‘Classic Alice’ Prepares to Tell Its Story

‘Classic Alice’ Prepares to Tell Its Story

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

Produced by Kate Hackett Prod and AntiKaiser, webseries will explore a student’s journey to live life according to classic literature.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BURBANK (January 7, 2014) — Intent on integrating classic literature with the modern world, Kate Hackett Productions and AntiKaiser officially announced on Tuesday the upcoming release of Classic Alice, a vlog-style webseries set at the fictitious New England college, Valeton University. The story centers around title character, Alice, who decides to film a documentary about living life according to classic literature after receiving a bad grade on an essay. Alice will be played by series writer/creator Kate Hackett. Her previous webseries, Kate and Joe Just Want to Have Sex, generated over 230K views on YouTube during 2013. Hackett will be joined by Tony Noto playing Andrew, Alice’s filmmaker friend who helps her document her exploits, and Elise Cantu as Cara, Alice’s roommate.

Hackett explains that, “One of my very earliest passions was reading; I loved falling into books and always wished I could BE there, with the characters, experiencing their worlds. Writing ‘Classic Alice’ lets me play pretend on that level too, so I’m delighted that it’s moving forward and that I get to slip into Alice’s shoes.”

The first season of Classic Alice will be directed by Josh Compton. Compton’s previous directing experience includes the short film The Terrible Thing and the TV pilot Matted. Classic Alice also marks the second project Compton has directed that Hackett has written and starred in. He also produced a finalist entry for the Coca-Cola refreshing filmmaker competition in 2010. Serving the role of cinematographer will be Jared Hoy, who has previous webseries experience on The Guild, The Legend of Neil, and Video Game Reunion. Hackett will also be executive producing the series alongside Aaron Matthew Kaiser, CEO of AntiKaiser. Kaiser is known for his 2004 short film Three Lives, starring Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) as well as producing a finalist entry in the 2009 Doritos® “Crash the Super Bowl” competition.

“I fell in love with this series within just a few pages,” said Kaiser. “The way Kate crafted the script to give a sense of action in a dialogue-driven format really intrigued me. I knew I had to be involved and do what I can to help make this project successful.”

In addition to the episode run, Classic Alice will be incorporating transmedia elements into its presentation. Character accounts on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and more will create additional content to supplement what viewers will watch on screen. This will allow the audience to participate and engage with the material in a broader way than traditional media allows and truly let the character of Alice Rackham into their lives.

Production is currently underway on the six-episode first season with a release date slated for Spring 2014. To receive additional updates, sign up for the Classic Alice mailing list at http://classic-alice.com
