(Almost) Legends is an independently produced comedy web series by local & proudly South African production house, Firestorm Production. The 7 episode (or webisode) series tells the story of seven South Africans and how they hope that the 2010 Soccer World Cup (and beyond) will change their lives forever. As they are followed around by a camera crew we are exposed to their interesting and strange ideas and, ultimately, their failures and character flaws. We get a comical & tongue-in-cheek glimpse into the lives of very “normal” South Africans.
The first season starring and written by SA acting talents, Jacques Theron and Quentin Krog and directed by Floyd de Vaal has been really well received on YouTube. The theme song “Know Your Bones” was enthusiastically sponsored by SA rock band aKING.
