Behind the Scenes

It's hard to remember a time before streaming television was all the rage. But back in 2009, web series was in its infancy. OzGirl was considered a groundbreaking series.

Not only for its innovative mode of distribution but because it was a genuinely interactive show. The audience could interact and communicate with the characters through a custom social network. These interactions would influence the story.
