Now in South-Sound production: JourneyQuest, a new fantasy web-series from Dead Gentlemen and Zombie Orheus Entertainment.
Just a head’s up, folks: When you search for me, I shall not be here. At least not until next Wednesday. Tonight, I’m heading into the woods to start filming for a new project:
What is JourneyQuest?
A new fantasy web-series from Zombie Orpheus Entertainment and Dead Gentlemen. It’s filming here in the South Puget Sound, with on-site locations near the Coloumbia River, in Tacoma, Seattle, and all sorts of forests inbetween.
What’s it about?
Here’s the blurb from the official JourneyQuest website: Following a group of dysfunctional adventurers on a quest to discover and destroy the mythical Sword of Fighting, JOURNEYQUEST is a comedic adventure through the fantasy world of Fartherall, where intellectual orcs, incompetent wizards, and holy zombies form the living (and not-so-living) backdrop to an epic story of unrequited love, burning passions, and severely reluctant heroism. And running away. Lots of running away …
How & when can I see it?
Free weekly episodes will be released online starting in July 2010.
Additionally, a bonus featurette entitled JOURNEYQUEST: UNDERQUEST, will be available exclusively on DVD and through several online digital download markets. (You’ll want to pick that up… that’s where my character lives.)
So, Emilie, how’d you get involved?
Also, I knew about the Seattle and L.A. auditions because I went to PLU with a lot of the forces behind this project. My husband has been in several of the shorts and a feature, but this is my first time working with most of them.
These forces–The Dead Gentlemen, themselves, happen to be the same guys (and gals!) behind the cult favorites, The Gamers: Dorkness Rising, The Gamers, the Demons Hunters series, and Dead Gentleman Improv.
I’ll be playing a bard, and no, you might not see me for most of the first season. But I’ll be there…watching, writing, recording history as it doubtfully happens.
What else can you tell me?
I’ll keep posting here about the JourneyQuest progression, after each bout of filming. In the meantime, you can go to the website or become a fan on facebook to learn lots more about the story, the writers and production team, and how this crazy fun got started.
Oh, and keep your eyes open for behind the scenes videos as they emerge! There’s already a few posted about making a plaster face-mold, starting a production company, and translating or pronouncing Orcish. Yes, as previously stated, there are Orcs. Lots of them.
