The Room Actors: Where Are They Now? (25 MIN.)
TRA:WATN is a mockumentary television/web series that takes a fictionalized, tongue-in-cheek look at what happened to the actors in the 2003 cult film, “The Room” after appearing in what Entertainment Weekly called “the Citizen Kane of bad movies.” Pairing “talking heads” with docu-style footage, “TRA:WATN” follows seven out of nine of the original actors from “The Room,” as they comically struggle with either embracing or shaking “The Room’s” “worst movie ever made” stigma. Packed with Room jokes, Room references and Easter Eggs, the series will be a highly entertaining for Room fans, however the narrative elements and characters are compelling enough to attract those with no prior knowledge of “The Room.”

A comedy inspired by the women of Shakespeare.
Rack and Ruin (25 MIN.) A masochistic, people-pleasing Brit restarts her life at a toxic, high-end clothing boutique in NYC – ‘booby-trapped for humiliation and pain.’ Starring Angela Dee and Markie Post.What people are saying:’this is funny stuff. Angela Dee has created a hilarious web series’ – Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls’a (SERIOUSLY) funny 5-episode web series’ – Loren Raye (The TJ Show) ‘[Dee’s] a rare talent, an actress who can slide into comedic realms with ease and grace but one that also reveals the haunting insecurities that plague us all.’ – HuffPo Women’Few series offer a protagonist that you can immediately root for but Dee does just that here in an outing that not only pokes fun at the fashion industry but also effectively strips it naked to expose the insecure underbelly from which it tends to operate.’ – Huffington Post’This series is brilliant! I watched them all in a row’ – Bethany Watson (Z100 Duran and the Morning Show)
Open Tables (Chicago, IL, 75 MIN.) Within the walls of the trendiest Chicago restaurants, behind the closed doors of private dinner parties, and on the banks of The Seine in Paris, OPEN TABLES explores true love, love lost and the importance of a good main course.
