Actor Harry Lloyd hasn't been in the spotlight since he was killed off in Season 1 of the hit series Game of Thrones. In order to regain his crown he turns to social media, where he finds himself followed by the most Supreme Tweeter.
A quirky 3-part web series, with VERY special guests including George R.R. Martin, Maisie Williams and Tamsin Greig.
Co-creators Jayne Hong and Harry Lloyd began developing the script for Supreme Tweeter in the Fall of 2014. There was something about today's frenzied world of social media that was funny, strange and scary. A bit like North Korea. And this led to the story idea of an unusual online relationship.
They teamed up with director/ editor Todd Sandler to help tell this topical and surreal little tale about an actor's quest to achieve celebrity in the digital age. The trio always wanted Supreme Tweeter to be representative of the scatter-brained nature of the Internet, playing through a variety of genres with scattered movie references and viral themes. And the inclusion of cute puppies, of course. It was specifically made for an online platform to try and create a blurred and interesting line between what you're watching and how you're watching it.
The shoot began in London in September 2014 and was put together by a brilliant team of friends and their friends and their friends. Post-production spanned across three cities - London, New York, and Los Angeles.
Harry Lloyd is a British actor who has been acting in supporting roles for over ten years, in things like The Iron Lady, The Theory of Everything and, of course, Game of Thrones. In 2014, he adapted a one-man play about a reclusive man, which he performed in Paris and London. Doing this play made Harry want to write more. And is the reason he sports such a nasty beard in Supreme Tweeter.
Jayne Hong is from Chicago. When she was younger, her father told her that he was going to take her to McDonalds. Instead he drove her to the Grand Canyon. She has worked in entertainment marketing and production for networks, including HBO, HISTORY and XBOX. When she's not coming up with blue sky ideas for web series, she's probably somewhere eating a Happy Meal.
