Chapel: The Series is the new web series by Rob Matsushita (Claymore Pictures) and Emily Mills, featuring collaboration with some of the finest acting and technical talents in Wisconsin.
After creating the character of Chapel for a Wis-Kino 48-hour film challenge, Rob and Emily went on to make a total of three shorts centered around the unlucky drug dealer (episodes C, D, and E)--and Emily wrote a book detailing Chapel's backstory--before deciding to turn it all into a web series.
The proper series had its grand kick-off in January 2010 and the first season (episodes A, B, and F through J) wrapped at the end of the year - running on zero budget. Now it's time to start shooting the six episodes of the second season, and the hope is to have a little bit of cash on hand to make it happen.
Chapel is a drug dealer. Not a very lucky one. Mostly she'd just like to make it through the day without having to borrow someone's gun...
A genre-bending tale of hard knocks, desperate acts, absurd situations, and real depth, Chapel promises to be a series that will make you laugh, cringe, fist-pump, cheer, and maybe even shed a single tear.
