I get a lot of email and Tweets from creatives (and sometimes not so creatives) looking to get feedback on their projects. The ones that pique my interest grab my attention for different reasons. Today’s “Dear GangStarrGirl” feature is from an production company called Ben Rai Films. They have created a web series entitled, Kiki My Everyday Struggle about a young woman with a boyfriend whom her friends and family don’t like, possibly with good reason but we’ll have to see as the series progresses. Her boyfriend eventually gets locked up and Kiki’s every day struggle begins. She is on a mission to raise the bail money to get her boo out of jail. It’s a web series that has a very reality/documentary type feel to it which adds to the grittiness.
“I did the series, because IÂ wanted to do something from the point of Black female perspective about what she goes through, once [her] man goes to Jail,” says Rachel Benjamin, director/writer.Â “But each episode is a build upon theÂ next. So audiences can stay tuned in.”
Check out episodes one and two below and as always, give your honest feedback. By the way, we critique intelligently so all that web coward talk like “kill yourself” and “this sucks” doesn’t fly here. We build, not destroy so whether you like it or not, be helpful.
