Dragon Age Redemption
Almost eleven months ago, my agent @georgeruiz called me and said he’d had a conversation with someone from EA/Bioware about the possibility of working together, but they weren’t sure on what. Thus started the LONG road to today, when I can announce my next project: Dragon Age Redemption. USA Today was nice enough to cover us HERE and in print.  Also, here’s a profile on me as a gamer with a different picture.  What an amazing way to tell the world about my new baby! :)

I have had a TON of opportunities to work with amazing people in the last few years, but my ability to balance something other than The Guild was a real challenge. When I finally reached a place where I felt like I COULD do something else in between seasons, I was very very picky. I never want to go backwards, I always want to challenge myself and the web video space. So, nothing struck a nerve with me until the name “Dragon Age” came up. One of my favorite games, and they would let me write in it? Act in it? Be an ELF in it?! Really?! Um, can we shoot YESTERDAY?!

To pull off a full fantasy world on a web series budget is near impossible. But to do Dragon Age justice, I had to try. I called everyone I knew in my almost decade-long Hollywood career and asked them, “Do you want to work on something cool?” The awesome part of this is that they read the script that I wrote, (After ANOTHER DA playthrough and TONS of hours of research, I even read the novels!) and instead of recommending an assistant or a colleague, they agreed to work on the project themselves. Wow! Peter Winther, who produced a short I acted in years ago, who’s an amazing director and who loves fantasy novels as much as I do, agreed to direct, he got John Bartley, the DP from Lost to agree to do the project. My friend Dan Kaplow who produces United States of Tara came on board to produce with @kimevey and me. Greg Aronowitz, Guild favorite, did the production design and SFX makeup (and designed my outfit), Shawna @trpcic agreed to come do costume design, (we worked together on Dr. Horrible), I contacted Doug Jones on TWITTER and asked him if he would be interested, on and one and on. Down the line, every single crew member pulled all the strings they had to bring a world alive. And Kim and I treated them to a coffee truck every morning in exchange. It was kinda the least we could do, haha.

I will be talking about this project a LOT in the coming months, so I don’t want to talk about too much too soon, but I can tell you that I’ve gotten to work with some of the most amazing people I’ve ever worked with during this process, on the Bioware side and on the filmmaking side. I am the hardest-core fantasy fan there is, so every detail had to be as amazing as we could get it! And the results are turning out to be…well, you’ll see.

We shot 12 days in January, and keeping it under wraps was so incredibly challenging! I look forward to telling you about every aspect, and showing you some amazing episodes full of magic, stunts and…well, quippiness. :) Oh, and I’ll be on Jimmy Fallon to premiere the teaser exclusively, so be sure to spread the word and tune in! I have a beautiful dress I got just for the occasion!!!

    Really, really excited about this. I mostly love Dragon age for the of depth story and the characters. I love how there’s always a 100 shades of grey in the options you’re given in the dialogue. I can point to some problems in the actual gameplay, but the story is so rich.

    I guess the track record of games being turned into movies aren’t so great, but I think you have the talent, credibility, knowledge of the genre and dedication to pull it off. just the fact that Bioware trusted you with their IP… wow!

  • Jim Perry

    Is there a date for the Jimmy Fallon appearance yet? Can’t wait to see more of this!

  • http://radnerd.com RadNerd

    Great news Felicia! The internet will be waiting. Can’t wait to see Dougie too! btw, posted: http://radnerd.com/blog/felicia-day-creates-a-dragon-age-series.html

  • http://www.lisashearin.com Lisa Shearin

    Congratulations, Felicia! It looks amazing, and I CANNOT WAIT to see it!

    Lisa

  • R@100

    I want to see more promo photos :)
    I haven’t played DA yet, but wanted to try it and after this I have to play it :) this will be awesome. And on Jimmy Fallon, great.
    I’m looking forward to read more about this project and then, finall to see it, when is it going to be released? :)

  • http://www.youtube.com/thinktankers Rachel Salin

    This sounds amazing I can not wait to see it! I love everything you have done and you definitely have inspired me to go into the film industry I’m currently at Full Sail University for film and I love every second of it! I hope one day to be lucky enough to work with you, you are truly amazing!

