GUESS I’M A GHOST
Last night Diane Egan died. Now she’s a ghost. It sucks. New series out now on Vimeo.
Guess I’m a Ghost is a comedy web series in eight episodes that explores coming to terms with your past mistakes, making amends, and how we both perform ourselves and find out about death through social media, debuting today on Vimeo. Guess I’m a Ghost made its world premiere at DC Webfest and recently won the Silver Award at the Independent Shorts Awards. It was also recently accepted to the Hunter Mountain Film Festival.
Tonally, the series is a mix between High Maintenance and The Good Place. Using both naturalistic and absurd comedy, the show looks to see how we grieve over imperfect people we think we knew, but maybe didn’t at all. Diane…wasn’t the best friend. She liked to bend the truth and look out for number one. After embarrassing herself at a party, she’s killed in a ride-share accident when climbing into the front seat to charge her phone. Then, because of a mistake in the afterlife, she’s sent back to earth and forced to haunt those she could’ve treated a little better, and might owe her an apology themselves.
