Kate joins me to tell us about peopleWatching, an animated series that she’s really proud to be a part of. Watch us talk about the show, and tell her funny story about her audition for it. Below, you can catch the entire first season.
I had the pleasure of meeting That’s My DJ creator and director D.W. Waterson and co-producer/actor Emily Piggford at T.O. Webfest this year. I was totally blown away by their beautiful series. I think you will too. Prior to the awards ceremony (at which they won best Director, Best Drama and Best Canadian Web Series!) I had a chance to chat with them.
Every year, the end of February is a busy time for Canadian web series makers. It’s when we’re pulling together our application packages to submit to the Independent Production Fund, one of the only narrative web series funds in the world. The first of March is generally the deadline, and on that date each applicant posts a trailer or concept video to demonstrate what their series is all about. Last year we submitted But How Do You Have Sex?, which did not get funding for. Many of the stories we planned for that series got rolled into Out With Dad’s Season 4 – so it’s not a total loss! This year, I’ve submitted Ephemeral Connections, a project I’ve been musing about for several years now. It’s something I’m very passionate about, and look forward to producing with or without the IPF’s help. I’ve included that concept video at the very bottom of this post.
HappyHer sets out to capture the beauty of travel and the magic of stories they discover along the way. Cornelia and Lindsey have met countless women and asked them to tell their stories and answer the question “what makes you happy?”
