TV Face is a pulpy, horror webseries directed by Dean Bull and produced by David Britz. 99 Potions and Paradox Opera are the production companies associated with creating the show. It started its broadcast July 23, 2007 of its first episode of the 34-part series. However, before this release, several videos were released that claimed to be underground and banned videos from the 1980s. This left fans wondering if these were indeed legitimate archived videos, or videos concocted by the creators themselves.
TV Face has a rich canon of influences that brings the show its unique flavor. Harkening back to the "Video Nasties" blacklisted by The Video Recordings Act 1984 in the UK, the quirky and driven characters of TV Face search for these lost trashy gems. The characters treat this media with a strange level of reverence and sanctity. The script went through intense dramaturgy to embrace elements of Shakespearean and classical technique, the Suzuki Method style of abstract characterization; all while combining classical western play structure with eastern media sensibilities. The show itself favors bold artistic decisions.
