Hey guys! So quick update, I’ve been doing a lot of housekeeping with my stuff lately, did a whole cleanup sweep of my romance book club Vaginal Fantasy which will hopefully encourage people to watch the livestream and participate on the forums, I’ve been writing a ton on my two secret projects, and I went to Wondercon yesterday to do a panel on all the new Geek and Sundry stuff coming up!

Wil Wheaton and I had a great time bantering about, talking about everything from anime maid trading card games to sperm being warmed by car seats (no bueno boys). We also took time to talk about our IndieGOGO campaign that has raised $650k already, and we’re hoping to go way further to make more episode and an RPG show, so that’s awesome. And we premiered the trailer for Spooked, a 1/2 hour comedy that’s coming out in June, that I’ve been really heavily involved in the last six months, producing and supervising casting and editing and doing some rewriting on it, all that stuff. I’m super proud of it and it comes out in June, click here for the trailer preview and brief article!

It’s funny because I took the last year and a half to really concentrate on getting my company on its feet and helping other people get their shows off the ground, and I know that people are less dazzled by that than my acting. I mean, the conversation usually goes, “Yes, I run a web series company, we’ve done a few dozen shows over two years, we have one coming out that I produced a lot of myself, wrote on and casting and all that, a whole 1/2 hour format on the web!” “Oh.” “I also guest starred on House eight years ago.” “REALLY?! COOL!”

Don’t get me wrong, I love acting and am planning to do more in the future, but working behind the scenes to MAKE those shows happen is so fulfilling as well, and so few women do it in Hollywood, I want to be someone who people can look to as an example, so it’s easy to think of women OR men in the “making stuff happen” roles. If there were more examples out there, maybe there would be more than 8% of directors out there who were women. Who knows? I just know that I do what I enjoy, which is a little of everything!

SO I hope you enjoy when it comes out in June and stay tuned! Lots of cool stuff happening I can’t talk about, but it’s….goood…..

 

  • Katie

    Just wanted to pipe up and say that while I admire your acting chops, I look up to you far more as a creator and producer. You are super inspiring to ladies in the entertainment business, so keep doin’ what you’re doin’!!

    • Maleficatum

      I agree as well. You are a fantastic actress, I mean, c’mon, Vi, Codex, Holly AND CHARLIE (<3) but your creative genius is undeniable!

  • Lisa Pond

    I agree with Katie, 100%. I love your acting work and absolutely look forward to seeing you in more things but it’s your numerous other accomplishments that inspire me. As a woman, it’s nice to see another woman take charge of her own career and make things happen and be successful. If it makes you happy, you absolutely should keep doing it, especially since it’s bringing so many other people joy, too.

  • Beau Ryan

    COOL!

  • Eyeballs

    Linky no worky.

  • Mike

    Nice Post Felicia. Just keep being awesome in all you do. Cheers!

  • Jan

    Isn’t “Spooked” produced by Bryan Singer? Yeah, not going to watch, sorry.

    • darkflame

      Not a fan of The Usual Suspects then?

    • Christine

      I understand why you don’t want to support, or even want to condemn, Bryan Singer.

      BUT, Spooked is also produced by Felicia Day and presented on the Geek & Sundry channel. The success of Spooked will have a greater impact on G & S and its future productions than on Bryan Singer’s career or pocket. (Um..no offense Felicia.)

      SO, please don’t judge Ms. Day and G & S to be “guilty” by association and don’t withdrawal your support for all their endeavors to bring us quality entertainment.

      We the viewers have nothing to lose and everything to gain from Felicia Day and Geek & Sundry’s further success.

  • Audrey

    As a woman not in Hollywood, I think it’s awesome when you’re in front of the camera, or in the writer/producer/everything else role. You’re skilled at all of it. I am just happy to see the things you create, because your style fits my preferences.

  • White Knight

    The moment I heard your voice, I was hooked. And it doesn’t fade, strangely enough. Your laser like focus in counterpoint to your actor opposite is breathtaking-as is your voice. AND you know how to accompany in song. Nice balance. Feminist that can really drill into her feminine side and explore it. I have a crush. My boyhood fantasies of love and ladies comes back in a pristine rush. One of a kind. I DO want to see you once in a while, so don’t give up acting completely-you’re so good at it. Besides, I need the blush of seeing you, like my dream-from afar. BOL. jwl

    Felicia, we’ve been missing you in Salt Lake City! SLC Comic Con is Sept. 4-6. The SLC Comic Con FanX last weekend drew in over 100,000 people. It was the 3rd largest Comic Con in America. Just verified you’re on the guest request list for the upcoming Sept. Comic Con, so no excuses, sister. Come pour some sugar on SLC, Felicia! Oh yeah, good times. See you in Sept!

