Twisted Showcase launch Kickstarter campaign to produce a fourth series of hit web show starring Torchwood’s Gareth David-Lloyd.
Best known for his role as Ianto in Torchwood, Welsh actor Gareth David-Lloyd is returning to direct and star in the fourth series of the hit web show Twisted Showcase. The only British independent web series to be named in The Guardian top 25 must watch shows in 2012, Twisted Showcase, created by Wrexham based writer Robin Bell, is an anthology series, mixing genres from horror and psychological thriller to sci-fi and comedy. October sees the launch of the Kickstarter campaign to raise the £2,000 required to produce the fourth series. Fans old and new can support the campaign here and watch a special message from Gareth David-Lloyd on what to expect from the brand new episodes. As with the previous series, series four will draw on a range of modern anxieties to offer unique, stand-alone instalments, each offering something new and different to shock, amaze and entertain. Twisted Showcase will be revealing its line-up of directors, writers and actors over the course of the next week via Twitter @twistedshowcase
Writer and series creator Robin Bell: 'I'm still amazed at how far Twisted Showcase has come, from fumbling through our early films with a half broken camera and a crew of two, to seeing brilliant, respected actors making their directorial debut in our series and working with scripts written by BAFTA winning writers. With every series our ambition has grown, while retaining our trademark of psychological terror within the confines of a small budget. As with anything in Twisted Showcase, though, the achievement of dreams is accompanied by a nightmare, and that is funding the series. There's no easy way around this, but if this series is to happen we really need the public's help to make it a reality!"
Risks and challenges
Every series of Twisted Showcase hasn't followed the path we thought, so we have contingencies,
We write far more than we use.
We have lot of options for casting and crew
We have time to adjust when we shoot
We have proved over our first three series that we get the job done, and with one episode already shot we will get there again this series.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
