Double Espresso's Silent Antics is a brand-new, six-episode webTV series in glorious Black & White, created by the Double Espresso team. Bringing their trademark blend of wit and warped wisdom, Vincenzo and Emilio return to cut, dice and dissect political and social conventions as only they know how. This bonus series was created specifically to cash-in on the silent movie trend sweeping Hollywood (last year, anyway), so let's not hear it for Silent Antics!
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.
