Last November we featured the first two pilot episodes of Love Bytes, which have gone on to have over a million views on Youtube. That’s certainly a good proof of concept and so now the people behind the show have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund more episodes to complete the season.
$12,000 will let them make two more eps and if they can make it to $18,000 there will be three more.
Award-winning queer film-makers and sisters, Tonnette and Victoria Stanford, are the creators behind LOVE BYTES, a fresh, funny and sexy new web series that lays bare the intoxicating world of LGBT dating. Tonnette and Victoria have been collaborating on queer-themed films for over 10 years and they are dedicated to increasing the visibility of the LGBT community on screen.
This ground-breaking new comedy centres on three housemates, Jade, Stacey and Michael. They are the Neapolitan ice cream of sexuality; young, sexy and single, they search for love and excitement in Sydney’s hetero-flexible dating scene only to find humiliation and hilarious misadventure.
‘Herpes of the Lips’, the first pilot, tackles what’s become a digital and universal dilemma: fake profile pictures. The second pilot, ‘Justin Beaver’ explores what happens when a precious family heirloom gets lost in the most intimate of places.
The first two episodes were made with assistance from Metro Screen’s Breaks program and the rest of the season is written and ready to go.
