LOVELY LITTLE LOSERS (2015)
Lovely Little Losers combines elements of Shakespeare's Love’s Labour’s Lost with the characters from Nothing Much To Do.
The series is set in a flat in Wellington where four University students decide to impose a set of ridiculously strict flat rules on themselves. These rules are Vegan Fridays, compulsory flat-bonding, 10PM curfew, and the harshest rule of all: no romantic relationships. However, this is a rom-com.
Lovely Little Losers (LLL) is told in vlog format, where the characters both show and tell the audience about their lives, speaking directly to the camera.
The Candle Wasters ran a very successful Kickstarter for LLL where they asked for $4000, a target they reached within two hours. By the end of the 31 days of the Kickstarter they had gained $22,826. The creators spent the latter half of 2014 writing the series; then filmed in February 2015 over three weeks, with a cast and crew of 23.
