Set in New York City, this Gotham-nominated digital series follow Willa (Kati Rediger), a daffy, lesbian yogi and Harry (Ashley Springer), a jaded children’s party magician. A Vimeo Staff Pick, the series has played at the Los Angeles Film Festival and Raindance (Best International Web Series) among others. It’s also been featured on Indiewire, The Huffington Post, AfterEllen and Decider.
Kati and her then fiancée, now husband, Ashley Springer, wanted to make a short film that showcased Ashley’s magic abilities. (Ashley has acted in a bunch of indies as an adult, but as a kid he was a straight-up magician prodigy.) They had a script for a five-minute short that centered on a magic trick in a bar, but weren’t sure how to go about making it.
Producer / Director Anna Kerrigan:
“But the more we talked, the more I realized that all of us were hungering for something meatier–me for a substantial opportunity to develop a story, and the two of them for roles they could sink their teeth into. I suggested we scrap the short and produce something bigger together: a web series.”
“For whatever reason, I never even considered making a feature.”
“We created a show called The Impossibilities, which follows the misadventures of a jaded children’s party magician and a daffy lesbian yogi. I wrote and directed while the three of us produced together. We worked with an incredible group of actors and crew over the course of a thirteen day shoot in New York last October, and split post-production between Los Angeles and Brooklyn. The process has been challenging and inspirational. We hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed putting it together!”
