Concept trailer about near-future videogame subculture released
(Toronto – March 5, 2014) Haphead, written and created by Toronto-based artist Jim Munroe, was released today in a bid for a share of the over $1.5 M the Independent Production Fund (IPF) will be investing in web series development this year.
"I’m excited about our team’s trajectory. In 2007 we picked up our home cameras and created a scrappy indie film. Today we have a team of professionals at every level resulting in an amazing trailer with production values bar none," said Sean Lerner, long time collaborator of Munroe's and Haphead producer.
Several hundred teams are expected to post trailers online during the month of March. IPF evaluators will analyze the skills and the commitment of producers to undertake long-term plans to attract and maintain their online audiences.
