Comedy Web Series Gazelle: Le Petit Chien Launched

London, UK

Gazelle: Le Petit Chien’ is a mockumentary web series following French cosmetics inventor Gazelle La France as she attempts to launch her new lipstick, Le Petit Chien in the UK, whilst her step-daughter Samantha suspects all is not as it seems. Inspired by Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone from the BBC’s Absolutely Fabulous and Jill Tyrell of BBC3’s Nighty Night, the titular character Gazelle La France is truly a force to be reckoned with. If he’s not making Samantha’s life a misery she’s verbally attacking or name dropping celebrities, from Victoria Beckham and Madonna, to Dawn French and Vladimir Putin.

Filmed in London, the entire first series has now been released and all three episodes can be accessed from the links below. Bonus content is available on the YouTube channel including a blooper reel. A second series is currently in pre-production and the company, ‘Emergency Room’, will be crowdfunding to make it even bigger than the first series. The first series has also been entered into several international web festivals including Raindance, Marseille Web Fest and Austin Web Fest. It started out as a drunken improv session in which creator and writer Peter Hignett forced his friend, Kelvin Leeds, to don a ginger wig and put on a French accent.

“I never thought it would go this far,” says Peter. “We were essentially two thirty-year-old men playing dress up. But we must have done something right. I pitched the idea and surprisingly it was green-lit. Gazelle was born.”

See Something Wrong? Have A Suggestion?

Though the Beta testing is well in the past, we at Max It are always working to improve the site, keep the gears oiled, and all around tinker to improve the experience for both the indie filmmakers that submit content, as well as the indie film lovers that drop in for their daily fix.

Just like suspicious activity, we ask that if you see something wrong, have a suggestion, or would just like to tell us just what you like or dislike about the site, you let us know.

We've a lot of things still to add (No Peeking Behind The Curtain!), but we want to make sure what is current online is working without issues. To do this each day we'll add more articles, tweak a feature here, remove a feature there. Just to keep things moving along in the right direction.

To let us know of anything, just click on Contact in the Main Menu at the top and give us as detailed a description of the problem, or suggestion and we'll do our best to look to see if and how it can be fixed, or added!

As always, we thank you for your support!
