KarmaPirate’s Dynamo was named the best foreign web series, and Joe Sofranko and Hope Lauren picked up best actor nods at the Vancouver Web Fest, which concluded Sunday.
Dynamo, from Seattle, outlasted fellow U.S. series Caper from Valley Village and San Francisco’s The Future Starts Here, for the foreign web series crown, as well as productions from France, Singapore, Italy and Spain.
However, Geek & Sundry’s Caper didn’t go home empty-handed: it was named best action/adventure series.
In the acting categories, Joe Sofranko won for best actor for his role in Complete Works, while Hope Lauren earned the best actress trophy for Nasty Habits.
The iThentic and 3 o’clock.tv’s digital series Guidestones: Sunflower Noir (pictured) won for best overall series and best cinematography, and Secret Location’s 10-parter Whatever, Linda was another multiple winner, picking up the best Canadian web series trophy, and also won prizes for best drama and best original score.
Peter Deluise was named best web series director for Parked.
In all, winners in 23 categories were announced at the awards, including the CBC’s Ruby Skye P.I.: The Maltese Puppy earning the best family series trophy and Beanduck Productions’ LARPs: The Series winning the best comedy series prize.
