from away, a comical and respectful rendering of maine
“From Away” is currently in pre-production but has already sparked the interest of distribution giants Netflix and Hulu. Each episode of “From Away” is a hilarious and thoughtful intimate portrait of different do-it-yourself Mainers at work and at play, told with an unprecedented blend of humor and deep respect. Professions you may think you know -- a lobster fisherman, an organic farmer, a brewer -- are disrobed of stereotype and revealed in a much more personal light. The show’s host, Teagan *me* has had a successful media career, hosting a national TV show on NBC, creating and starring in several big brand ads, and working behind the scenes in a myriad of productions. And yes, in case you were wondering, I was prom king (bet that still stings, doesn’t it, Nick D.?)
But my dream for a long time coming has been to put Maine in the spotlight and finally put New Hampshire and Alaska for that matter in their respective places!!! . I’m launching a Kickstarter campaign TODAY, hoping that fans of Maine and great video content everywhere will jump at the opportunity to be a part of this community-funded project about Maine’s communities. Whereas the series has up until now been a purely self-funded passion project. Contributions of any size can and WILL make a difference
