When producer David Frazer isn’t thinking about how to pull together another successful Riverboats Music Festival, chances are he’s thinking about his new web comedy series.
Launched three weeks ago, onlineshopdotcom is a side project Mr Frazer has been working on for about 12 months with his Sydney-based production company, Full Dress Productions.
‘‘It’s something we do between Riverboats,’’ Mr Frazer said.
‘‘We’ve got a good creative community up here (in Sydney).
‘‘Riverboats is far and away our major project each year, but we find between March and about mid-year there’s a bit of time to do other projects.’’
The first installation of the web series, which includes six episodes of about five minutes each, introduces viewers to the characters Amber and Sam.
"It's a project that was developed by actor and writer Chantelle Jamieson (who plays Sam) and my partner Miriam Glaser (who plays Amber in the series)," Mr Frazer said.
‘‘It’s a series about two girls who run their own online business from their coffee table.’’
He said it was trying to explore the inherent comedy found in employer-employee pair-ups, such as those found in television series such as Black Books and Fawlty Towers.
Mr Frazer has done a lot of film, theatre and TV in the past, but said it was his first foray into made-for-web TV.
‘‘The great thing about filming for web is if you’ve got an idea, you can get it up online easily,’’ he said.
Mr Frazer said the series, filmed in his apartment, was a very hands-on experience
‘‘Being a small team, it’s all-in. I’ve done everything from shooting to working on the website,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s a bit similar to festival work, but on a smaller scale.’’
The team have completed another four episodes, which are in the final stages of production, with another two expected to be shot in the next fortnight.
Plans to take the series abroad are also on the cards.
‘‘We’ve got a bunch of overseas web festivals coming up we’re hoping to apply for,’’ he said.
While setting such goals was important, Mr Frazer said he was really most interested in just getting people to see it.
‘‘Our only objective is we’d love people to watch it,’’ he said.
