The Rub (Web Series) Produced by Kenny Beaumont and Directed by Jonathan Davenport.
The Rub is a workplace comedy set in the only legitimate massage parlor in Tampa.
Shot in a pseudo-documentary style, “The Rub” centers around the recently dumped, optimistic and well-meaning Paul Bennet who wants nothing more than to run a successful physical health and wellness spa, but because of a seedy location and unfortunate public image, deals constantly with a lack of real customers and personal success. At the heart of the story are the relationships between Paul and his employees, who have made working at The Rub an escape from some kind of problem in their personal life. We get to know these characters and their relationships with the use of “fly-on-the-wall” POV camera work, “talking head” testimonials, and the occasional flashback B-roll footage; however, the documentary style is merely a storytelling convention with no promise of a fully realized documentary.
