What happens when four quirky twenty-odd-year-olds meet and work in a local social media marketing agency? Disaster, according to a new 20-episode web series, titled ‘Get Social’ launched recently on Asian short films portal Viddsee.

This is the first time anything other than a standalone short film has been made available on the web portal. Going forward, Viddsee is working with content creators to showcase and market their content to users.

Derek Tan, Co-founder, Viddsee, said, “There’s definitely an exciting model there for us to stand side-by-side content creators as a platform, very much like how Chinese platforms like Youku are growing serial programming in China.”

Created and produced by Ervin Han, the mockumentary features local personalities and celebrities like George Young, Oon Shu An, Shane Mardjuki, and Vanessa Ann Vanderstraaten. Han said, “Positioning Get Social on Viddsee is far from just fitting. As a platform focussed on social sharing, Get Social gets to be social, simply with an extended lease on the internet.”

Viewers can also exercise their inner television/film critic, and rate each episode according to camerawork, sound, plot and acting.

Will we see Viddsee take the path employed by Netflix and create its own original series? “Not at the moment,” said Tan, leaving a glimpse of possibility.
