Secret Cinema

This post is not about a web series. But before you read any further you have to promise me that you won't tell anyone about this! Promise? OK.

I want to let you in a secret. It's called Secret Cinema and is a monthly gathering of all that love challenging and groundbreaking cinema, screening mystery films in extraordinary locations.
They screen well-known movies at exceptional places and turn the cinema experience into a theatrical experience by letting viewers participate. Watch this video about the screening of One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest in an asylum to get an idea: 

Secret audience. Secret locations. Secret worlds.
If you want to find out more about it, visit:
But whisper only amongst yourselves. Keep the motion. Tell-no one! 

Oh, and Secret Cinema has just announced a mysterious new theatrical food experience: Secret Restaurant. Diners will find themselves in a theatrical world of food, music and mystery. The menu will be kept secret until the final moment. Somewhere in the city, you will find Secret Restaurant...
If you find it before me, please do let me know. Discretely of course!

Orange Juice in Bishops garden

Growing up in the 90s was all about grunge fashion, techno raves, and Tamagotchis. Do you miss the 90s?
Orange Juice in Bishops Garden is Melrose Place meets Beverly Hills and is not only worth a look when you have grown up in the 90s. 

Season 1 (Summer of '94), Episode 1. See where it all begins...
It's the start of the summer of 1994, and Kris prods best friend Sarah to finally make a move on her long-time crush Jake (before Maggie does it instead). Meanwhile Beth finds herself in a different love triangle with her best friend Rox and the older bike messenger: Adrian. After a trip to the liquor store (where the owner couple puts their 8 y.o. behind the counter), the gang all meets up in Bishop's Garden, where the fun really starts. But more fun means more drama...

The show has been viewed in over 136 countries, with creator Otessa Ghadar winning a number of awards during its short two-year run. The show even garnered a strong lesbian and gay following thanks to its open-minded character

Fred gets Animated

Do you remember YouTube sensation Fred? If not, here is a little reminder:

Well, high-pitched and hyperactive Fred Figglehorn got animated and his show premiered last week. The web series is called  It’s Fred’s and has been developed and written by Kate Boutilier and Eryk Casemiro. They were the showrunners on the classic cartoon programs The Rugrats and The Wild Thornberries and have a keen sense of how to tell stories with wacky human forms that embark on fanciful and realistic adventures in unrealistic and creative ways.

The Collective Digital Studio produced nine episodes so far. The first episode "Fred Gets Adopted" features Fred's familiar face in cartooned form scheming for the affection of his classmate Judy. Check it out:

New episodes debut each Thursday on Fred's YouTube channel:
