Online series Henry & Aaron wins Movie Extra Webfest

Henry Inglis and Aaron McCann have won the Movie Extra Webfest competition with their online series Henry & Aaron’s Perfectly Adequate Webisode Series.

The West Australian duo will receive a $50,000 productin budget to make seven webisodes, which will premiere on the Movie Network website and screen on Movie Extra at a later date.

Their project follows a mismatched pair of best friends who host a daily podcast. Henry is an aloof, liberal-minded slob who uses their podcasts as a soap box for his scattered left-wing activism, while Aaron is a hot tempered, obnoxious Irishman who doesn’t know when to shut up. An ex-radio producer discovers their podcasts and is determined to turn the boys into global internet superstars, whether they like it or not.

The Movie Extra Webfest winning entries were chosen from over 100 60-second trailer submissions to the competition’s Facebook page, which attracted 14,843 fans and received more than 95,000 votes since its launch on 30 July 2010.

The winners were selected by a panel including Gyton Grantley, Marc Fennell, Emma Moroney (Movie Network Channels Supervising Producer) and Christopher Berry (Movie Extra Webfest Executive Producer).
