Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist
It seems like every summer there is a lull in TV before the networks and cable push out what they hope will be the next big thing - so now is the perfect time to check out a cool new web series to fill the gap
I've been impressed with Macinima's web content for a while - especially their superpower beatdown shorts as well as some of the films from their 2013 film festival - but this new web series is really good.

The Evolution and Revolution of the Web Series: SPLIT

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock recently, then you’re probably aware that TV is evolving. And, by evolving -- I mean traditional television is fading into the background and streaming content is stepping into the forefront. Dare I suggest that perhaps we’re in the midst of an artistic revolution? Yes.

One such evolutionary/revolutionary original web series worth paying attention to is the hybrid soap-meets-drama-meets-thriller, Split.

With two seasons under its belt, Split has racked up several festival awards and nominations at LA WebFest, Indie Series Awards and NexTV Web Series Competition. The show has also gained lots of fans along with way and this July it goes international heading to KO WebFest 2015 , Northeast Asia’s first ever web series festival.

Split comes from creator/producer Rebecca Norris and co-writer/co-producer Gabrielle Glenn , who I recently had a chance to interview to find out more about ...Read more

New Comedy Web Series 'WingWoman' Picks-Up Plenty of Role Reversing Laughs


We all know the traditional pick-up situation. A dude brings his buddy as a ‘wing man’ to assist with picking up the ladies. And, in today’s society it’s not uncommon for women to also bring their best gal-pal to help out.

But, what if a man was to rely on a woman to help him meet the lady of his dreams?

This redefinition of traditional gender roles is the premise of the new original comedy web series WingWoman (www.WingWomanTheSeries.com).

This hilarious series comes from actress/creator Victoria Barabas, who also stars as the savvy matchmaker for a hopeless romantic, played by Jackson Palmer. Keeping with the strong female leaders, Victoria brought in rising director Michaela Myers to helm the project. She also turned to the opposite sex for input, with the co-writer brother team Robbie and Joey Wunder.

I recently caught up with Victoria Barabas to ...

Elena Melener Launches New Series ‘The Mom List’ Showcasing Mommyhood and Margaritas


Being a Mom is hard work. And, many of you make it even harder by setting goals about Mommyhood that you’ll probably never be able to reach – nobody could.

That’s exactly what actress Elena Melener is about to take on with her new comedy series The Mom List. Launching today on Facebook, The Mom List offers up some homegrown shenanigans that every Mom (and Dad) will be able to identify with.

A Mother of three, Elena created the series as a way to stay creative, but also to showcase “one of the hardest roles anyone could ever play.” Based in New York, she has been a working actress and voice-artist for years, including voicing the cute Snuggle Fabric Softener bear and Robot Reba on the kids show, The Backyardigans.

New Comedy Web Series Declares 'There Are No Second Takes in Life...Take 2' -- just kidding!
Born out of the fear of filmmaking, the new original comedy web series There Are No Second Takes in Life…Take 2 is anything but fearful. Sketch comic and actor Stephen McNamee created and stars as a down-on-his-luck actor who records all the pitfalls and roadblocks of his career right from the safety of his own apartment.

Stephen took an interesting approach to overcome his filmmaking fear. He decided to do pretty much everything himself. That’s right -- he shot all 38 episodes without using any crew behind the camera. Aspiring to be more than a simple vlog series, he did bring in 23 actors and 17 bands to share their talents throughout the project.

To entertain fans further, Stephen has also created special interstitial segments as a companion to the series. These include episodes of his original mini-series The Powerpuff Girls: The Teen Years; along with Famous Meet-Cutes In ...Read more
