Sometimes someone asks you to write a thing, you write the thing, they make the thing, and the thing is amazing.
This is one of those times.
(You may have already guessed that. I kinda foreshadowed pretty hard there.)
InstaMiniSeries is a channel that creates mini episodics exclusively for Instagram. Your attention span shrinking? No problem – each episode of InstaMiniSeries is 15 seconds, Created by Nikki Borges and Amanda de la Nuez, InstaMiniSeries’s first season Silent Brokelyn was featured in the New York Times, and its second season Rota Fortunae made more than one audience member laugh and cry – usually in the same episode.
Which brings us to Season 3: SPARKLE: A Don Quixote Story. Inspired by the classic tale Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes, SPARKLE is the story of a woman named Charlotte on a quest to claim her celebrity status – even if she doesn’t actually do anything celebratory. Spoiler alert: there’s a lot of glitter.
Writing SPARKLE and getting to work with the InstaMiniSeries team was an incredible joy – especially director Nikki, leading actress Amanda, and DP extraordinaire Joshua Sterling Bragg. There’s a new episode released every Tuesday and Thursday -you can check them out at InstaMiniSeries’s page and follow them here.
In the mean time, check out the trailer below. Warning: you may want to wear sunglasses with all the glitter glare.
