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 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.” With humor being one of the best antidotes for the soul, Helford hopes that audiences will experience the gift of laugher while watching Indoorsy and perhaps learn a little about turning adversity into something positive. “I would definitely recommend AlphaDogs to my friends and colleagues. The whole team provided a seamless process. It’s difficult to find a post-production company that puts as much care into a project as you have for yourself. AlphaDogs works with you to ensure you get what you came for.”
