In case you missed it earlier today, I had the pleasure of moderating the 3rd Google+ Hangout for Warner Brothers’ hit sci-fi web series H+: The Digital Series. I had a chance to interview cast members Hannah Herzsprung (Manta), Alexis Denisof (Conall), David Rogers (Kenneth), Caitriona Balfe (Breanna) and Samuel Vauramo (Topi). There are a few spoilers, so if you haven’t already checked out the series, be sure to start watching here.
I had a really fun time shooting this, and I would do it again in a nanosecond! It’s probably one of the most fun things I’ve ever done aside from playing games with friends OFF-camera! Everyone at the shoot was wonderful, from the amazing and hilarity-inducing Wil Wheaton, to all my
arch nemeses fellow players.
In addition to the episode above, the producers also shot an interview with me about… well, me. So here you go:
And here’s the hilarious gag reel that came out a week later:
- Best Hosted (Taped) Web Series – A Comicbook Orange
- Best Host (Taped) – Casey McKinnon, A Comicbook Orange
- Best Writing (Non-Fiction) – Rudy Jahchan, A Comicbook Orange
We’re all really grateful to the voting members of the IAWTV and I’m looking forward to getting all dressed up and attending the ceremony at CES in Las Vegas! For those who followed my dress exploits before the last big award show I received a nomination for, you’ll be happy/sad to find out I already bought a dress this time!
Be sure to check out the full list of nominees. As a Trekkie, I’m happy to see the amazing Jeri Ryan nominated for Best Female Performance (Drama) for her work on Mortal Kombat: Legacy. Similarly, I’m also relieved to see I’m not in the same category as her. ;) Congrats, Jeri, I hope to see you at the ceremony!
I was a guest on TWiT‘s Framerate this week thanks to the suggestion of the show’s wonderful hosts Tom Merritt and Brian Brushwood! We discussed the online video industry, the future of television distribution, and the TV shows and movies we’ve been watching. Thanks to Tom, Brian, and producer Jason Howell for having me on!
In case you missed it, I was on this week’s episode of NSFW on TWiT, where I represented the tiny percentage of ladies on Google+ (not to be confused with the percentage of tiny ladies on Google+ to which I am also a representative).
Check it out and spread the word… Fridays are now for inviting ladies to Google+! It shall be known as “Fem Friday” and we shall end the sausage fest! So say we all!!!

Our ElfQuest fan trailer came out a few weeks ago and the Screen Actors Guild held a red carpet premiere to celebrate its’ release. It was a fun event complete with popcorn and a Q&A with producers Paula Rhodes and Stephanie Thorpe. My friend Kristyn Burtt was also on hand interviewing cast members on the red carpet for Mingle Media. Here’s the interview she did with me:
Thanks to SAG for making our premiere a special new media event. Also, thanks to all the great press we received, the trailer is now listed on IMDb. If you have a moment, be sure to rate it for us!
After producers Paula Rhodes and Stephanie Thorpe showed a teaser at Wondercon last week, we’ve got a lot of great coverage everywhere from io9 to BoingBoing! In fact, Attack of the Show will be doing a segment about it today on G4!!!
I hope you enjoy the above “trailer” we all made with lots of love and respect to the ElfQuest comic series. We had an amazing time making it and would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks to Paula and Stephanie for all their hard work… I still can’t believe Paula made most of those costumes BY HAND!!!
Please share and enjoy! ;)
