Director Danny Herb Wins Acclaim for Webseries TWO GUYS ONE TRUCK
TWO GUYS ONE TRUCK was conceived by actors Nick Reinhart and Kenton Remmey. The series features the adventures of two guys: the clueless Kenton and his put upon partner Nick, who start their own moving company and the strange situations the two find themselves in while on the job. Reinhart based the comedy on his former gig as a mover back when he was living in New York studying to be an actor.
"I know Nick and Kenton from this bar where we all hang out. When they approached me to direct the first episode and I read their initial script, it was the funniest thing I had come across in a long time and I knew right there in the meeting we had something good," says Danny. "Nick used to be a mover and some of the crazy incidents actually happened to him on the job."
Danny is also an actor and has worked in nearly every capacity on the other side of the camera as well: producer, writer, editor, grip - you name it, but found that his true love is storytelling and he eventually found his way to the director's chair. "After working in the industry for years I realized what I really wanted to do was direct," says Danny. "It was like putting on glasses for the first time, my life was finally clear and just made sense. Acting will always be a love of mine, but it could never compete with what I get out of directing."
To this end, he created Rise Motion Pictures and has directed the Emmy nominated Lishy Lou and Lucky Too for PBS, Session One, a short film soon to be made into a full length feature as well as numerous music videos. He has one feature currently in post-production, Hardcore Hearts and is currently developing a feature script entitled, Listen. TWO GUYS ONE TRUCK was his first foray into directing a web series but he has one in development (working title: Character Class) about a group of adults who still religiously play Dungeons and Dragons and another entitled Bunk Buddies.
TWO GUYS ONE TRUCK was an instant smash on the web and has won The Award of Merit, Special Mention at the Best Shorts Competition 2015, was featured at the 2015 LA Underground Film Festival, the 2015 LA Comedy Film Festival and was just accepted at the Web Series Festival Global. The first episode was funded by Danny, Reinhart and Remmey and the actors created an Indiegogo campaign to help fund the rest. Danny is currently working on a suspenseful short film as well as a second season of Lishy Lou and lucky Too for PBS.
