What do you do when no one in their right mind will pay any attention to your podcast? It’s funny, it’s about movies, everyone likes movies right? What’s wrong with people?
Well what else can you do but make a movie out of your struggle for recognition; then, realising you have no money you break the thing down into a series of webisodes in the hope that some funding body will treat you as “new’ or Cross platform or some other type of buzzword that attracts cash like shit attracts flies.
Not satisfied with their role providing semi-frequent film review podcast reviews for Cut & Paste Henry and Aaron have gone down the road of trying to actually make a movie and ended up with the a series of webisodes called Henry & Aaron’s Perfectly Adequate Webisode Series…you never know it might actually be better than adequate. The main point is that the lads have got this webisode series in a competition and you might want to vote for their efforts. The trailer made me laugh so hard I spilled beer all over myself, which was a terrible waste of my breakfast.
You can vote once a day up until November 15