    <3 Rachel

  • http://www.marialima.com Maria Lima

    That is great news! Congrats, Felicia.

  • http://members.cox.net/rlckansas/frontpage.html Robert

    Congratulations! I might not be a gamer, but I’m willing to watch this and I will root for it (and you) to succeed.

  • Perilous

    This sounds very intriguing. I’m a huge fan of DAO.

    It’s a shame they couldn’t find enough money in the budget to actually buy you something decent to wear, though.

  • Kris

    You’ve assembled a crack team, chief.
    And it sounds AWESOME.
    Congrats, and looking forward to it!

  • John W

    How will I be able to see it? Is there any chance it will be available on the xbox 360 like the Guild is?

    • http://www.feliciaday.com Felicia

      Distribution points are being worked out, but we want ask many people to see it as possible!

      • Michael J

        I just watched your interview w/Jimmy and I had to watch the DA trailer twice, it looked so amazing! With the talent you’ve managed to attract to this project, I expect DAR will do very well. I’m especially glad that they let you write it, too. Probably the next best part for an elf outside of being cast in the Hobbit…

  • Milkman

    I have not had time to play DA yet.. I know… i know… :(

    But the question is if i will need to so to follow/understand the story or will this be totally stand alone story set in the DA universe?

  • http://www.flyingislandpress.com Laura Frechette

    You are my inspiration! You are doing all the things that I am attempting to do for myself and when I look at all of your accomplishments I have hope that one day I can also get to that point. As a geektastic fan of DA and yours this combination is a match made in heaven.

    Good luck with all of your future projects, and if you want to pimp out your projects I work with a scifi e-magazine that would love to interview you!

  • http://about.me/AdrianOlives Adrian

    This is a great idea! I haven’t played Dragon Age, but now it seems like a great idea.

  • Neil Myers

    As cool as the gaming and fantasy aspects of all this are, what I’m so impressed by is what a new media mogul you are emerging to be! I’m an engineer and a geek, not an MBA, but it’s your entrepreneurial talents that are really intriguing to me. Your acting, writing and producing talents are well-known, but when is someone going to profile you as the (perhaps reluctant?) CEO that you are?
    No matter what happens in the ongoing media turmoil, you have cemented your place as one of it’s true pioneers.

    Oh, and the outfit is really hot, too.

  • http://aradinsc.blogspot.com/ Steven Cain

    Absolutely cannot wait to see this it looks and sounds beyond amazing! If anyone can bring Dragon Age to the web it would definitely be you Felicia. Can’t wait to hear more about it! All the best on your trip to NYC and your appearance on Jimmy Fallon

  • http://twitter.com/wrenaria Wrenaria

    Congrats, girl! What an awesome project. You make a fabulous elf. Looking forward to seeing the final product. :)

  • Mohammed

    Looking forward to it Felicia!

    Not sure if I would consider DA and ME more sophisticated than BG or Planescape: Torment though, but largely because those were and still are high watermarks for the genre.

  • David R

    This looks totally cool! I haven’t played Dragon Age, but I’m really looking forward to seeing a fantasy story written by and starring you!

  • Kevin Dolley

    Outstanding and congratulations Felicia! Dragon Age is such a rich milieu! Good luck and I’m looking forward to it.

  • Dani

    This is just awesome!
    I haven’t played DA yet, though I was planning to and will do it now, but it just sounds awesome! I’m very excited about all the crew announcements, especially Doug Jones… I can not wait to see what he’s playing in this series! The pic on your gamer profile is fantastic, I’m loving that costume! Really really happy for you all! I’m sure it’s gonna be a huge success!

  • http://jessicajones-1.livejournal.com jessica

    I’m so freaking excited about this! I’m a huge fan of Dragon Age and the Guild.

  • http://Sarahtherebel.wordpress.com SarahTheRebel

    Wow I am excited for the series and for you! I loved the novels (I even went on to get the comics lol) and I can’t wait to see what you do with Ferelden and your characters! Represent for girl gamers!!!

  • http://twitter.com/sanador Sanador

    Nice! I’m an RPG/MMO Bioware / Dragon Age fan here. I checked out the first The Guild Episode on Netflix after seeing this news on twitter. Pretty darn funny, and going to have to stream the reast later. Definitely keeping an eye out for this Dragon Age series.

