Anyone who has taken a class with me or read Secrets from the Casting Couch, knows that I’m really big on actors creating their own work. The entertainment world is going more and more in the direction of webs eries. My attendance at a panel discussion yesterday at the Karlovy Vary Film Fest, called Interfacing with Hollywood, confirmed it once again. Leading Hollywood professionals are looking for content from small time actors and producers who are clever enough to develop ideas and produce them in web series.
Here are a few of my favorite ones. Please let me know which web series you recommend as well.
VERY MARY KATE:
This actress is hilarious and is smart enough to keep her spots really short.
Helenna Santos is a PR machine, and has a wonderful sense of self mockery
Also her husband: Barry Levy has created the fun Ex Convicts Guide
Lastly, Bonnie Gillespie turned me on to:
Etta Devine’s hysterical Mary Olsen, the Girl’s Night Out.
