Rodrigo Garcia and Jon Avnet talk about why they decided to make the new series about women on the web.

WIGS is a brand new YouTube channel created by filmmaking masters Jon Avnet (Black SwanFried Green Tomatoes) and Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs, Mother, and Child), that emphasizes female-led web shorts and series. “Each face tells a story” and with over 98 episodes in the can, showcasing the talents of actors as various as Jennifer Garner, Jason Isaacs, Julia Stiles, Michael C. Hall, and Dakota Fanning, it seems pretty certain that WIGS has a little bit of something for everyone. Impressive talent, exciting narrative, new media, and some sexy male eye candy: there’s certainly enough to peak the interest of anybody with seven minutes spare.

  1. nice interview.  i hope that this really takes off.
    is that a picture of stephen over jon avnet’s right shoulder?

  2. Most interesting interview.  I loved the comment that men are boring, so they chose to write women as their leads.  Honestly, the only reason I’ve watched “Jan” is because Stephen Moyer is in it.  However, I’ve been  impressed with these web-based episodes.  I would definitely try another story when “Jan” wraps up.

  3. I’m waiting for “Jan” to wrap before starting another story.  I’m somewhat pressed for time.  But I appreciate the heads up.
