A web series is an unique way to tell a story over a short period of time without having to cram or stretch the material into a specific time limit. The web series format worked perfectly for this particular project. As it says in the title, this series is a video diary. When writing a diary, you don't fill the book in one sitting. You jot down your thoughts and return day after day to add more. Making Mia Morris' Diary in web series format gave it that sense of realism, as if the events were actually unfolding in real-time.

Mia Morris' Diary is the story of a young female college student who decides to make a video diary for her boyfriend, who is overseas. She misses him terribly and making the videos helps her feel at least a little better. The story takes a turn for the supernatural, however, when she discovers there's a vampire near her campus who is threatening the lives of her friends. Now it's up to Mia and a handful of her closest friends to figure out who the vampire is and defeat him before anyone gets hurt, or worse, killed.

Let me start by saying this web series was downright addictive. Once I started, I was hooked and didn't stop until I finished. The story was superbly written and well-thought out. Director/writer/producer/editor Sarah Stephenson shows a promising talent that is not only masterful but also some of the best I've seen created by a relatively new production company.

Skye Fitzpatrick, who portrayed Mia, performed wonderfully. She absolutely sold her character, making Mia relatable and vulnerable, yet strong and persevering. Thomas Bishop was a fantastic choice for Drake. He had that "mystery man" vibe but also could give you an unsettling feeling when you see his ice-cold stare. Applause well-deserved for those two.

Timothy Clark and Sharee Muller were good in their roles but could also use some more coaching in their acting. It almost felt like they were trying a bit too hard to bring their characters to life instead of allowing themselves to become comfortable in their roles. That's okay, though, because that shows dedication and passion, which are two very important traits to have. I look forward to seeing the entire cast again in future projects to see how their individual skills evolve over time.

In conclusion, I do recommend this series highly and applaud everyone involved in the making of Mia Morris' Diary. I give the series a 3.5 out of 4.
