Lonely no more

"WHEN the creators of internet video Lonelygirl15 were outed last year, they claimed they were "witnessing the birth of a new art form". Now you can test their claims, with co-creator Miles Beckett and head writer Luke Hyams in conversation at ACMI on Thursday, November 1. If the behind-camera stars aren't your bag, local model Tara Rushton has returned to our shores after starring in the web-based follow-up to Lonely … called KateModern. Rushton is here to star in Melbourne's MIPCOM-winning online serial Forget The Rules, the second series of which launches next month"

Luke Hyams is the head writer for the webseries KateModern.
At age 14, Luke was forceably ejected from school. From ages 15-20, he went on to study film-making at YCTV in Ladbroke Grove London. During his training there, he created numerous shows, including a chart-show format called "Pass the Mic," which earned YCTV its first terrestrial commission from BBC2 in 2000. "In 2001, Luke turned his attention from presenting to writing, his first project ‘The Hidden City’, was an epic drama about young people living on the streets of London. Hallmark Entertainment enjoyed the pilot episode so much they commissioned a further twenty-one episodes which Luke went on to direct. Upon completion of ‘The Hidden City’ Luke began developing a feature script called Dubplate Pressure while simultaneously overseeing a number of commercial projects. Dubplate Pressure eventually became ‘Dubplate Drama’; Channel 4’s critically acclaimed interactive series which allowed viewers to influence the fate of the main characters via multiple platforms."
Prior to joining the KateModern team, Luke had seen Bree on YouTube, and appreciated it for the individual videos, not realizing there was a larger story. He had also read a bit of the press about the Creators on the internet. He was introduced to Miles Beckett through his agent, Josh Varney from Independent (ICM) and got the job shortly thereafter.
Luke is inspired by breaking down boundaries, telling stories people will enjoy, and Jeff Goldsmith's creative screenwriting podcasts. If he wasn't writing, he'd like to create enormous live events or do transcendental meditation. He has two black cats. His grandmother, Margaret Hyams, played the cameo role of Aunt Joan in the KateModern episode Spiders.
