Singapore’s Viddsee gets social

Singapore-based online short film platform Viddsee is entering web series production with mockumentary Get Social, about a social media startup.

The 20-episode comedy series stars local actors George Young, Oon Shu Ann, Shane Mardjuki and Vanessa Ann Vanderstraaten. They play four twentysomethings who work at a social media marketing agency founded by Young’s character, Leonard Lee, a trust-fund baby who shunned his family’s business to strike out on his own.

Supporting characters include Chua Enlai (Already Famous) as Lee’s business rival and Amy Cheng (Just Follow Law) as a makeup and beauty mogul. Online personalities such as Youtube stars Munah and Hirzi will make special appearances.

“Our web series feature is a response to the appetite for quality, scripted entertainment on the internet, and Get Social is an excellent series to represent our expectations,” said Viddsee co-founder Derek Tan.

Viddsee curates and distributes short films from Asia through a global multi-platform network.
