Haven’t you always secretly wanted to see Lara Croft and Nathan Drake get together?? Well I helped make it happen! Loved being asked by the insanely talented Woody Tondorf to play LARA CROFT (british accent and all) in his awesome series Dr. 1Up on Machinima Prime. Had so much fun shooting with the gang last year (and directed by the brilliant Yuri Baranovsky). Watch the whole series — it’s hilarious! Fingers crossed for a season 2. x
Excited to announce that Season 2 of our scifi webseries CONTINUUM has just launched exclusively on JTS.TV! Don’t mistake this webseries for the Syfy TV series (which I also love), but rather this is a kickass scifi story mad for the web, set on a space ship starring Melanie Merkosky, Brad Hawkins and myself as the voice of the malevolent computer. Blake Calhoun, writer/ director of award winning series Pink (amongst other projects), wrote and directed Continuum and financed the visually spectacular show on a very indie budget. Season 1 is available to watch on YouTube and JTS is offering a free month subscription in celebration of our new season.
Tubefilter also just published a great review of the new season and we had a chance to do a Google Hangout with the owner of JTS.
For those of you who follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you know that I’ve been shooting a show in Salt Lake City on and off for the past 6 months… where I where some pretty outrageous bouffant hair styles! Well, it’s a TV series called GRANITE FLATS and it’s about to premiere! Here is a teaser:
GRANITE FLATS is BYUtv’s first foray into scripted content. It’s a family drama set in the early 60′s in a small town in Colorado…with a Cold War twist (one reviewer called it X-Files meets Wonder Years). I play June Sanders, the wife of the town Sheriff (played by Richard Gunn — who some of you may remember from DARK ANGEL) and the mother of one of the main children in the story (played by Charlie Plummer of BOARDWALK EMPIRE). It’s not a religious show, even if BYU is; the network and the producers at Vineyard Productions and EP/ Director Scott Swofford just wanted to fill the void of family friendly programming and create a series that would appeal both to adults and to children (the three main children in the story team together to play detectives). I think they and the writing team (out of NYC) have done an amazing job!
Please check it out starting this Sunday at 5pm PST / 8pm EST (pilot and 2nd episode playing back to back)- on Direct TV 374, Dish network 9403, local channel 7 in Utah or at BYUtv. We shot 8 episodes for Season 1 and the cast, crew and producers could not have been more fantastic. (And a big thanks to Dori Zuckerman for casting me).
