The Maine-produced webseries ‘Ragged Isle’ took home three big awards Tuesday at the Indie Soap awards held in New York City.

The show prevailed in the categories of Best Cinematography (Barry Dodd, Derek Kimball), Best Director (Barry Dodd) and Best Drama Webseries. The Indie Soap Awards is a division of We Love Soaps. The awards honor the best in independent, scripted, serialized programming for the Web. 

"Ragged Isle" was shot entirely in Maine using local actors, musicians and film crew. It tells a dramatic story set on a remote Maine island shrouded in mystery. Creators Barry and Karen Dodd say the show draws inspiration from cult classics that include "The X-Files," "Twin Peaks" and "Dark Shadows."

The cast is 40 actors strong, and more than 20 locations in Maine are featured. Season 1 has 10 episodes and seasons 2 and 3 are set to premiere on the SFN network, beginning in May.
