Is there anything Rahim Brazil cannot do? In the past we have referred to him as a jack of all trades, and that still holds true. Well now our favorite Web Star has made his directorial debut with a web series written and directed by him alone!

Twisted tells the story of a group of men and women whose lives become entangled–for better or worse–via their interactions through a local counseling center.

The series explores not only the process of getting help, but learning about your true self, all against the backdrop of danger and twists so unreal you will swear you are on a roller coaster! Besides the quality of the work and writing, the cast itself really sells the series. Most of them are brand new to the world of web series, but you will recognize the familiar face of Chris June (About Him: Revolution, Blackville, Raising Eli). Nevertheless, we can assure you overall their acting is on point!

Rahim is a friend to the site so are more than happy to share the official trailer for Twisted with you. We allways knew he was destined for greatness and big things. We are even more excited to let you know the series will premiere  via YouTube on Wednesday, November 15th with screenings scheduled for Birmingham, Atlanta, and Memphis!

What do you guys think of the trailer for Twisted? Is it as hot as Rahim is sexy? Let us know in the comments’ section below!

Indie Director, Alex Jante Announces 2nd Season of Hit Web Series, & Announces Multiple Spinoffs!

It looks like Marvel, DC, and The CW are not the only productions with an entire “universe” of interconnected series. Atlanta-based director, Alex Jante, has released a second season for his popular web series, “The Unanointed” (2017), which as you recalled focused on a fictional world where vampirism was spread like an STD.

The victims contracted “VIC” and grew glowing eyes, fangs, and became hyperactive at night. The characters sought to find love, their place in the world, and deal with a murderer. Now, “The Unanointed” is spinning off into multiple other series set in the same world but with even more dynamic characters in “The Ordinary” and “The Enslaved!”

Now, “The Unanointed” is spinning off into multiple other series set in the same world but with even more dynamic characters in “The Ordinary” and “The Enslaved!”

It has been quite some time since we discussed web series, but we do still love them AND we love vampire lore. These series will definitely incorporating that albeit with some real world anchors that deal with the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The discrimination and stigma of the disease is still prevalent, as showcased with VIC in the world all of the series are set in. We do not know for sure what “The Ordinary” and “Enslaved” are completely about but we do have the casts for each series:

the enslaved web series cast

We have to say these are quite the casts, and this is quite the undertaking! We know most of the cast. One in particular is our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning, another is family, others are friends and colleagues, and still others we know in passing. Regardless, this is monumental. Thus far only Jante Productions and AConnectionTV boast a “universe” of series in the Web World. We will keep you posted as more about “The Unanointed Universe” becomes available! Congrats to everyone involved!

[FIRST LOOK/TEASER TRAILER] Javontae Brownlee (@JavontaeBrownle1) & Lamar Daric Star in “Red Skin” Season 2!

Just when we thought we had seen the last of Red Skin, Arthouse TV pulls one over on us and gives us a first look at a long awaited second season of the critically acclaimed, hit web series. However, things are not the same. The couple we knew and loved to hate, Santana (Karras Jordan) and Kaleb (Kevin Glen), are not the center of this new season. In fact, Red Skin has taken the American Horror Story and About Him approach; becoming an anthology series with a different couple, “Cassius” and “Duke,” played by Javontae Brownlee and Lamar Daric.

There is not much we can tell you about the teaser trailer Arthouse released, but we can tell there is tension between Cassius and Duke. The caption on the poster reads, “Two tortured souls. One tortured love.” Also, those long “over it” and “I’m tired” expressions on their faces do not paint the picture of a loving relationship to be envied.

We would definitely have liked to seen how things played out with Santana and Kaleb a little more, but we have been watching Javontae’s acting in various web series and feel it is time he have a leading role. The second season of Red Skin, is set to debut this summer and we are looking forward to angst, passion, grit, and drama, as we learn yet again how two people so in love, can hate each other just as equally.

(l-r) Maximillian Morten, Anthony Bawn, & Robert Love as “Bretton,” “Angel,” and “Chase,” respectively in “Conframa”

“Conframa,” as explained by Anthony, is a portmanteau of confusion and drama, as became the title of the series when his uncle, mentioned it in regards to a situation he was going through at the time. Indeed, the story line is peppered with a little confusion and drama, as it the gay love triangle you have heard of, but never seen played out. The series has a beautiful cast (We’re serious!) and definitely keeps us on our toes thanks to the humor and antics. We were privy to the first two episodes of the series and can tell you it is definitely worth watching, beautifully filmed and well-acted. However, the series leaves us wanting to see more of the build up and what happens between our “throuple” (three-way couple) when the door closes. You can check out Conframa for yourself by clicking here and subscribing to Bawn TV!

Grade: B+

What We Liked

conframa here tv

-The cinematography was perfect. Lighting, editing, and sound are principles of any type of filmmaking and this series nailed it.

-The chemistry between the actors is believable and at times comical. Wordplay is the name of the game in Conframa prepare yourself for it.

-Seeing Anthony Bawn back on screen. He is an amazing director, but we forget he is also a good actor.

-New Web Series actors-We love all our Web Stars, but seeing new faces–especially from Los Angeles–just made the Web World a little larger.

 

What We Loved

-The story line- You always here stories of couples bringing a third person into their relationship, but you never really see how or why it is played out.

-Maximillian Morten you rock! It’s not easy to pull off sexual frustration in a scene, but crawling from that bed to the bathroom was cinematic gold!

-Alexandra McGaughey as “Keisha!” Keisha might as well be the Tiffany Haddish of this series. Every scene with her was nothing short of hilarious. She is easily the voice/mind of the viewer watching this series.

 

What We Hated

-The lack of love scenes. In a series with this subject matter, a love scene–tastefully done–would have given the series the spice it is lacking. We see the characters discuss the previous night’s events after hooking up, but what made it great? What did it look like when they were all together? What does Chase do for Angel and Bretton that they cannot do together alone?

-The backstory of why Angel and Bretton decided to even have a threesome needs to be discussed and explained more. Seeing a handsome stranger at a party and deciding to take him home out of the blue is a bit offsetting.
