METHOD is an original comedy series created by Australian writer/actors, Jerome Velinsky and Tawni Bryant and (unfortunately) based loosely on their personal experiences as out of work actors in Melbourne.
The series follows Emma and Ryan; two best friends and two of the worlds
finest actors... except nobody knows it yet.
Em and Ry work every job under the sun to pay the bills, whilst taking the term 'method acting' to a whole new level and never wasting an opportunity to hone their craft; no matter what the consequences may be.
This ambitious, passionate and slightly delusional duo take the audience on a ride through tragic hilarity and anxiety inducing awkwardness in every episode, as they take no prisoners and never take no for an answer.
Underneath Ryan and Emma’s desperate need to book a darn acting job, is a beautiful and eminent story of friendship. The series unforcedly lluminates the adage that “It’s better to be at the bottom with your best friend, than to be alone at the top!”… Either that or “We ride together, we DIE together” It really depends on what day…
Initially being born out of an ambitious Kickstarter campaign (original pitch video below), Method later garnered the attention of Screen Australia, being awarded as a recipient of the Multi-Platform funding initiative in 2017. Method season one recently took out the 'Best of spotlight' award at the prestigious Melbourne WebFest.
Although Method is a show about two actors, it’s definitely not just
for actors and the comedy is universal and accessible. Everyone will be able to relate to these endearing characters, desperately trying to get what they want, yet always finding themselves caught in the most tragically hilarious situations that we have to watch them claw their way out of.
