The Newfound Project was a collection of videos filmed during the summer of 2006 by a group of close-knit friends. The idea came after Chris Farrell met with Matthew Ingram and Branden Boyd with the concept of a random comedy-based internet show starring them and their friends. With Matts camera in hand, and a group that would call themselves the Newfounders, The Project was created.
Newfound Project included 6 original episodes, as well as a Christmas Special and a Road Trip video. The Newfounders were also responcible for Obnoxiously Gay Man, a one-off skit about a gay superhero, acted out completely with action figures. The original episodes and OGM will be the only things making their way back on to YouTube.
The summer of 2007 marked the beginning of NFP2, but only two episodes were filmed, the last being filmed exactly one year after the original episode. This would be the final Newfound Project film.
Newfounders (Season 2):
Newfound Project Episode 2 (a.k.a. The Windy Episode) was the only actual episode filmed away from Breakwater. In this episode, Newfounders Matt, Chris, Brad, Thomas, Curtis, Colton, Branden, and Tyler all head down to a small area near the water called "Flat Rocks." While away from Breakwater, the guys decide to have a friendly game of Survivor. Newfounder style. This episode was dedicated to a friend, Jennifer Farrell, who had just moved away.
WORTHLESS TRIVIA: This was Tyler Parsons first appearance as a Newfounder. His next appearance would be in the Season finale.
