Three Made-in-Vancouver Web Series

Over the past week, I’ve been contacted about three new (or at least newish) web series. Vancouverites will recognize a bunch of locations in these first two. The first is a comedy called The Jim–here’s a teaser (rated PG for strong language):

The second is The Vetala, and seems to be a bit X-Files-esque. Aesthetically, this feels heavily influenced by Battlestar Galactica. Here’s the first episode:

The third is the slickest of the three, kind of a sci-fi show featuring a girl and her wolf entitled Riese. Again, the first episode–note the great costuming:

Here’s a Georgia Straight piece about Riese.

    Wow, the first one was filmed right outside my former office building. I think I heard there actually was a gym down there…

    “The Jim” looks like something I worked on a few years ago called “Burn.”

    “The Vetala” is gorier than it needs to be. Too much wet. Ew.

    “Riese” looks really interesting. I love that there’s only two lines in 9 minutes.

    Hi Gillian,

    I’m Ryan and I’m one of the co-creator/writers of The Jim. I wanted to say thanks for checking out the show. Being that you’re a writer you can imagine it’s been an interesting road as far as writing in a 5-8 minute format, trying to tell a story in short time, etc etc. Be sure to stay tuned in for Episode 1, which we’ll be airing on Mon Nov 23rd. Long live The Pacific Theatre!

    Thanks Again,

    Ryan

    The Jim link is now dead! It’s is now on Koldcast.tv so check it out.
    Riese has since won a Streamy Award. Vetala has won a Leo. Congrats Vancouver.
    One more to add is http://www.harddrive13.com/ Another conspiracy sci-fi web series filmed in Vancouver!
