Vicent Dooley ... "invent destiny"

The web video, with its developing conventions and aesthetics, hasn't really impressed me so far. Web series have a penchant for going after a particular demographic (like Lonelygirl) with such gusto that the internal references are obtuse and the characters and plots are, well, kind of boring.

More videos are at the YouTube channel for the series.
