Cap South

Greetings, Web Series Today!  This is Rob Raffety, creator of the comedic web series, Cap South!  I'm a new guest blogger for the site, and I'm looking forward to contributing to the already lively discussion of the forum.

Of course, I'm happy to share my experience in producing Cap South, a project that consumed a great deal of my life this past spring and summer.  But as a fan of web series more broadly, I'm also eager to post links and reviews in an effort to spark discussion of other web projects of interest.  For those of you who haven't heard of Cap South, think West Wing meets Workaholics.  The show includes 11 episodes (typically ~5-7 min per episode) and dozens of ancillary videos - attack ads & crazy constituent phone calls - to supplement the overarching narrative.  All of these videos were released over the course of five weeks spanning July and August 2013.

Thus far, the project has been very well received by fans, critics, and the press.  Most recently, Cap South was named an Official Selection of ATLWebFest.

I invite you to check out the full project via a compilation playlist on the Official YouTube Channel - nearly 2 hours of content in total.  I welcome any and all feedback on Cap South, as well as questions about any aspect of the show.  In the coming weeks, I'll blog about some of the lessons I learned through the writing and production process - what "worked" and what didn't - and how I'm hoping to build on the project in the future.

In the mean time, aside from any thoughts, comments, criticism or praise you have for Cap South, I'd love to hear more about your favorite comedy shows on the web.  There's never been a better time to be a fan and creator of online video entertainment!

  1. Typically we do not use # hashtags as tags/labels on Blogger. This is not Twitter and you can use full work phrases including spaces. For example "Web series" is correct and #webseries just creates clutter and will not be listed via our tag/category system.

    If a specific hashtag is being used in association with a World event that is about the only time a hashtag actually becomes relevant.
