The Fold by Matt Lambert (Director) Matt Lambert, Polly Frost & Ray Sawhill (Writers) (The Fold 03 August 2008 / ) - From Publicity Material: The Fold interweaves stories involving a time-traveling geek with Aspergers Syndrome, an investigation by a Gaming Babes Magazine reporter, a sex-cult guru, a right-wing CEO determined to remake history, and a New Jersey hot tub sales man for whom things mysteriously start to go the right way.

Lambert, Frost, and Sawhill love the webseries form and see it an an exciting new format. The Fold combines some of their favorite influences: the inventive scrappiness of Roger Corman, the straight-to-DVD flamboyance of Takashi Miike, and the tacky seductiveness of Roger Vadim circa "Barbarella".

Cast: Julie Atlas Muz as Jeanne D'Arc / Jake Thomas as Jef garaway / Ampora McLean as Stephanie Blommaert / Karen Grenke as Cindy Garaway / Angela Lovell as Rachel Campaniello / Josh Matthews as Cody Ferguson / Jeremy Lawrence as Avery Ferguson / Stephanie Sellars as Agent Kim Ziegler / Francesco Palladino as Brent (Source: The Fold)
