LGBTQ character. After watching the episode, I interviewed Yeal about the series which she created, wrote, and stars in.
Recently I had the chance to watch a very interesting and fun web series called I Gotta Be Me, which involves impersonators of the Rat Pack (if you don't know who that is, it includes Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr.), whom I love! This is an awesome web series I highly recommend watching when it is available to the public. It is also filled with a very diverse cast. Recently I interviewed director and producer of I Gotta Be Me, Steven Bloomer.
Mystery author Libby Fischer Hellman now has her own web series called Solved! It is is a monthly mystery author interview show hosted by Libby and produced by Author’s Voice, itself a division of the Abraham Lincoln Bookshop in Chicago. We took a moment to talk with her about this new adventure.
As he gears up for an appearance at the Tulare Sci-Fi Con 2017 the second weekend of March, Fresno filmmaker Matt Sconce (director of locally shot films Stricken, Firefall, and Altar) sat down with Kings River Life to discuss his latest project, a 10-episode sci-fi web series called SuperBlam.
Rooster Teeth is a production company for online content based in Austin, Texas. They started 13 years ago when they began to create a web series called Red Vs. Blue in a small room in one of the founder of Rooster Teeth’s, Burnie Burns, apartment.
I enjoy discovering web series--there are so many great ones out there that more people need to know about! Recently I discovered an absolutely amazing pilot for a new web series called Intricate Vengeance! It turns out that it is from the creative mind of someone we have chatted with before--writer, actor, producer, and director Wilson Cleveland. So we took some time to chat with him about this amazing new series!
We love web series here at KRL and enjoy sharing new ones with our readers when we find ones that we really enjoy. This week we are reviewing From Mansfield With Love, which is based on the book Mansfield Park. Check out this fun video review, and then go check out the series!
