It’s all about peo­ple choos­ing their own ad­ven­ture. — Rachel Forsyth

A NEW in­ter­ac­tive web se­ries is set to put Caloun­dra on the map.

SCRAP, which has now com­menced film­ing, tells the story of a quirky group of peo­ple brought to­gether through dif­fer­ent cir­cum­stances.

Last week Caloun­dra’s Rumba Re­sort was home to the first stages of film­ing.

The Re­sort’s events man­ager Kaileb Gosewinkel said he loves the se­ries is show­cas­ing Caloun­dra.

“It’s an op­por­tu­nity to be a part of some­thing im­por­tant for the Coast,” he said.

“Be­ing a lo­cal busi­ness not many peo­ple know what’s hap­pen­ing on the in­side.

“This will give the com­mu­nity some in­sight into what’s on their doorstep.”

Cre­ator of the se­ries Rachel Forsyth said the show will fol­low the main char­ac­ter Jonathon, who has come to the Coast to study at Univer­sity while liv­ing in a share house.

Ms Forsyth said it will then ex­plore con­tro­ver­sial is­sues af­fect­ing Aus­tralia with view­ers then able to vote on how they’d like to see the se­ries progress.

With the Coast as the main base for the se­ries, Ms Forsyth said she wants the com­mu­nity to be in­volved in set­ting the scene.

“With Home and Away peo­ple travel to ‘Sum­mer Bay’ to see where the show is set,” she said.

“So this se­ries will also have a great tourist el­e­ment.”

Ms Forsyth said she’d love the com­mu­nity to come to­gether and build a show which re­ally rep­re­sents them.

“We’re call­ing out to the com­mu­nity if they want to see film and TV on the Coast then we need to build it to­gether,” she said.

“It’s all about peo­ple choos­ing their own ad­ven­ture.”

The se­ries is aim­ing for the re­lease by De­cem­ber.
