Trailer for Eavesdropping Indie The Sound And The Shadow

"I'm not spying! I'm listening." It's hard to not think of The Sound and the Shadow as an indie version of other classic "listening" thrillers like Brian De Palma's Blow Out, or The Conversation, but there's also something original about Justin Paul Miller vision.

The film about an eavestopping shut-in that finds himself unmittingly involved in a missing persons case stars Paul Miller and stars Joseph E. Murray (All My Children), Mary Kate Wiles (Squaresville, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries) and Alex Anfanger (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty)

Reviewing 5 Popular Web Series Based on Books

1. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. A runaway success that sparked a veritable wave of web adaptations of romantic novels and stories, this Emmy-winning series is inventive, romantic, and beautifully executed. Ashley Clements and Daniel Vincent Gordh (particularly the former) handled their iconic Lizzie/Darcy roles with aplomb, and the series pulled a particular coup by casting Mary Kate Wiles as Lydia and reshaping her story as that of a party girl who gets hurt and slowly grows up over the course of the series. The interactions between sisters Lizzie, Lydia, and Jane (Laura Spencer), are warm and real and the highlight of the series along with the slowly-built-up Darcy/Lizzie romance.

The main flaw in the series is that it’s too long – the first 50 episodes chronicle every event that happens in the book, and while book purists might call this praiseworthy, this is a web-series not a BBC adaptation, and

Ben Stiller-Produced “Next Time On Lonny” Arrives On Maker.TV

At its Digital Content Newfronts presentation, Maker Studios' announcements included the debut of a number of new web series and the launch of an off-YouTube platform called Maker.TV. It has now synthesized these two new developments by launching the first three episodes of one of its highest-profile web series, Next Time On Lonny, on Maker.TV. Next Time On Lonny follows its titular hero as he tries to adjust to his new life in Los Angeles. The first few seconds of each episode are presented as a fake reality show called Lonny: Los Angeles. When a narrator begins to preview the next episode of that reality show by uttering the phrase "next time, on Lonny," all hell breaks loose. A number of guest stars will contribute to the chaos, and the first episode includes an appearance from Lizzie Bennet Diaries star Mary Kate Wiles. Next Time On Lonny

Fund This: Impressive Cast, Crew Seeks $45,000 For ‘Muzzled’ Musical

Project Name: Muzzled the Musical Asking For: $45,000 on Kickstarter Amount Raised Thus Far (At Time Of Post): $5,707 Days Remaining In Campaign (At Time Of Post): 36 Description: Muzzled is a musical set in a fanciful and somewhat dark world. As with most musicals, the inhabitants of the Muzzled world are looking for any reason to start singing, and the series' creators have facilitated this desire by turning song into a major plot point.

They are opposed by a ragtag group called the Blackhearts, who must wear titular "muzzle" tattoos that prevent them from singing. Web series fans will find plenty of familiar faces among the cast, including Ashly Burch, Ashley Clements, Mary Kate Wiles, and Jeff Lewis. A first look at this cast is available in the Muzzled

Best of 2013 (Behind the Scenes): The stars of 'The Lizzie Bennet Diaries' on filming the Emmy-winning web series

Best of 2013 (Behind the Scenes): The stars of 'The Lizzie Bennet Diaries' on filming the Emmy-winning web series
It is a truth universally acknowledged… that Jane Austen’s novels will never stop being reimagined, readapted, or reworked. But among the countless parodies, books, and films that are based on Pride and Prejudice, only “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries” managed to make it a web-based, immersive experience. The web series, a modern adaptation co-created by Bernie Su and Hank Green, premiered in 2012 and ended this year after 100 episodes, finishing off a stellar 2013 by winning a Creative Arts Emmy.

At the center of the series were the three — not five, as in the original — Bennet sisters: Jane, Lizzie, and Lydia. Played by Laura Spencer,

Indie Spotlight: YouTube Talent Goes Goth In ‘The Goreys’

Many girls in the millennial generation once went through a 'goth' phase filled with eye shadow and black clothes. A new series featuring a plethora of YouTube talent mocks this stereotype. It's called The Goreys, and it stars Mary Kate Wiles of Lizzie Bennet Diaries fame. The Goreys, created by Justin Coloma, seems to be aiming for a similar audience to Lizzie Bennet and shares many similarities to Bernie Su's hit series beyond their shared leading lady. It also attempts to combine hip, modern lingo with 19th century literature and features a gaggle of female protagonists (including YouTube beauty personality Meghan Rosette) who serve as self-caricatures while throwing around one-liners. Wiles' Tori Gorey delivers the best line of episode one when she says of a date at Red Lobster, "Nothing says romance like a boiled arthropod." “The Goreys combines my passion for interactive storytelling with gothic aesthetics and good old-fashioned laughs,

‘Squaresville’ Panders To Its Fans With Cosplay Episode

Squaresville's second season is rolling along on Big Frame, where it has helped launch a new sub-network aimed at young women. The series' target audience will surely appreciate the latest episode, where the three leads--Mary Kate Wiles, Kylie Sparks, and Austin Rogers--cosplay as the main characters from shows will big Internet fandoms. Even with no context, the episode is sure to please fans of both Squaresville and the chosen fandoms, which include Sherlock, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Adventure Time, and, in a nod to Squaresville's web series status, The Guild (it helps that Wiles and Felicia Day are pretty much the two most popular online video redheads.) Joining those motifs are references to Annie Hall, Daria, Ghost World (which I've always thought of as thematic similar to Squaresville), and, in the episodes most absurd moment, The Joy of Painting.

'Game of Thrones' gets transported to high school: 'Prom Night Is Coming' -- Video

'Game of Thrones' gets transported to high school: 'Prom Night Is Coming' -- Video
Between the constant backstabbing, betrayal, and ever-shifting alliances, Westeros really is a lot like a big, medieval high school. So it was only a matter of time before somebody decided to give Game of Thrones the Carrie Diaries treatment. (Minus the ’80s, plus some really awful excellent wigs.)

In the first episode of the new web series School of Thrones, new girl Dani Targaryen gets a Mean Girls-style introduction to the cliques of Westeros Valley High School. The Starks are cooler-than-thou hipsters in thick-framed glasses; the Lannisters are wannabe rappers, for some reason; the Baratheons are dumb jocks, except

Prom Is Coming In ‘Game Of Thrones’ YouTube Parody ‘School Of Thrones’

Game of Thrones returns on March 31st, but a new series is helping to ease the wait by preemptively bringing viewers to Westeros. Westeros High School, that is. Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Squaresville actress Mary Kate Wiles takes the lead in School of Thrones, a hormone-fueled parody of the popular fantasy series and HBO drama. Like a quirky retelling of Shakespeare, creator Zach Grafton has meticulously modernized every element of the medieval tale and added a few of his own embellishments to keep things interesting. The first episode was released on March 10th to a warm reception, with thousands of subscribers already flocking to the show's YouTube channel. Hardcore Game of Thrones fans may be disappointed by the liberties Grafton has taken with the source material. Instead of being a child-sized whirlwind of pure evil, Joffrey Baratheon is little more than a mere annoyance. His betrothed, Sansa Stark, is transformed
