Adam Goldman, who created The Outs, is back with a new web series called Whatever This is. Like Goldman and his team did last time, they are turning to Kickstarter to raise money for the project. While $165,000 is no tiny budget, it certainly is achievable given the success they had with The Outs and Chanukah Special.
Watch the trailer above, which includes a few familiar faces from the first series and check out the official synopsis below:
Sam and Ari are scraping by working on low or unpaid video production gigs thrown their way by Oscar (Ross Hamman), an existentially grumpy middle-man at a small production company. Making rent is hard enough; they barely have time to sneak toward their personal goals and personal lives in their off-hours.
Lisa is a teacher and therefore unemployed for the summer. A chance encounter puts her on the road to a possible summer job, but she’s not sure where it could lead – or if she’s even qualified.
Whatever this is. asks a tough question: how long are you expected to do work that you hate, for pennies, until it becomes something that you love that pays the rent? Is it even possible?
