We’re filming a new web series!!!

What is “No Boys Dorm”?

No Boys Dorm is the shoujo-inspired spiritual sequel to (My) Immortal : The Web Series!

Lara No is a scrappy young punk girl who leaves Toronto to escape a criminal past, but when an apartment fire destroys everything she owns, her brother Leon invites her to stay at his all-boys dorm at a mysterious academy in Toronto.

When the RA demands to know what she’s doing there, the handsome Elite student Takashi Tesumi covers for her, pretending to be her boyfriend.

Lara doesn’t know why Takashi covered for her – he doesn’t talk about himself and doesn’t hang with the other students: stylish and overdramatic Jason, computer genius Isaac, bubbly and adorable Moe, and quiet, bookish Leon.

But there’s a problem: Teela Tether, the richest and most powerful student at the Academy, is in love with Takashi–and she’s used to getting what she wants. Seeing some poor girl swoop in on her property makes her see red, and she vows to expose Lara No as a fake.

To that end she enlists the help of the Shadow Order, a group of unscrupulous students who carry out the wishes of the Academy Elite…

Together, Lara and her best friend Alba must stay one step ahead of their enemies, help their friends, and navigate the strange world of the Academy.

When will it start shooting?

We filmed the promo to apply for funding, and will also be doing a Kickstarter this month! The shoot for the first season will be 21 days, so the debut episode won’t be too far behind!

What about (My) Immortal? Will there be a season 3?

Season 3 is definitely not off the table! We’d love to do more (My) Immortal, but it isn’t feasible right now.

We loved and love working on it, but there’s only so much we can do right now with a fanseries, and we’re hoping to take our filmmaking to the next level, with proper funding, actors and crew who get paid, all that good stuff!

We’re hoping to make an original series with the same magic so we can submit to festivals and networks and take our dramedy to higher places!

When can I know more?

Over the next couple of days, we’ll post promo pics, and more info about the series! We just hope you guys like this preview!

everything-really-is-glue  asked:

Candace Meeks, who do you prefer? Lizzie or Violet :)

Candace: 

As a Slytherin myself, I would have to say Violet. Though it’s much easier to play Lizzie.

With Violet I really worked on my voice and the persona I wanted to convey; not only is she evil but she’s proud; what does that sound like? So I channeled my inner Mae West and listened to a lot of Karen Oh

And with Lizzie, I think the pride thing is also a factor. Brian wrote the character in a way that not only is she everything that Violet isn’t, she’s also still the daughter of the dark lord and there is a privilege that comes with that

So I worked on giving a little bit of spice to that sugar

Especially with Hargrid, she likes having him around obviously, but she also wants to be in charge so she really flexes that power muscle a lot. I mean she IS A Mary Sue after all
