Back in November 2008 we blogged about one of our very own ServerBeach Developers, Travis Thomsen founder of Dark Design Pictures, a film making company in San Antonio, Texas. In August 2008 he began creating a script about something he knows all too well – Web Hosting… and 1-800-Tech-Support was born.
The web series follows the “interesting” life of tech support workers in the web hosting industry. The series is based on a short film called “The Night Shift” that was created for the National 48 Hour Film Challenge.
Travis, from San Carlos, California now residing in San Antonio, Texas began his independent films in 2002. In his career thus far he has won two awards – his second film, “Joined” won best picture for the 2006 Short Ends Winter Film Festival in San Antonio and his third film, “Don’t Go back to Rays” won 2nd place in the local SA48Hr Film Experience. Travis has also worked on 2 independent feature films as a both director of photography.
