MAHWAH, N.J. – With six months of focused work behind them, students in Kelly Dolak’s advanced Web Series Production class at Ramapo College are being lauded for Mosaic, an offbeat LGBT five-episode web series that will screen on Saturday, June 29 at the inaugural edition of World Webfest Mania at Vine, a screening space in Brooklyn, New York. A full length trailer may be found on YouTube.

According to Dolak, associate professor of television production, 13 senior Ramapo College students in the fall 2018 Web Series Production class actively conceived the idea, wrote the episodes, filmed, edited and marketed the web series intended to be distributed solely to internet audiences.

“The storyline for Mosaic is about a girl with a strange habit who stumbles on a journey of self-discovery when she meets a girl determined to learn her ways,” said Dolak. “The students wrote the episodes over the summer prior to the start of the class, and then in the fall, they scouted 15 locations, including some in New York City, to film what amounted to 100 pages of writing.”

This is the second time that Dolak’s Web Series Production classes have been invited to screen their work. Last year, another digital production, “Deep End,” was invited to screen at the NJ Webfest.
