FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Bagged & Bored Web Series
Pixel Brain Productions
Louisville filmmaking, comedy, and comic books collide to make the super charged original web series, Bagged and Bored! The first season contains seven hilarious episodes that are free to watch on YouTube with a second season in the works through crowdfunding on Indiegogo!
Bagged and Bored is a live action comedy web series that is filmed in Louisville, Kentucky. It follows the retail misadventures of comic shop owner Kent Carney and his offbeat gang of employees! Their store is called The Destination, which is fitting since it’s always the inevitable destination for absurd conflicts and over-the-top hijinks. Villainous podcasters, shady cosplay contests, underground Pog clubs, and karate obsessed business rivals are just a small sample of the plights that threaten their pop culture paradise. Bagged and Bored is an ongoing story of survival retail, where everyone has issues… both literally and figuratively.
According to Wesley Johnson from Unscripted: An Indie Film Experience, “Each episode oozes charm and pop culture savviness. AUTHENTIC pop culture savviness, unlike some mainstream network shows…” This holds true because everyone who works on Bagged and Bored is a proud geek or nerd in some capacity. Whether it’s in the writing, the editing, or the snappy improv from a hilarious cast, all of the references and parodies are treated with care. This gives the series its own unique language with a strong emphasis on surreal visuals mixed with kinetic storytelling. All of this is achieved on a shoestring budget far from the Hollywood studio system. Despite that fact, the show exceeds expectations with high production value, and genuine humor and charm that display a passion for the material. In fact, Joe Starr, writer for Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers, said it best: “[Bagged and Bored] puts every LA web series about comedians trying to ‘blah blah blah’ to shame.”
The series itself is a labor of love, with the entire first season being funded and produced by Louisville based film crew, Pixel Brain Productions and real life owner of The Destination comic store, Brian Barrow. The second season aims be an even BIGGER labor of love, which means it will cost much more to produce. With plans to bring in more local talent for the next season, Bagged and Bored aims to maximize their visual storytelling efforts while providing opportunities for the Louisville Arts community in the form of actors, comedians, illustrators, musicians, and other various artists. The crowdfunding campaign for season two is on Indiegogo, with a nominal goal of $12,000, which wraps up at the end of April. While everyone in the cast and crew are overwhelmed with the support the campaign has received so far, they greatly appreciate what anyone can spare to make season two a reality!
