Web Series is one of my favourite formats nowadays because it´s a great vehicle to find new voices and talent. Here, at Seriesandtv.com I´m trying to do my best to help, so I offer this space to all those webseries creators, producers and actors that may be around to help put the voice out about their shows.
In this one, College Daze, an un-Hollywood representation of what college life and life after college is really like. This monthly drama tackles issues that college students and young adults have to deal with such as relationships, job searching, sex, drugs, alcohol, rape, and much, much more. Not only are problems addressed, but also solutions (a lot coming from a Christian perspective) are presented on how to tackle those problems. This allows for college students who are just “going through the motions” of their college and young adult years an avenue through television and the media to receive help with issues that they may or may not be dealing with.
College Daze premiered in 2006 and last month aired its series finale after five full seasons and a nice share of success: College Daze was submitted and accepted to the Open Student Television Network based in Ohio and aired Seasons 1 & 2 from August 2006-May 2008. Special Guest Stars have included DANSO GORDON (“South of Nowhere”, “Hang Time”), independent gospel recording artist JUBBA, GARY “LIL G” JENKINS (“Madea’s Family Reunion” stage play), AUSTEN PARROS (“South of Nowhere”, “Lincoln Heights”), MAXINE BARNETT-NESBITT (The Skeleton King), ERNEST WADDELL (“One Tree Hill”, “Law & Order: SVU”), COURTNEY GRAY (“Meet the Browns” TV Series), and national gospel recording artist CLAUDE DEUCE.
All 60 episodes of College Daze can be aired at the current website at www.vppresents.com. Reruns also air on the Augusta independent television station WBEK on Mondays at 4 p.m.
My impressions on the show.
It really showed growth from season to season. You can see that the first season was more like students filming an experimenting on the format, and in season five you can see a very established showrunning and esthetics.
You can see some rookie mistakes in the first season and a lower editing and sound quality that all evolved into a very good show, with a message.
If you have never watched College Daze, give it time, watch the first few episodes open minded and give it time to grow in you. You´ll be glad to reach season three, and enjoy very much seasons four and five. It´s a very nice journey to go through and accompany this web series.
