Comic-Con 2011: The Guild’s Felicia Day teams with BioWare, Independence Day’s Peter Winther, Lost’s John Bartley, more to discuss what gamers can expect from online show
Who was there: The Guild’s Felicia Day is joined by Dragon Age: Redemption actor Doug Jones (Hellboy), director Peter Winther (Independence Day), and executive producer John Bartley (Lost). BioWare executive producer Mark Darrah and writer David Gaider were also on hand.
What they talked about: The panel began with a Dragon Age: Redemption trailer, which is exclusive to the show. It stars Day, who apparently plays a sassy rogue. In the trailer, she is shown running through the woods, which has ample postproduction mist effects. In typical Dragon Age fashion, she is shown meeting a cast of other adventurers, including knights and magicians. They do battle against a host of demons and other beasts, and it appears as if the main villain will be a Kunari warlock. Continue Reading

3 years ago Joss Whedon and his family made Dr.Horrible. It had a very low budget, and it was writen during the writer’s strike. It became a cult webseries and now whedon discusses a sequel in the work.
n a recent interview for the New York Times “Arts Beat” column, Joss Whedon let slip that work is being done on a sequel to Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, saying that “We’ve got several songs near completion and we’ve got a very specific structure.” Whedon said that doing a continuation of his cult webseries is definitely something he “has his heart into,” but it’s all a matter of having enough time:
“We’ve just all got jobs. And it’s not like Neil, Nathan and Felicia ain’t busy either. We get together at Christmas and family occasions, and then play each other our partial songs and go, “Yup, that’s still exactly as it was the last time we played it. We’regreat.” It’s bad.”
What with his work in the upcoming Avengers movie, as well as staying very much involved with the Buffy and Angel comics at Dark Horse, it’s not surprising that he’s feeling the time crunch!
Whedon also joked that the title of the Dr. Horrible sequel would be called “Dr. Horrible and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” but he should know better than to scare us poor Geeks like that.

The Best of Clicker 2010 Awards announced…
…and there were some familiar names among the winners. The Guild took ‘Best Web Comedy (Serial)’ and The Jeff Lewis 5 Minute Comedy Hour took ‘Best Web Comedy (Episodic)’. This is the second year of the Awards and over 200, 000 people voted. I interviewed Patrick Sullivan from Clicker about the awards last week in PinkRaygun. One of the thing that was most pleasing about the Clicker Awards was the number of categories for web content and the range of shows nominated. This bodes well for the future.
The Indie-Intertube Awards 2010
This week also saw the announcement of the nominations for the Indie Intertube Awards. With a huge raft of categories and shows this will likely be the most comprehensive listing this year. The weekly Indie Intertube podcast is always the place to start if you want to know what is happening this week in the the webseries world, and so it’s no surprise that many of the nominated shows are new to me. That is one of the joys of Indie Intertube (apart from Destini and Shadhavar, of course!) – the fact that they have introduced me to so many shows I had never heard of before.
The Shorty Awards
…are also underway, and apart from loving the fact that @TheBloggess is again rocking the ‘government’ vote, there are some interesting nominations and categories. For a start, there are multiple nominations for Felicia Day but under different title, so she does not show up on the ‘Actress’ leader board as yet. Top of the Actress board is Stana Katic, which is great for us Castle fans. Nathan Fillion is also doing well in both the ‘Actor’ and ‘Green’ categories. I’m hoping that Browncoats: Redemption will do well in the charity category – they are 4th so far.
More Awards Coming Up
The Streamys and the new IAWTV Awards will be coming up later in the year, which will be well worth following closely. After all the discussion, changes and community growth over the last 12 months, people will be waiting to see what happens.
