New Orleans, LA (October 23, 2013) "The Adventures of Keith Flippen" is premiering on YouTube for the first time since it's successful KickStarter concluded in April of 2013. Filmed over the summer, the six episode run was produced by Zombie and the Brain on a $9,097 budget with a cast and crew size of about 50 members.
The sci-fi serial adventure orbits around didgeridoo playing protagonist Keith Flippen (Jeff Robert) as he travels the cosmos with whacky space ranger Colonel Lance Victory (Ladson Deyne), the brilliant Professor Gunterschnitz (Frank Levy), and their plucky secretary Penelope Goodheart (Rebecca Elizabeth Hollingsworth).
Keith may just be looking for a gig, but the Colonel is focused on one mission: putting a stop to an evil queen's malicious plans. Queen Calamitous (Shelley Johnson Rucker), joined by her second in command Tiny (Matt Standley) and a hoard of zombie minions, seeks the ancient Plaught Device to spread her dominion over the Galactic Empire. Can our heroes stop her? There's only one way to know for sure...
