It’s already pretty sweet that Keloid has conjured up some buzz with the Blerds. Even more amazing is that all of its views have lead to more than a thousand subscriptions to the BTFC channel on Youtube, making us ready to use their studio space! To top off that awesomness, Keloid just won the Best Web Series Award at the 2017 Ocktober Film Fest in Manhattan. What else could be more dope?
As a Web Series, Keloiod thrives off of the hype from a diversity of viewers who are amped to stream stories that are filled with action, sci-fi, Afro-power and drama. It’s a show that continues to grow and form around the “Black Nerd” community, as well as other supporters who enjoy a unique tale with a supernatural plot. Overall, the BTFC is still noticing and appreciating that Keloid is reaching other corners of the media world, including viewers with voice! Extremely proud to connect with professional film buffs, we exchange expertise with the watch-team, Series-ly.
Series-ly is a team of two New York sistas who have a passion for web-based TV.

The duo has joined forces with the BTFC to get the 411 on Keloid! As they’ll be recapping the show, the Keloid stars and creators will be on deck to answer some fantastic questions and cover some behind-the-scenes action. Check out all the scoop on the Series-ly Podcast via SoundCloud, iTunes, Google Play and Stitcher.
