Coming Soon: IRL (The Internet In Real Life)

The past few weeks have been a wonderfully insane rush to film the first episodes of a web series I am creating called IRL. The series is the Internet in real life. I was interested in exploring the way we talk online, and thought there couldn’t be a better challenge for an actor than to justify speaking in that manner to someone’s face. I went into the depths of the Internet, took conversations I couldn’t imagine happening in real life, and set them in face-to-face situations. Get ready for bad Tinder lines, Facebook rants, and YouTube fights brought to life.

We started with Tinder and OKCupid. I had so much fun going through all the Tinder nightmares and OKC fails online. However, the best material came from friends who were gracious enough to share their online dating conversations with me. Thank you Patrick Burns, Piera Von Glahn, and Laura Fries for sharing the very worst/best Tinder and OKC pickup lines!

I’m blown away by the group of people who came together to help make this happen. Inka Mama’s Peruvian Cuisine gave us an incredible location, Chelsea Meyer jumped in to DP for us, Alex Cantatore is joining the gang as our editor, and all these actors took on a ton of material and worked as crew for an overnight shoot:

Ian Cardoni Rose Marie Guess Olivia Hultgren
Anzhelika Kaliss Daniel Krause Daniel Shawn Miller
Danny Ross Nora Rothman Peter Schiavelli
Darcy St. Clair Katey Zouck

We’ll be editing this summer and releasing the first episode soon. Stay tuned! If you want to get ahead of the game, follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
