The web series is about Justin, a thirty-year-old, jaded actor who takes under his wing Aaron, a naive actor in his twenties as they try and work their way through the depressing world of commercial auditions. Watch as they hit on actresses, try to rattle the other actors, and fight with each other to try and book a sweet commercial gig.
This will be a music video for Camille’s song “Monster Under My Bed” off her new album Silly Jazz. This video is meant to be whimsical and fun. Even though her songs aren't necessarily children's songs, the video will have a child-like feel because the action will take place in a diorama (like the ones that children make out of shoe boxes.) She will use cardboard, construction paper, toothpicks and other "crafts" materials. Using a green screen, she will insert the actors into the diorama and they will interact with props so that they look like they are the size of dolls. The music video will be silly and fun! Just like the lyrics! This will be a music video that kids and adults will enjoy.
This is a comedy web series about Bonkers, a bottomed-out clown living in downtown Los Angeles. Faced with years of mounting depression and hopelessness, Bonkers has turned to vigilante justice as his only way to engage with the world. By day, he's a children's party clown, operating his freelance business alone out of a dingy apartment. He rides the bus to gigs and drinks his way through his days off. But at night, Bonkers comes alive. Ever since his wife was killed years earlier, he's made it his mission to rid the city of its dangerous criminal element, one bad guy at a time. He does it with a vicious style of street justice, and no regard for collateral damage. This is a story about loneliness, sadness, violence, and revenge. It's about hiding from the world by day, and ruling the streets at night. It's about one clown and the city he lives in, constantly at war with each other. There will also be some balloon animals.

Hardly superheroes at all, really. A run-of the mill crime fighting duo must overcome a sudden existential crisis to save the girl, defeat the villain, and take their first step into the world of A-List heroics! Think Scott Pilgrim vs. The World meets Wes Anderson. That will ultimately be the overall tone of the piece as well. A nice amalgam of pop fizzle and art house - like Drive, but streamlined, more light-hearted, with superheroes. Mediocre superheroes. Nothing should be taken terribly serious - thatʼs the fun in it.
