As I have talked about before I am going to use my voice to highlight some great independent projects in film, television, music, etc. I will not just be highlighting African-American produced films but I do want to support quality projects in general. If you are interested in having your project highlighted in this new segment shoot me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this edition of Push and Kick I am lending my hand and pen in support of the web series The Unwritten Rules. I actually highlighted and talk about this web series in the post “Not Feeling What’s On TV?? Check Out These 5 Webisodes”. This show is a very creative show that comes from a satirical direction of displaying of some black experiences in the corporate workplace. The show was created and written by Kim Williams.
They are looking for support to help launch season 2 of the web series. Here are some more details about the show from their Indigogo Campaign:
“the Unwritten Rules” Web Series
When I wrote the book, “40 Hours and Unwritten Rule: The Diary of a Nigger, Negro, Colored, Black, African-American Woman” in 2003, I wanted to create a voice that had been silenced, judged, and disregarded. And eight years later, that voice was resurrected with “the Unwritten Rules”.
“the Unwritten Rules” is a web series based on the book, “40 Hours and Unwritten Rule” (Butterfly Ink Publishing, 2004). The series follows a Black woman’s, Racey Jones, journey in a predominantly white workplace with real situations, truthful thoughts, and honest reactions. With Season 1, the voice was heard globally (ie. US, the UK, Australia, South Africa, the Caribbean) and embraced by Black & White and Young & Old. And for Season 2, we want to speak louder! But we can’t do it without your help.
“the Unwritten Rules” stars Aasha Davis (‘Pariah’, ‘South of Nowhere‘, ‘Friday Night Lights’), Balbinka, Sara Finely, David Lowe, Kayla Ibarra, Ebenzer Quaye, and Antonio Ramirez. The series is Written and Executive Produced by me (Kim Williams). I have 16 years experience in Television and Film Production working as an Associate Producer/Post Supervisor. I’ve also written two novels (butterflyinkpublishing.com), as well as, Co-written and Produced the theatrical play, “Bitch” (bitchtheplay.com). Aasha Davis and Michelle Clay also serve as Producers on the series.
The web series has received an overflow of positive response and has been featured on The Grio.com’s 6 Web Series to Watch List, Sister 2 Sister’s 9 Web Series to Watch List , clutchmagazine.com, The Urban Daily.com, Womanist Musings Blog, Aol.com, and many more.