    Hi. Have a weird project idea. I have been stalking the Convention updates since I never get time to go there. The journey from beyond the Wall is too time consuming. And its one thing that worries me: Why do our people (the geeks) look like they are only 10 years from a deathbed? I know myself that my biological age report was enough to get me sweating in a gym out of pure fear of Nivlheim. And I think there is something seriously wrong with the level system for strength vs stamina and its more boring than any mining I have done. But if it can give me 30-40 more years to play games…. Its worth it.
    But is there any way to encourage our people to take better care of themselves? In a non-douc bag way? Because I HATE personal trainers with their two weekend course knowledge about health issues and their promise about “one month miracles”. It takes years to deal with health issues trough training. But “THE MAN” wont make any money from selling two year training programs…. So is there some way we can beat the system and get focus on our health? Something like Zaboos convention training in the Guild but for real? Like gaming and training? Not sure if this is a good idea, but we have to do something. Its not cool watching pictures from conventions thinking “This guy has only 5-6 years left to live”. Especially since its people with an outstanding personality. But how do you tell someone that they have to change their lifestyle in a polite and convincing way? My opinion is that the change have to come from the inside. As from the geek society. So if GeekandSundry could get the ball rolling in some weird way? Like an geek achievement program?
    Not sure how to do this so I’m just rambling and hoping ms. Day or some other in the G&S staff can make some sense out of my observations. Because we cant continue to ignore the bearowls in the room.

    Can’t wait for this series. And absolutely you deserve a 100 times more credit to what you have done for the web. A real trailblazer – not that there wasn’t plenty of webshows before you, but that you have easily raised the bar for everyone and redefined what webshows can be.

    My only points here is two fold;
    a) 22 minutes is not half hour. 😉 Come on – thats tv’s little lie, lets not bring that over to the web. (of course, its still very significant for a webshow to be even that length)

    b) There was a webshow called BumpsInTheNight;
    http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4610780F9D763AC6
    Similar premise to Spooked. Not saying anyones copying – merely they deserve a shoutout because what they did was great.

      I don’t know if you’ll see this, and that’s okay. I’ll still leave my thoughts.

      I am sure that many people recognize that you made footprints in several hugely known shows, house included, and I’m sure that does get you a lot of praise and recognition on a grand scale more noticeable than the affect you’ve had on people for the behind the scenes work that you’ve done for G&S. That said, when I decided to sit down and start working on the scrapbook that now sits in your home somewhere, I didn’t do it because you appeared in a few episodes of Supernatural, or Dollhouse- one of my favorite shows. I also recall screening quite a few letters that would back up what I am about to say.

      It’s really easy to find someone who brings roles to life in front of the camera. I can think of a number of actors that I admire and respect for their talents and I really enjoy following their careers because of what they can uniquely bring to the table. What isn’t easy, is finding a layered person (especially a woman) in the industry who is capable of doing so many different things to the same degree that you have. What you have done with G&S isn’t something a lot of people have done, and you have done it magnificently. I don’t think I can begin to imagine how many hours a day you put into it, or exactly how much work you have done to see it all come together the way that it has. I have no doubts you’ve experiences challenges and roadblocks that none of us can begin to understand. I also know that I can’t go a day without checking all of the G&S happenings, and when I see new content – I want to challenge myself. I want to do more with my life and find my own creative outlet because of what I see that can be accomplished.

      You inspire people. It’s more than the characters you’ve played. It’s everything about you. It’s your drive to succeed. It’s that you take on new challenges. It’s that you’ve created an entire community of people who will agree that the stuff that you do behind the scenes has changed our lives, and we are forever grateful.

      Keep doing what you do, and keep being magnificent. It matters.

    God, I really hope I can work with you one day..:-)

    I posted this earlier as a reply to someone’s comment instead of a response on it’s own. I am so awesome with the internet. *facepalm*.

    Speaking of more women making things, you’d be happy to hear that at the Atlanta Film Festival 2013, the women directors panel was packed and had the highest attendance for a panel that year! So I think women in the “making things” roles is on the rise for sure. Thanks for being one of my inspirations Felicia!
