McCRACKEN LIVE! NAMED OFFICIAL SELECTION
FOR UPCOMING MARSEILLE WEB FEST 2011
BRIAN BEACOCK AWARDED OUTSTANDING ACTOR IN A MOCKUMENTARY SERIES AT LA WEB FEST
At LA Web Fest (Michael Ajakwe, Founder) on Friday, March 25, McCracken Live!, a new web series created and produced by Brian Beacock and John Yelvington, was named an official selection for the upcoming Marseille Web Fest 2011. In addition, Beacock received an Outstanding Actor in a Mockumentary Series Award for his dual role of Tyler Hanson and Carol Ann McCracken.
Written by Beacock and Yelvington, McCracken Live! features Tyler Hanson and his larger than life alter-ego, Carol Ann McCracken, as they struggle with new found success hosting a do-it-yourself television show. Balancing his broken marriage, meddling mother, detached son, and a frantic team of misfits who seem determined to kill him, Tyler finds out the hard way that renovating his life can be a real drag.
Following its screening on Friday night, McCracken Live! was named one of the top nine by Jean-Michel Albert and Stephane Rizzo, producers and founders of Marseille Web Fest, Europe’s first all all-web series festival. Beacock and Yelvington will be flown to France for the festival, which will take place October 14-16, 2011 in Marseille.
