LOS ANGELES — Daniel AM Rosenberg earned the “Best Directing — Comedy” award from the 12th annual Indie Series Awards for “Cam_Girlfriend,” a web series that follows the misadventures of a Chaturbate broadcaster, portrayed by Lily LaBeau.
The awards took place April 7 at the Colony Theatre in Burbank, Calif., and were hosted by actresses Patrika Darbo and Anna Maria Horsford. The Indie Series Awards celebrate the best in independently produced entertainment created for the web.
The ISAs honor “a genre that emphasizes artistic merit and social impact over corporate profits; however, the overall quality of the nominated shows is comparable to that of most TV sitcoms or dramas. Several past winners went on to partner with traditional television content providers,” noted a rep.
“Cam_Girlfriend” was also nominated for “Best Comedy Series,” “Best Writing — Comedy” for Ethan Cole and Michael Goldlist, “Best Lead Actor — Comedy” for David Keystone and “Best Lead Actress — Comedy” for LaBeau.
“I am honored to receive the award for ‘Best Directing — Comedy’ at this year’s Indie Series Awards,” Rosenberg said. “As a director, you are only as good as your team, and I am especially fortunate to get to work with such a dedicated and talented cast and crew. I also want to thank Chaturbate and The Independent Production Fund; without them there would be no series. We couldn’t ask for more collaborative and supportive partners.”
The series won the “Webseries Canada Spotlight” award from the eighth annual T.O. WebFest last summer; read XBIZ’s coverage of “Cam_Girlfriend” here.
