NerdLush Asks~ Let’s Make a Movie with Kirsten Vangsness

21 Jun

If you’re new, you won’t know this about me so I’ll just spell it out for you- I love helping independent art get created. I also love movies. And TV, but that’s not important right now. What is important is that today’s NerdLush Asks is devoted to an independent film. Well… and some TV and geek speak. But that’s par for the course around here, right?

Well let’s dig in- Film Noir refers to a period or style of film, that portrayed a “darkness and cynicism that was not seen before“. A harsh view of reality and a disillusionment that was felt by the American people following World War II colored the medium; rejecting the happy go lucky style of propaganda previously produced during this period. Interestingly, though the style has decreased immensely over the years, several modern films fit- Blade Runner being one of the stand-outs along with L.A. Confidential (a more obvious choice to fit the category).

Kill Me, Deadly

Kill Me, Deadly

I am by no means an expert on film or genre- I like what I like. And I like Noir films. There is something beautiful about the simplicity of films from the 1940’s, but the grittiness of Noir films… stunning.

Kirsten VangsnessSo why is this a topic of discussion today? Because one of my favorite actresses is currently creating, producing, starring in, and presenting for funding help a piece of noir. Well, actually it’s a noir spoof. Which, honestly, makes me want to see it even more. I had the opportunity to chat with Kirsten Vangsness (best known for her role on Criminal Minds) about the kickstarter campaign for Kill Me, Deadly. Continue reading

NerdLush Asks~ You really aren’t supposed to stick firecrackers on G. I. Joe

Last year, I had the great fun of doing an interview for Action Flick Chick in preparation for their season 3 release, as well as their IndieGoGo campaign for season 4. And since then, we at NerdLush have stayed in touch with the lovely Tara Platt and Yuri Lowenthal… which gave us the opportunity to snag a quick interview with the duo on the eve of Shelf Life, the series, season 4. Let’s see what’s new with our fav tiny superheroes-

Random Questions with Phil X

I like to ask silly random questions when I’m interviewing people- see my posts with Tara Platt & Yuri Lowenthal and my post with Amelia Tyler. Obviously, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to ask Phil some strange things! Continue reading

Random Questions with Amelia!

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!

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
