I found weird videos of me on the internet.

I’m updating this website. As part of that update I’m looking to add some additional videos, especially stuff from back in the Sabrina the Teenage Witch days. All my Sabrina stuff is on VHS tapes (remember those?) so I rely on YouTube for a lot of the older clips. As I was searching I came across the following videos:

I don’t know the user, but they seem to have some pretty solid ideas on who they’d like to ‘ship and Gordy and Libby were in that category (so was Gordy and Teenage Zelda). The videos feel like art installations and I’m impressed with how our heads were made to look like they were oversized and bobble-like. Rene and I thought they were worth sharing. If you’re interested in more like this go check out Bruno Mars Fan videos of couples.

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY!!!

I know many people aren’t into supporting Amazon this year. I totally get it. As someone who sells on Amazon, I’d like to reassure you that we at Panda Mony Toys have a really good deal with Amazon and it does not hurt us at all when you buy from them.

That said, I also like to see our fellow small business owners succeed! So below are some links to local shops and sellers that are not Amazon where you can get Alter Nation Toys.

I wrote comics, you can read them!

One of the earliest projects I worked on when I started working for Panda Mony Toys were the mini comics that will be packed in with the figures.

I proud of these. They aren’t breaking crazy new ground in the world of comics, but they do what we set out to do which is teach people about the characters and the world of Alter Nation.

We are releasing them as a special preview over the next couple months in the comics section of the Alter Nation website.

Go check them out and if you like what you see buy some toys! We still have some cool exclusives available until mid-August.

Squirrel – Coming Soon!

I did this movie last year. We shot at Aldworth Manor in late September and October. It was a gorgeous location and such a great time with a great team. I’m very grateful to have had this experience and I’m REALLY excited for you all to see it!

Day 51 Operation: Television’s Curtis Andersen 2.0 – This is tangentially related…

I have been very bad about videos lately as well as blogging. If I were to follow my own advice I would tell myself that I am not doing the work necessary to foster a growing organic audience, the kind of audience that I want to build to maintain a long term entertainment career. This is also where my other self, the one who has to time manage, would argue with excuses about jobs and exhaustion and all the other things that go into “resistance” as it is called in the War of Art.

However, while I do not like excuses, I will say that the things that I’ve chosen to spend my energy on are starting to bare fruit – at least the kind of fruit I can talk about.

For those of you who may not know, I am currently working for a new toy company start-up: Panda Mony Toy Brands. For the last eight months we have been preparing to debut our first toy line. It’s been work that has essentially been secret, and frankly I can’t even tell you that much about it right now, but we’re getting close to having everything birth-out like an alien out of John Hurt. Our first toy line will be debuted at the ASTRA show June 10th through 13th in New Orleans. I’ll be there along with the other partners as we dazzle the sales floor with our stuff.

I promise that I will post more when I can, but for now this is all I can show you:

You can follow everything HERE, but I’ll also be posting it on all of my social medias.

How is this tangentially related to the overall goal? Well since one of the best ways to promote a toy line is through an animated series and comic books that is something else that I have been actively working on as well! So I’ve been stretching my producer muscles looking for the perfect co-production. However, that doesn’t make for good videos so there’s that. In the end, because there is so much to do with the release I have had to modify my goal this month. I will not be rebuilding my class as I hoped (although I will probably do another one-day seminar in late June) but instead I’m working to make sure the launch goes as planned.

Speaking of which, I need to get back to it!

Here’s the playlist for May:

Day 29 Operation: Television’s Curtis Andersen 2.0 New Goal for May

This weekend’s acting intensive went very well! It was a really good group and the four hours flew by. It hasn’t even been a year since I taught my last session in California and I had forgotten how nice it is to be working with a class. Because of how well the intensive went I’ve decided to start up my ongoing acting class again. The first session will start in June, so I’m using May to get the word out. In fact, my goal for May is to get the ongoing class up and running. The nice thing is that results will be obvious: either I will have a class or I won’t.

One of the things that seemed to connect with people, and in turn got me excited about starting the class again, is that there does not seem to be a class like mine here in the area yet. I’m not doing and improv class, there are places like The Ape and Curious Comedy that are already doing those very well, and according to people I’ve spoken with the other acting classes up here work very differently. So I think I may be able to offer something to actors and non-actors alike who can use these techniques not just to work as an actor but to succeed in their other jobs as well.

There’s a lot of work to do, so I’m going to get started.

Here’s the playlist for April:
