A Web Series is a three-part short film series project
developed and produced as part of a Jane-Finch.com Web
series pilot in 2008.
The series introduce us to a character named Adam Grant.
Adam Grant is an emotionally troubled Jane-Finch twenty
something secretly selling drugs to undergrad students at
the local university campus as a way of making enough cash
to record the demo album he needs to pursue his dreams of
becoming a famous pop R & B singer.
Uber-sexy hipster Justin Turner is introduced at the
beginning as a gonzo journalist curious to know if any of
the news media's hype about Jane and Finch is true. To do
this, Justin moves into the Jane and Finch area and starts a
video blog about his experiences living in the Jane-Finch
Eager to get actively involved in the community, Justin
befriends Adam's sister, Salisha Grant. Salisha Grant is a
star journalism student at the university and host of her
own popular radio show. Salisha is actively involved in
taking action towards positively transforming the negative
image of Jane and Finch.
Salisha has started a dialogue between students and the
wider Jane-Finch community about a much talked about plan to
re-brand the Jane and Finch area by changing the
neighborhood's name to a more sophisticated-sounding
Justin has his own plans for a way to help Salisha in her
community building efforts; but those are abruptly halted
when Salisha is unexpectedly "arrested" by campus police --
unknowingly questioned in connection with her brother Adam's
drug deal gone disastrously wrong.
