WEREWOMAN web series reapplying for IPF funding after impressive online response
March 31, 2014 /Kingsberg Studios/ Last year Kingsberg Studios released the teaser for it’s upcoming web series WEREWOMAN and got an overwhelmingly positive online response: over 350,000 YouTube views in just a few months.
With an outstanding cast including TIFF Rising Star Johnathan Sousa (The Animal project), WEREWOMAN creator Kimberly-Sue Murray (The Scarehouse, The Good lie), Amber Goldfarb (Helix, Being Human), Mikaela Davies (Soulpepper Academy), Sarah Booth (The Scarehouse, 30 Vies) and Quebec’s favorite Catherine Bérubé (19-2 Fr. version, Bomb Girls – the movie) this supernatural dramedy explores what it would be like for a man to unexpectedly wake up inside a woman’s body.
The web series follows Patrick, a young man living in an otherwise all female house, who magically transforms into a woman during his roommates' synchronized menstrual cycles. Gender identity and social norms are explored through Patrick’s relationships and fumbled adventures as a man stuck inside a woman’s body.
WEREWOMAN’s creative team and cast is comprised of 8 alumni of Norman Jewison’s prestigious Canadian Film Centre, including Producer Kevin Kincaid (RATTAN, Bernard the Magician), Director Chris Agoston (Crawlspace, Love, Same), writer Surita Parmar (Minus Lara, How To Create a Killer), Editor Richard Mandin (Frost, A Trip To The Island), as well as actors Kimberly-Sue Murray, Amber Goldfarb, Johnathan Sousa, and Matthew G. Brown (Instant Star, The Kennedys). Their creative collaboration was initiated while attending the CFC in 2011-2012.
WEREWOMAN has reapplied to the Independent Production Fund after the incredible online response it received. Producers Kimberly-Sue Murray, Kevin Kincaid, and associate producer Amber Goldfarb are confident that the web series will see the light of day this time around. They would like to encourage their fans and viewers to SHARE, LIKE and COMMENT to ensure its success. A new 3 minute HD version of the teaser is now available online. They were asked to provide a shorter version for the application process; therefore the original full-length version is not available at this time.