    And I must say, Felicia makes for one hot elf! :)

  • John W

    Hey when are your “Eureka” episodes going to air? How many eps are you scheduled to be in? When you become the Supreme Exalted Empress of the Interwebs what will be your first proclamation?

  • http://neil.rustedmetal.com Neil Fusillo

    Saw an interview about this on usatoday.com today. Looks like beastly work with the props/sets/costumes, but I’ll be looking forward to seeing how it turns out. Should be a lot of fun.

  • http://www.squidoo.com/the-guild-web-series Cheryl

    Wow!!! This looks AMAZING — I can’t wait to see it!

  • Katy

    This is exciting news! I absolutely love Dragon Age and I have every confidence that you’ve done it justice :) The series sounds like a really fun idea; can’t wait to see it!

  • Markus

    This is brilliant news!! Its really cool that youre managing to focus on the productions you can be truly passionate about rather than just do whatever comes along. I really cannot wait to hear more about the show and finally watch it! I’m sure Bioware will be able to attribute a few extra game and novel sales due to this so it makes sense (but still very cool of them) to back you fully and trust you with the reins on this one.

    I think Hollywood will begin to see how powerful the community spirit amongst those in New Media is. Thanks in advance to all involved!

  • Silfa

    Thanks you to feed our imagination, have a good day^^

  • joseph b

    whoa! very badass.

  • http://www.bittenusagi.blogspot.com BittenUsagi

    Wow Felicia. Seriously this news made my Tuesday (which is saying a lot as my Tuesdays are terrible so overpowering all that suck is hard to do, haha!). I’m so excited and can’t wait to hear more as I’m a fan of yours and a fan of Dragon Age. You’re such an inspiration. Congrats!

  • Firnantok

    I’m really excited! I can’t play the game because my computer is too old but I’m a fantasy geek! Go Felicia! :)

  • http://www.robinhudson.net Robin Hudson (RobinInSeoul)

    Well, what timing! My WoW addiction is finally winding down, no thanks to you, young lady! *wagglesfinger* And now I’ve started Dragon Age: Origins.

    Aslo, I just bought Dragon Age: Origins Ulitimate Edition for my 72-yr-old mother’s birthday – by request! :D *oldladygeeksrock*

    Can’t wait to see this!

  • Heather

    Congrats! I am very happy for you. Can’t wait to read and see more about this project!

  • Peter

    Oh I am so looking forward to this! It’s been a long time since my last Xena fix.

    Had a WTF moment when I read the USA Today article you linked to. At the end there is a section with links to “other articles you might be interested in”. Top of their list? “Final Word: Always wear underwear, especially now”. I think their AI is on the fritz…

  • http://rpgcalledlife.blogspot.com Eleni

    Oh my God I’m so unbelievably excited about this! I love Dragon Age! BioWare is the best. Love, love, love BioWare. You look awesome in the photos, and I can’t wait to see the final product. Congrats!

  • Amanda

    LOVE!!! Just to make sure I understand… Is this going to be a series like The Guild? Or is this in-game footage? :D

  • http://www.deborahshinegarden.com Deb

    Wow, how very exciting! Felicia, you have really pulled together a star cast/crew for this production (yourself included, of course:) ). Dragon Age is such a well thought out fantasy world and one of — if not the best — video game out there. To take such a great world, add an original storyline, A+ cast and some of the best episodic TV producers/directors — I can’t wait to see what you have created!

  • http://livegeekordie.com Colin Principe

    Excellent news Felicia! You’ve proven yourself to be a talented writer and actress, and I think you’ll do justice to the Dragon Age universe.

  • http://dukeofgaming.blogspot.com/ RJones

    Very good news: I’ve been following the #secretproject discussions on Twitter with great interest. I’m also glad to see Bioware putting as much time and energy into the Dragon Age IP as they have. Keep up the good work!

  • G

    Just read about this and through that read you were born in Huntsville! How long did you live there? I lived there at Redstone arsenal base. My favorite place to live as a kid in a military family because of all the shuttle bays, the Space museum and armories. I think we lived there 81 or 82 to 84.

