Only one more episode left!!! I can’t believe how quickly they’re going by. We shot all 5 episodes over 6 nights at The Comic Bug down in Manhattan Beach. We got extremely lucky to have such a great location that was willing to have a camera crew and raggedy actors tramping all over their store, oohing and ahhing over the latest merchandise. They basically had to pry me away from the Doctor Who collectibles because I want an Ood SO FREAKIN MUCH. This episode also brought some well received estrogen into the store in the form of MeganMichelle (Miley Yamamoto) as the new girl hired by Spencer to take a missing employee’s place. We also got an actual superhero! Mike O’Hearn (American Gladiators) has played Superman in the past, but he guest starred this week as MeganMichelle’s hunky boytoy Caleb.

This episode was the first one we shot, and probably my favorite one so far! I really love working with Wes, he’s got such great comic timing and is so fun to banter back and forth with! I promise I don’t hate him as much as my character seems to ;) In this episode, Ben (Wes Robertson) breaks the air conditioning on the hottest day of the year. Hilarity ensues, including a human taun-taun. Working on a show like this always has its challenges. We were shooting in a real comic book store, so in order to accommodate the real customers, we had to shoot entirely at night. Essentially, every episode you see is fueled by Red Bull. The advantage is that we’re in a real freakin comic book store! There’s almost always a decent amount of downtime for the actors as production resets shots or changes camera angles. One […]
Almost 5,000 views on our first episode!! Yay! So glad for all the positive feedback and excited to release the second episode! When one of Spencer’s prize comics goes missing, EVERYONE’S a suspect in this week’s GEEK CRED. Guest starring Parks & Recreation’s JIM O’HEIR. As a huge fan of Parks & Rec, I was so thrilled to work with Jim O’Heir! If for some insane reason you don’t watch that show, you may also recognize him from the Justin Long film “Accepted“! But really, if you’re not watching Parks & Rec, there’s probably something more seriously wrong with you. Jim is really great and funny and it’s so great he came out to work with us!

It’s here! It’s here! The first episode of my newest series GEEK CRED is here! True to my argumentative core, my character CALLIE immediately gets into a battle of wits with fellow comic book store employee BEN (Wes Robertson) over whether Wonder Woman’s costume could be deemed a tactical advantage. I truly loved working on this show and all the scenarios are pretty true to life thanks to writer/director Daniel Beals (playing SPENCER)’s real world experience working at a comic store. You also get to meet Damion Poitier (Jarhead, Avengers) as regular customer JEROME, who really should be working at the store himself. And we’ve already got some writeups! Thanks to all the wonderful people who’ve covered the show so far, hope you continue watching! Adventures in Poor Taste Strawburry17 Defective Geeks […]
Got to film TWO spots for Nissan alongside Ryan Churchill that have just started airing, and they’re up on YouTube for your viewing pleasure. It was the first car commercial I’ve ever done, and we even knew we’d be using Bruno Mars’s ‘Runaway Baby’ in the spots, so we had lots of footage of us singing along. It was also the first time I’ve ever had a stunt driver! We shot both all around downtown LA and then out in the Santa Clarita mountains for those rugged shots. Had such a blast doing them, hope they run allll summer ;) That “snow” we’re standing on is real, by the way. Sort of. They shaved these HUGE blocks of ice right in the middle of downtown Los Angeles to cover the ground. And while it didn’t get shown, we’re in bare feet at times! Nothing like bonding with a co-star […]
