PROJECT SCHOOLIES

A SIX PART WEB SERIES FEATURING JAY FROM GEORDIE SHORE AND AN UP AND COMING YOUNG CAST FROM NSW AND QLD

Project Schoolies is a branded entertainment digital fiction event to play across YouTube, mobile and social media platforms. Featuring special guest Jay from Geordie Shore and to be promoted on MTV, it gives a realistic look at what really happens when teens finish school and are let loose on the streets and clubs of Surfers Paradise. Following a group of young school leavers as they celebrate the end of their exams in style, our wide-eyed characters will have an authentic schoolies week experience – beach parties, hooking up and throwing up.

Relevant to teens in Australia and beyond, Schoolies tells a rites-of-passage story experienced each year by hundreds of thousands of teens.

Shot on location in Queensland, this online series will run for 6 short form episodes. We take the cast to schoolies 2012 and integrate them into real-life parties, on-the-street shenanigans and much more.

Bongo Operations, who are a youth focused message information service, are sponsoring the series in return for integration of their branding and services into the storyline. Characters will be seen texting questions to the Bongo SMS service, as well as partying at Bongo branded real-life events.

The first teaser trailer recently debuted on YouTube with the first episode to be released Friday the 7th December at 7pm EST – just as the schoolies celebrations end for another year.
