Three Perth-based emerging filmmakers have announced their new project The Angry Man Series will launch via YouTube March 3.
Shot entirely in Perth over two days, the comedy web series stars stand up comedians Ben Sutton (AshBecLee, Henry and Aaron) and Sian Choyce (RAW State Finalist 2014).
The Angry Man Series is about Andy (Sutton), a normal guy who confronts people with bad social habits.
The web series was written and directed by Aaron Moss who is a recent top 10 finalist in the ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship in LA for his first feature screenplay Holly and Tyler.
“Our main character Andy represents all those moments in life you’ve ever wanted to speak up or get angry about. Andy is that voice inside us that calls it how he sees it.” said Aaron.
Emerging local producers Meg McPherson and Maya Kavanagh teamed up to work together after year of experience in the local film industry.
“We wanted to create a series similar to our favourite comedies – Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development – and make it as accessible as possible to an online audience” said Meg McPherson.
The project was self-funded and relied on the generosity of cast and crew to produce the show over the 2-day shoot.
“Being a small-budget production, we don’t have thousands of dollars in Facebook advertising to get the series out there. We are experimenting with other tactics to gain a large following.” said Maya Kavanagh.
All 6 episodes of The Angry Man Series will be available 6:00pmWST Tuesday 3 March via their website, Facebook page, or YouTube Channel.
