Walter Wants a Woman’s second season heads to the LA WebFest, along with the creators and lead actress.
AUCKLAND, Monday, 23 February – After winning ‘Outstanding Comedy’ last year, the second season of Kiwi webseries 'Walter Wants a Woman' has been selected to screen at the Los Angeles Web Festival. LA WebFest was the first festival for web-series in the world and the team (Rachel Choy, Jeremy Garland & Callum Butcher) are honoured to be involved in the 4 day festival. The festival takes place from the 2nd- 5th April, 2015 and three episodes will be screened.
Rachel Choy, Jeremy Garland and the lead actress Rebecca McFadzien will be attending the festival in Los Angeles. Rachel and Rebecca have been invited to speak on a panel named ‘WOMEN WARRIORS OF THE WEB SERIES WORLD’ which will take place on the 2nd of April.
The lead actor Callum Butcher has been recognised with the nomination ‘Outstanding Actor in a Comedy’.
'Walter Wants a Woman' is a web-series consisting of vlogs and dates. The first series stars Walter (Callum Butcher), an almost-30-year-old who has decided to start something he thinks he’ll be quite good at: dating. The second season follows Walter as he embarks on a relationship with Gertie (Rebecca McFadzien) and the ups and downs of having a girlfriend. Full of awkward tension, and plenty of cringeworthy moments, it's a raw and hilarious comedy.
'Walter Wants a Woman' has had over 20,000 views on YouTube and the numbers keep growing. This project is close to zero-budget and a complete labour of love, with the aim to make people laugh. To see what all the fuss is about, Walter's YouTube is here: www.youtube.com/waltzmyheart
