Filmmaker Daniel "Blair Witch Project(s)" Myrick unveils his latest projec, called "The Strand" debuts today online at www.strandvenice.com. Why does LAist care?Well, these webisodes center around characters living at Venice Beach where, as the press kit tells us, "the debris meets the sea"...and it can't suck as bad as "Fat Actress," which also takes place in Los Angeles and we watch that, too. Why do all the out-of-town filmmakers set their stories at the beach, usually in Venice?
We'll be content to just absorb each new compelling storyline as it unspools in our Real Player window. We just pray the story doesn't revolve around three frisky roomates sharing an apartment upstairs from a horny landlady and her prudish husband. That would be too, too uncanny.
