Funding needed for new season of gay web drama
Touted as Australia’s first gay web drama, the team behind The Horizon are looking for funding for the series’ second season which they hope will lead to the show soon being aired on mainstream television.
The co-creators of The Horizon, Boaz Stark and Adam Jones, have been joined by producer Brian Cobb for the latest instalment of the web series which combines hunky boys with real love stories and edgy situations based on real life in Sydney’s gay scene.
Stark has previously worked on such shows as Packed to the Rafters, Home and Away, Neighbours and Always Greener while one of Cobb’s short films was chosen and screened at the 2012 Cannes film festival in May.
Made in partnership with the ACON, the first season of The Horizon became an international viral success with over two million views.
Stark says the production team will be raising funds through crowd sourcing site Pozible in the hope of bringing new, exciting story lines along with higher production levels for the upcoming season.
“We are crowd funding and aiming for 20k raised through Pozible by the 4th of September 2012.
“Already ACON are on-board for Series 2 and expect more sponsorship, product and branding announcements soon,” he said.
“Also, when The Horizon Series 3 gets on TV you can say, ‘I had a part in getting Australia's first Gay Drama on air!’”
Filming of the second season will commence in Sydney in early September.
