The Double Espresso team are back with a special edition of slicing and dicing modern-day politics and society - this time presented as silent era shorts. If you like a black and white take on the world, Silent Antics is the series for you! In this opening episode, Vincenzo questions the use of bumper sticker politics by US motorists and discovers the truth behind that over-hyped word 'Co-Exist'. Written by Michael Arturo, Featuring Manuel Bermudez and Michael Arturo, Shot on location at Mariachi Square in East Los Angeles.
What exactly is DOUBLE ESPRESSO? This is a Web Series that "caffeinates" contemporary buzzwords and phrases in the form of mini-sodes or espressodes (as we call them). Our mission is not to create another banal and sterile "made for television" web series. We're aiming dangerously higher, demystifying the mass media's mixed messages, satirizing corporate doublespeak, poking holes in political hyperbole and unraveling the common and uncommon usage of every day language. DOUBLE ESPRESSO is the creation of Michael Arturo, a New York born theater professional, who has more than two decades of credits as a playwright, screenwriter, actor, photographer, videographer, producer and now a web series creator. Manuel Bermudez, a graduate of USC film, a filmmaker, actor and stand-up comic, is featured along with Arturo. With Bermudez's stand up comedic talent and Arturo's background in theater, the espressodes are animated in the style of "Curb Your Enthusiasm," Steven Colbert, Woody Allen and the Theater of the Absurd.
