I created and directed the web series No Strings Attached that will air on ABC 2 and will be distributed internationally by NBC. I worked on No Strings Attached from original concept, through to acquiring International funding for the series, managing a team of 30 staff, researching the content as well as directing all 10 episodes. Innovative and off-beat, No Strings Attached features real-life voice recordings of people relaying their tales of online dating triumph and woe in 5-7 minute vignettes. These recordings are then lip-synced and re-enacted by puppets who dramatize these dates.
