Callie’s Solo is a semi-autobiographical musical/comedy web series created by Wendy Parman, about a singer and voice teacher in Chicago.  A seed that germinated during the worst of the polar vortex winter a few years back, grew into a script consisting of six episodes. For the past year, Wendy, with the help of Director Eileen Vorbach and Cinematographer Xavier Otten (and a cast of many talented actors and singers) have worked hard at filming the series, (despite minor problems like the changing of the seasons and ya know, surgery. ) They raised money on Indiegogo that sufficed to get them this far, and now they are hosting a fundraiser to complete post-production. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, Randy Casparsan has already been editing Episodes 1 and 2, which, if all goes as planned, will be previewed at the Oct 1st Fundraiser at Lizard’s Liquid Lounge.

The first Episode finds Callie dealing with the ramifications of getting divorced and trying to move on with her life. In Episode 2, we’ll meet her son, Zack, a video gamer, who decided at the last minute to apply for financial aid for college, her friend and confidant Jessica, and some of her “interesting” students.

Here’s a description of the series:

Callie, a singer, who tries to balance her music career with her voice teaching studio, navigates her way through the chaotic Chicago music scene. Newly single, with a son about to leave for college, Callie steps into a fresh start with characteristic klutziness and compassion, dealing with her wannabe singer students, the generational divide between her and her son, and the inevitable karmic fallout from her ex.
