Brains Season 1, a celebration

Come for the cute take on an apocalyptic world and leave whenever you’re tired of the lackluster cast performance or shaky camera.

Hi there. My name is Bri and this is my 10 year old website, and, in the twist of the century, I want to talk about Brains, my web series that is now in the middle of “airing” its second season. The above quote is from a recent review of season 1, and this blog is not a response to that review, not exactly. Continue reading Brains Season 1, a celebration

Ace and Anxious

wickedgritaaIf you know me, you know that I’m not one for spontaneity. Sure, I’ll occasionally write a new project on a whim and end the week with two short film scripts called “Potato” and “Douchecanoe.” But that’s writing. Writing requires no exterior commitment, and at this point in my life it barely requires any other kind of commitment. It is as natural a process to me as pushing the snooze button on a Saturday. “Five more minutes.” “Three more pages.” Etc. Continue reading Ace and Anxious

Writing Prompts

I’ve discovered that I’m at my best, creatively, when I’m either dared or assigned something. My friend Marshall and I had a conversation about a concept for a scene he had for himself and our other friend Colin, and then the next day I’d written a short film based on that concept. The point is, it’s been like two weeks since I’ve written any new scripts and I’m getting antsy. So I looked up some writing prompts and now I’m going to short-answer them and see if it sparks anything within me. Maybe it will, maybe it won’t, but hey, new blog! And it’s not even about Brains! Go, me. Continue reading Writing Prompts

The Brains Behind Brains, Season 2

IMG_3377 (1)First of all, I cannot believe I got to make a season 2 of my silly zombie web series. Frankly, I can’t believe I got to make a season 1. But I can believe that they are as good as they are because the people I’ll wax poetic about below were involved. This intro serves as a blanket thank you to every single person who has made this dream of mine a reality, from those who donated a buck or two to the IndieGoGo, to the actors, to the crew, and to the people who gave advice and support in my many times of need. Brains exists because of all of you, and I will never get over that. Continue reading The Brains Behind Brains, Season 2

Fan of, Friends with

Screen Shot 2016-04-11 at 10.58.03 AMLast week I tweeted something about how the best part about being an artist is getting to work/ be friends with people you’re a fan of. I tweeted that because I had just seen the episode of Chicago PD my awesome friend Brandon Smalls was a suspect in, plus the play that my other awesome friend Marshall Taylor Thurman had put on with his new theater troupe, The Culprits. So last night, when I watched another awesome friend, Jean Perez, in a theater production at his college, I realized I had more to say. Continue reading Fan of, Friends with

Strangers whooped at my boobs

Ok, so maybe it was just one guy, but still. And it was awesome.

Last night, we had our first ever public screening of the Brains pilot, with The Set NYC, an event-planning service that partners with artists to raise money for charity during different fashion and film events. Our screening was at the Lovecraft, a bar in New York City, along with a few other local filmmakers, and it was, quite honestly, one of the most incredible experiences of my life.
