Random Questions with Amelia!

28 Jul

If you’ve been paying attention than you know we’re right in the middle of posting an interview with  that saucy minx, Amelia Tyler! I’m being mean and holding off a wee bit before posting the concluding piece- but to help tide you over, here’s a set of random questions I posed to her! I posed similar questions to Tara Platt & Yuri Lowenthal in conjunction with my Action Flick Chick interview with them– they went over so well, it’s definitely going to be a regular thing here at NerdLush!

NerdLush Asks~ Interview With a Voice Actress… (part 1!)

20 Jul

Back in the summer of 2008, when I first joined the world of twitter, I somehow became connected to a lovely woman in the UK- Amelia Tyler. Turned out the Amelia was an actress and a bit of a geek. We hit it off swimmingly. For the life of me, I cannot remember what started it but I’m glad it did. In my continuing adventures interviewing interesting people, I thought it’d be fun to touch base with Amelia and learn a thing or two about voice acting. As you’ll read, I opted to focus on that area because I feel like the public has a decent understanding more general acting but perhaps doesn’t know a lot about the more focused area of voice acting. Personally, I have a learned a lot in just the last year as I’ve gotten to know more and more actors and seen some BTS exploring the creation of characters. Definitely a more… demanding(?) style then I had thought. Which makes sense considering that everything the actor has to convey has to be done using just the words you are saying and how you say them. So let’s get some insight into Amelia and this world~ Continue reading

Random Questions with Tara & Yuri!

8 Jul

Recently, I accepted a mission from the Action Chick herself (really… who wouldn’t?) to interview Tara Platt & Yuri Lowenthal, the masterminds behind the webseries, Shelf Life. Of course, I had not heard of the show prior to this so I ran over to youtube to catch up. Which was helpful when I started working out questions- special thanks to Stewart for his suggestions, too! But as a psychologist, I’m a big fan of random questions- I find that you can learn a lot about someone with a bit of randomness. We had quite a few laughs during the interview but these random questions didn’t quite fit my write-up. Too good not to share, so here’s an excerpt from the interview- Continue reading

Out of Limitations Comes Creativity ~ Debbie Allen; or… how media has changed and the triumphs & pitfalls of independent fundraising

An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail. ~ Edwin Land

Some time ago, technology changed and made it so that anyone with a dream and some talent could make a movie- OK, the talent wasn’t always there, but it was if you wanted your work to actually be seen. The technology was readily available, at almost realistic for the average Joe prices, and the ability to get your work out to the masses was relatively simple. Of course, there was still a cost to it, so most people just made simple home movies to share with friends and family about their childs first steps or their wedding or what have you. It was better than the slide presentations my dad used to give, but just barely. Continue reading

Femme Fatales Premiere Coverage… OMG! James Gunn!

23 May

You may recall that last week AFC ran my interview with several of the ladies from Cinemax’s Femme Fatales– as a capper to that interview I was asked to cover the season two premiere. The write-up for that is up on AFC. This would be my first on-site press gig as the interviewer (remember, for Spartacus, I took the photos) and would also be attending the screening and after-party… so I tracked down someone to be my assistant for this event- my friend Phil Xenidis (you might know him better as rock god, Phil X formerly of Powder, currently playing with his band The Drills and with so many other awesome artists). As I laughed with a mutual friend the other day- last year, he was playing with Bon Jovi, now he’s my bitch. Ha! But in all seriousness- I have to give Phil a lot of love for his help. He took some great photos for me and it was great to have a friend to hang out with. Continue reading

Nerdplosion… episode 3

14 May

Not too long ago, I mentioned that Action Chick herself had given me a mission to interview some of the ladies of Femme Fatales. Well, today, the interview went live over at AFC. Excited to see this one go live for many reasons, but mostly because this particular interview actually was the most fun I’d had doing this sort of thing. Chatting with the ladies was awesome. They both had such great things to say- and the stories I got from Madison… HILARIOUS! Even better than that though is the fact that Madison and I are now friends and hopefully she will become a contributor here! Life is crazy sometimes.

So take a read-thru of the article, leave a comment, tweet/facebook it and share it with your friends!

A Mission from the Chick Herself…

29 Apr

A few weeks ago the Action Chick herself emailed me and asked if I would be up for some interviews. I said of course, but there was a minor problem at the time- I was in Monterey at a conference. Continue reading

FanGirl Squee- What would you ask?

21 Apr

In the not-too-distant future, I am going to set up an interview with Lloyd Kaufman. If you don’t know who that is, you should probably cancel your nerd subscription. In any case, I recently met him

Met Lloyd Kaufman and James Gunn at WonderCon 2012 in Anaheim

and have since had some awesome moments in Twitter conversations. So… I will pursue the opportunity to interview Mr. Kaufman. For this site and perhaps AFC.

So… my question is this- what would you ask him? The best questions will be used.
