Felicia Day on Jimmy Fallon Show

Most "web series" folks know that Felicia Day is starring in a new Dragon Age web series, but most "regular" people don't know who Felicia Day is, or what Dragon Age is for that matter.

But being on more "mainstream" outlets like Late Night with Jimmy Fallon can definitely help this situation (although I'm not sure what size audience he has truthfully, but it's still VERY COOL).

Felicia has definitely become The Spokesperson for the Web Series Generation and getting her out preaching the gospel of "TV on the web" is greatness for her, and actually for all of us producing online content.

Check it out...

String Theory (Kindle Book)

If you have a Kindle (or the app) definitely check out the new crime novella "String Theory" from "Pink" writer Mike Maden. It's dark and twisted much like the show, and only $0.99 cents!

http://www.amazon.com/String-Theory-ebook/dp/B004HFRLMO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2&s=books&qid=1297906736&sr=8-1

String Theory
Murder. Photography. Nihilism. The Mob. And a little golf--all set in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas. "String Theory" takes a humorous stab at noir fiction. It's a pulpy riff on the death of art, and the art of death. Novella length work of approx. 25k words or 100 printed pages.

Jake Johnson on MTV News

Nice little interview from MTV News with Jake Johnson on working with Ivan Reitman on the recent film "No Strings Attached". Jake is also the star of my latest directed film "Spilt Milk".

For rising comedic star Jake Johnson, who appears alongside Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman in the new romantic comedy "No Strings Attached," his personal highlight from working on the film (in addition to having the best lines in the trailer and many of the killer one-liners in the film as well) was working with legendary director/producer Ivan Reitman.

Read the full article and/or watch the video clip:

Btw, we're still working on distribution for "Spilt Milk" and believe it will be released later this year.

Andrew Sensenig's Budweiser Spot

One of my favorite Super Bowl ads was the Budweiser "Wild West" spot, here's the extended version...



It stars Andew Sensenig as the Bartender. Who is Andrew you dare ask? Well, he's the book author in Ep 25 of PINK...



I'm sure you knew that. :)

Here's a quick behind-the-scenes look at the Bud spot too...



Nice job Andrew!

Improving Indie Economics?

This Forbes article from Sundance is a few weeks old, but worth a look.

From the piece:

“The amount of equity required to finance a film has diminished,” say Steven Beer, a lawyer at Greenberg Traurig who is helping to sell three films at the festival this year including a documentary about A Tribe Called Quest. “The Jobs Creation Act gives filmmakers a federal tax credit for qualified production. Couple that with state incentive programs which can offer up to a 40% return on a per project basis.”

I hadn't heard of the "Jobs Creation Act", or if I had I probably thought about auto workers or other type jobs that have been hit hard in the recent downturn. I'm going to do some investigating to find out more...

Who Am I?

I'm a filmmaker who's produced & directed five feature films including the comedy SPILT MILK (available on iTunes), the new horror/thriller PHOBIA (on iTunes) and the action/thiller KILLING DOWN (which you can buy or rent at pretty much all the usual places).

I also created the Streamy and Webby award-winning web series PINK, which to date has been viewed online around 10 MILLION times at places like YouTube, Hulu, Koldcast and TheWB.com. And speaking of TheWB.com, I also produced and directed an online thriller for them called EXPOSED. It was released summer 2010. And most recently I created a new online sci-fi series called CONTINUUM, which is part of the online indie TV network JTS.tv - Just The Story and NOW available via VOD through indie platform Distrify.

Oh, and I don't shoot weddings. Thanks for asking though.
