Recently Nelson Leis and Elfina Luk appeared on Vancouver's Urban Rush talk show hosted by Michael Eckford and Fiona Forbes. They spoke about The Jim being honored at the LA Web Fest and their upcoming trip to the Marseilles Web Fest....and why Ryan wasn't aloud on the interview.
Congratulations to The Jim for being honored in five categories at LAWebFest’s 2011 Web Series Festival! Nelson Leis, Ryan Cowie and Elfina Luk were in attendance to receive awards for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in A Comedy Web Series (Nelson Leis), Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series (Jon Morris), and Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series (Nathan Valente).
AND the equally exciting news of the night was being honored with an Official Selection to the Marseille WebFest 2011 to be held in Marseille, France October 14 – 16, 2011.
The Marseille WebFest is the first of it’s kind in Europe to honor and showcase web series from around the world. The sister web series festival to Michael Ajawke Jr.’s LAWebFest, which was held at the Stage 52 Theater in Los Angeles March 25 – 27, 2011, selected 9 web series to join them in France.
Lance is sooooo excited that he's already crafting French themed smoothies: The French Tickler, The Purple Paris Delight, and the nice Nice nectar to name a few.
The Jim's Nelson Carter-Leis, Ryan Cowie and Elfina Y. Luk will be representin' at the LA Web Fest from March 25 to 27. Canadian, American or otherwise, if you're in Los Angeles during that time, come and say hi to us. We'll be at The Stage 52 Theater- 5299 W. Washington Blvd. You'll be able to recognize us by our 'The Jim' t-shirts and our Canadian bred good looks, talent, hilarity, manners and modesty. See ya there!!
The Jim Staff would love The Jim to be open for a Second Season, but due to Jim's lack of fiscal responsibility, the crappy economy, and our awesome expense accounts, we need your help. Even if you can only contribute $10,000, it all helps. Wink wink. Click below!
