Donna, Joey, Kyle and Steve are four high school metal heads that dream of making it big with their folk metal band, Loch Ness. Now, all they need to do is figure out how to keep a lead singer. However, in their hometown of Omaha, Nebraska there’s not a lot of candidates lining up for the position. With overbearing parents, lack of funds and a bass player who manages to get it wrong more then right, will they ever keep it together long enough to truly rock out?
Cast of Characters :
Never really fitting in with the girls, Donna always considered herself one of the guys – just prettier and better smelling. With a meddling mother and an enthusiastic father, Loch Ness and her keyboard are her only outlets for expression.
Neal Peart. Lars Ulrich. Dave Lombardo. The great drummers of our time and Joey considers himself one of them; now he only needs to get the rest of the world to acknowledge it. With the passion and the looks to make him a superstar, he will lead Loch Ness into greatness despite all of the odds.
Pessimistic and cynical, Loch Ness’ lead guitarist tends to be a Debbie Downer despite being from the rich side of the tracks. At 17 and the baby of the group, he yearns for the day that he can buy his own cigarettes and prove that he is a true metal head.
Even with his constant pot smoking and video game playing, Steve still finds the time to write killer bass lines. Which is good; since everything else he tries to help with tends to cause more problems then solutions.
Loch Ness: The Real Life Band
Like all great movies (and a few bad ones), Loch Ness: The Web Series is based on a true story. Yes – there was a folk-metal band based out of Omaha, Nebraska called Loch Ness not that long ago. It was their journey to the land of metal that inspired the series creator and original Loch Ness band member, Christina, to share the tale.

Where’s my reward?
Don’t worry metal heads - as long as you have given us your mailing address, you will get your reward. We have included all of the rewards into our budget and have appropriately scheduled the time needed for delivery. Of course, there is a chance that there may be delays with the vendor. If so, you will be notified via email of the delay and updated on the new delivery schedule.
Why is it taking so long for Loch Ness: The Web Series to be released?
There are many dedicated people involved in making Loch Ness: The Web Series and coordinating schedules can sometimes be a challenge. This, of course will delay our production schedule. Certain scenes, such as concert scenes with many extras, will take extra care to make sure everyone is available at the same time at our given location.
Great editing often looks easy but it actually takes a lot of time to make something so effortless. When something is edited poorly, it is noticeable and can ruin a project. The editing process might have some schedule setbacks in order to make it look great.
