Tonight on Femslash4Fans Radio we return to the world of Canadian webseries filmmakers, which we visited in February first with Rosemary Rowe (“Seeking Simone”), and then Regan Latimer and Rochelle Dancel (“BJ Fletcher: Private Eye”).  This time we’ll be talking with Jason Leaver, the director/editor/writer/cinematographer . . . yeah, okay, I lost count of how many hats he wears.  Suffice it to say he’s the very busy creator of the series “Out With Dad”, which deals with the familiar “coming out” story by looking at it from two perspectives – daughter Rose (Kate Conway), a high school student coming to grips with her sexuality, as well as the hostile reaction by her best friend Vanessa (Lindsey Middleton), and father Nathan (Will Conlon), a man who has raised his daughter alone since birth and now has to figure out what’s the right way to deal with this.  Coming off an award-winning first season, Season 2 premiered to great excitement in July 2011.  I’ll talk with Jason about what inspired this premise, how challenging it’s been to make a webseries while shouldering much of the workload, whether he expected the critical response which OWD received, and what to expect in the future.