    I love Bioware’s games, you need to play Knights of the Old republic 1 and 2. Sadly I do have Mass effect but not dragon age and my addiction to Halo warrants all the free time I can get from the drawing board.

  • Nikki

    Wow! This is amazing!
    I’m so envious of you being able to work on a project like this!
    I’m a huge fan of the Dragon Age series, so I’m really looking forward to seeing it.

  • Dani

    Sounds pretty awesome..really looking forward to seeing it, do keep us posted on the project please. OH and look me up if you need an extra to play a Dark Spawn…hehe

  • Ben

    Heartiest congratulations from Germany on the unveilings of Dragon Age: Redemtpion and season 5 of The Guild, Felicia!

      Trine approves (+1000)

  • Eijea

    Well isnt this interesting!I actually played Dragon Age before i saw the web series The Guild.It was fantastic both the game and the Guild.Ill be watching this with great interest!

    To those of you who havent played Dragon Age ,it will not disappoint you.Enjoy!

  • http://runolfr.blogspot.com/ Ted C

    I’m totally looking forward to this being released! I’m on my third playthrough of DA:O now (don’t judge me, I’ve only had a decent gaming system since Christmas 2010). I’m suddenly inspired to create a female elf rogue and see if I can get the character appearance to match this picture…

  • http://nannirk.net Marius Krinnan

    This looks awesome!
    Here’s hoping (against hope?) that it will be available worldwide.
    What kind of distribution can we expect? I’d like to recommend bittorrent, via VODO, maybe..
    If it’s free, that is. Also, HD is a must.

  • http://www.thedougjonesexperience.com Helen Chavez

    I hope that we will be able to see the teaser on-line very soon, so I can link to it for non-stateside fans??? Sounds awesome!

  • http://www.calissaleigh.com/write Calissa Leigh

    Wow! I can’t wait. Would love to be able to get an interview about the upcoming series for my blog. :)

  • Sic

    Just saw the Dragon Age teaser on TV.. so much action. Were any elf ears harmed in the filming? Looked like you got pretty close to lopping off your own ear at one point. Nice shoes, very ice skatery.

    Video already up at show’s site:

    My favourite game and my favourite actress in one project? I probably did something REALY good and this is karma. I love You Felicia and I wish this project and You all the best ;)

    I’m really sorry for all mistakes I can do in this comment. English is not my native language :(

    PS. I hope you met with Alistair ;)

  • http://delta-green.com The Man in Black

    The hood is so you don’t have to constantly wear the ears isn’t it?

    Also, I have a theory that elf ears are an erogenous zone and elf women can’t resist it when they are licked, but perhaps that was TMI.

  • Claudia

    Red Headed Elf ! How original ! =D

    (not against red head at all, I just wish I had, maybe my boyfriend would notice me more instead of playing DA Origins and Awakening…)

  • Sarah

    This looks awesome and I’m glad you had such a good time putting this together for all gamers in the world! :)

    If you are married to an Anglophile, annual visits to see plays in London (screw the rent) are as necessary as food and oxygen. And Masterpiece theater is mandatory viewing on Sunday nights.

  • Jared

    I’m really excited for this series, will we be seeing some of the characters we’ve come to know and love from both origins and destiny? I personally would love to see Lieliana, Alistar, and Varric especially in it, and of course the beloved Mabari hound. I know theres not much likely chance they’ll be in it, but it would be pretty badass if they were right?

  • MissDA

    OMG I LOVE u! Ur my fav celebrity! And u also play my fav video game?! AWESOME! U totally deserve this, I can’t see any1 els doing this!

    P.S. Great dying in dr horribles sing a long blog

  • Bill D

    Why is there no website for this yet? No facebook page? They should have started promotion prior to filming.

    Felicia, I saw the trailer, this role is right for you. Elf character you have turned out very well.

  • Nameless

    Good acting and story telling, i am a fan of Dragon age Origins, not so for DA2 mainly because DA2 lack depth and character compare to Origins

    so i was a bit surprise with your Dragon age movies/ series…it bring back the memory of a good fantasy gaming like Baldur’s gate series and never winter nights.

    Hope there will be more fantasy movie on the screen too;-)

    But your effort is a marvelous achievement :)
