Maine webseries Ragged Isle wins three national IndieSoap Awards

Maine webseries Ragged Isle wins three national IndieSoap Awards

(Portland, Maine)- The Maine produced webseries Ragged Isle is the big winner at the Indie Soap Awards in New York City, taking home three national awards- Best Cinematography (Barry Dodd, Derek Kimball), Best Director (Barry Dodd), and Best Drama Webseries.

"I'm still shaking. I'm so proud of the whole Ragged Isle team," says Gorham-based director Barry Dodd. "This feels like a crazy dream full of the nicest people in the world. I'll never forget this. Ever."

The Indie Soap Awards, or ISAs is a division of We Love Soaps. The awards honor the very best in independent scripted, serialized programming for the web. The awards ceremony took place February 21 at the New World Stages in New York City. The ISAs are as the Emmys are to television or the Oscars are to movies in the rapidly emerging world of internet webseries.

The national recognition carries much weight with husband and wife duo Barry and Karen L. Dodd of the Entertainment Experiment, which produced the web series purely as a labor of love. The Dodds, along with several members of the cast and crew, traveled to New York City to attend the ISAs, of which they were nominated in seven categories.

Ragged Isle was shot entirely in Maine using Maine actors, musicians and film crew. Ragged Isle is a dramatic story set on a remote Maine island shrouded in mystery. It draws inspiration from such cult classics as The X-Files, Twin Peaks, and the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows. Featuring a cast of over 40 talented local actors and over 20 picturesque Maine locations, Ragged Isle is an ambitious online series. Season One (of three) is comprised of 10 episodes. Seasons two and three are set to premiere later this year on the SFN network, starting in May.
