POOR SHAME HERBISON. The fictional UVic student with the unfortunate first name is at the centre of Freshman’s Wharf — the terrific webseries launched this summer by Writing Prof. Maureen Bradley and a production team of students and locals.
The first episode introduces Shame, who arrives in town ready to start school, relieved that “the unfortunate experiment that was my childhood is finally over.” The fast-paced story that unfolds in three- or four-minute episodes may make him reconsider those words.
Freshman’s Wharf was created by Writing student Rachel Warden. Bradley directed the first two shows before Jeremy Lutter, BA ’05, took over for the next two. Check it out on YouTube.
