This hilarious web series will chronicle the beginnings of an aspiring actor and his polar opposite screenwriter roommate

About this project

The plot of the web series follows a young upcoming actor and screenwriter, as they chase their lofty dreams in the grueling entertainment industry.  The young aspiring actor (Chase Von Asten) comes from a background of wealth and success.  He was his high school's prom king and former star athlete.  On the other hand, his roommate the sluggish screenwriter, (Ricardo Ramon) comes from extreme poverty.  The two find each other through an ad on craigslist for cheap living in the North Hollywood area.  And from the moment they step foot in their apartment together two worldly different characters collide.

Director/Producer/Editor/DP: Corey Turner

Screen Writer/Actor/ Co-Producer: Dave Rodriguez

Actor/Co-Producer: Kevin Truitt

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges of completing such a webseries are the expertise of pre-production and planning 12 episodes to be shot within a week, they will need to be shot within the shot time span because of financial constraints of renting gear and being charged by the day. Our producer/director Corey has experience in doing long shoots and planning them so they can fit the allotted time.

Creating a film or tv series creates unique Challenges such as gaining access to locations that are necessary to telling the plot, choosing the perfect actors for the roles and negotiating a time that fits everyone's schedule. In Southern CA the weather can change quickly so even if we plan perfectly a sudden burst of rain will ruin our shoot. All of these reasons may delay the final production of the webseries, but we will try our hardest to make extra plans for unforeseeable incidents.
