Part Time Heroes

A brother and a sister are destined to save the realm. But being a hero is tough, and they’re pretty shit at it, so they fight a lot, mostly among themselves…

Part Time Heroes follows Trip and Carah, a brother and sister duo, as they pursue a quest to save the realm from the evil queen. They face epic battles, clash with dragons, brave arcane explosions and fight huge armies just like in Lord of the Rings… but… we only ever hear about it. In fact, Part Time Heroes is the bits between the action. The bits where our siblings test magical items (on each other), talk about their sexuality, rage against the patriarchy, write love letters, crash tackle wizards, flirt with princes, reveal their fears, celebrate being bloody awesome, and reveal the real qualities that make a hero well… a hero.

It’s Game Of Thrones meets Gilmore Girls, on a teeeny budget by comparison. We get the fun of seeing what happens after the “camera” stops rolling and explore the relationship ups and downs of these two would-be warriors.

PART TIME HEROES is a new webseries in development. We were selected as one of five projects to pitch in Melbourne for Screen Australia’s inaugural Pitcher Perfect event at VidCon2019, and are currently developing the series. Scripts are written, a teaser has been made for collateral during further pitching for funding.
