Agoraphobic AlphaDogs Enter Zen Zone With New Spa Services(September 21, 2016)
Agoraphobia is defined as an extreme or irrational fear of crowded spaces or enclosed public areas. So what can an agoraphobic do to earn a living if they can't possibly step foot even one-inch outside of their home? Open a business inside an apartment of course, and bring the world (and money) to them! Created by Schuyler Helford a Los Angeles-based producer, writer and comedic actress (Anger Management, The Middle), the new web series Indoorsy is an original comedy about three agoraphobics who decide to move in together and open a day spa inside their apartment, appropriately called 'spa-partment.'
The order-in lifestyle of today's modern world served as inspiration to create Indoorsy. 'With services like GrubHub, Amazon and Seamless I never have to leave my home,' said Helford. 'I wanted to create a world of characters, who because of extreme circumstances, can't leave their apartment, but are still trying desperately to bring the world to them.'
Helford chose AlphaDogs to complete post-production upon strong recommendation from the late John Fuller, who was the editor on the series. Veteran colorist and Founder/CEO of AlphaDogs Terence Curren, worked one-on-one with Helford to not only set the look and tone of the story, but also troubleshoot problematic scenes including making a practical shower steam effect used in production look more realistic and brightening dimly lit shots. 'I have learned that that color-correction is such a crucial part of setting the tone for the story, especially in comedy,' said Helford. 'Terence worked magic with shots I thought couldn't be fixed. When I sent him examples of how I wanted things to look, he nailed it! Bright primary colors were used to match the broad, wacky comedy of the series. I don't really get how he does it all, but like I said, it's 'magic.'
