natvanlis: Throwback to the 2015 @streamys and a MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS to the entire @carmillaseries team for being nominated for a #StreamyAward for Best Drama again! I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that Carmilla’s success is largely due to the hard work of my very talented and deserving costar @baumanelise. And while I am honoured to be nominated at the #Streamys for my role this year, the BEST thing I have been awarded with since acting in the “little web series that could” is being able to work on projects that I care about, with people that I love. Working a great script beats “working a red carpet” any day, and I CAN’T WAIT for you to see how much Elise and the rest of the cast kicks ass in the #CarmillaMovie this fall!!! #ThrowbackThursday#Carmilla
You may have heard me screaming about this kickstarter for the last two weeks now but now I am REALLY screaming about it because The beautiful Carlos Valdes is confirmed to be in it.
Now Wayward Guide is an amazing kickstarter project for a web/podcast series. The plot is superb Artemis is a podcast host who has been sent into a small mining town with her twin brother but instead of finding a boring story they discover that’s right Werewolves and must discover the mysterys of the town and find out who and who not to trust.
Now it’s both a podcast series and a web series made up of ten episodes and has a stellar cast already such as actors from team starkid, Poe party, glee and Sean Astin from LoTR but now Carlos Valdes is in it and I will literally scream if this project doesn’t get funded because y'all know how much I love Carlos. It’s still got far to go and only 2 weeks to do it so please I beg you donate even just a little.
noun:1. Hakyeon loves Hongbin a lot, but Hongbin tends to tease him (says he doesn’t like N) 2. Both have known each other the longest since they were trainees 3. Hongbin thinks Hakyeons stage presence and affection towards members are one of his good points 4. N literally says the nicest things about Hongbin (He’s hardworking, skills are perfect like his apperance, etc.) 5. Did a dance cover of Britney Spears, “Toxic” at a concert once 6. Were in a web drama called, “얘네들 MONEY?!” (What’s up with these kids!?) 7. During trainee days, Hongbin felt he was “trapped” and quit. He managed to leave for about 2-3 months before N, personally, went and found him and convinced him to comeback. Hongbin, to this day, thanks N for making him who he is now
some downtime sketches of the old spectacular spiderman series which was probably my first full-on spiderman experience and therefore has my bias from the cute simple designs down to the voice actor (even though there’s so much shipping drama nonsense it makes your head spin)
I forgot how much I loved spidey until I started rewatching the episodes in the background while I work haha
do you know if there is a transcript anywhere of natasha's speech
“Oh wow, ok. Oh wow. Firstly, congratulations to the other nominees. I recently had the pleasure of working on Murdoch Mysteries and hey are both so lovely and it’s just an honour to be in their company. Secondly, most of you are wondering who the heck I am, I’m sure. Yeah. A few years ago, when I booked the role of a broody lesbian vampire on a little youtube series called “Carmilla,” I would’ve never imagined standing here. So thank you so much to all of our fans who voted for me.
It has been an honour and a privilege to provide more positive on-screen representation for the queer community, for my community. And I would not be here today without all of our fan’s support.
I’d also like to thank everyone at Smokebomb, Shaftsbury, and Shift2, and my mom who is my number one fan who made my dress last night.
And especially to my beautiful co-star who is the real backbone of the little web series that could. You inspire me to work harder everyday, Elise. So thank you so much for being my on-screen love interest. Thank you. And maybe my real life one sometimes, shhh.
But this isn’t for me. I think this is for all of my fans who feel like they don’t belong or who feel like an outsider. I am very much still the little girl who used to get shoved into lockers. So this one’s for all of you!”

My take on Matthew Mercer’s incredible character, Shaun Gilmore, from the web series Critical Role. I love him so very, very much, and was so very proud to represent Gilmore’s Glorious Goods at Katsucon!

So my lovely sister suggested that I make a masterpost of all my favourite web series, so I started off by listing all the web series I’ve ever watched………and there are a lot. So many that I think I might have an eensy bit of a problem. But moving swiftly along, here’s my own not so little list of all the webseries I’ve watched all-the-way-through and want to ramble about in alphabetical order. As always, these are my own thoughts and opinions, and you are perfectly entitled to have different ones. Because this list is so long, I’m putting it under a read-more (cause otherwise this would seriously fill your entire dash) but above the read-more I’m gonna put a list of the web series I talk about so you can see if there’s something you want to check out :)
i spent a lot of today binge watching this really excellent web series called ‘Middlemarch: The Series’ which is a modern re-telling of George Eliot’s Middlemarch with lots of lgbt+ characters and it deserves so many more views than it currently has, it’s SO good and the character tension is just amazing. if you like people drama or lgbt+ web series or classic literature or all of the above please go watch it:
Just want to do an Elise Bauman appreciation ask... because wow, I just attempted to watch /another/ web series and can't help but be reminded of how brilliant Elise is. What a difference it makes when the lead actress can hold the weight of the material... It makes a huge difference for a show like Carmilla, when Laura is so central to everything (and the camera)! And the ridiculous amount of lines she had to deliver! I can't wait to see Elise on screen again! Miss her acting so much!!!
I love how you said “attempted” LMAO
Elise carries the show for Carmilla that’s for sure. She really understands and connects to her character, how she’s feeling, and really got into Laura’s head space very seamlessly. Elise had the most lines and was obviously on camera most out of everyone and yet she was able to pull it off so well in just a couple of days EVERY season. I honestly believe no one else could’ve done Laura justice except Elise. Hell, if it wasn’t for Elise, I would’ve dropped season 2 solely because Laura was getting on my nerves (which isn’t a bad thing, it showed Laura had her flaws). Elise was able to portray Laura in a likeable way even though her character was very flawed and that in itself is such a difficult feat, because like I said, having an unlikeable main character would make people drop it quick. She made Laura so believably “pure” in that it was obvious Laura never had much experience with seeing the world as grey even though journalism was her major (her experiences would probably help her in that field in the long run). Her mannerism and her voice speech, making Laura talk fast and the exaggerated expressions adorably fits the character so well. She brought Laura to life in a way that I feel like she’s real, that she’s talking to us, that we relate to her, that she was a 19 y/o struggling, that she was growing and learning, and that she was in love.
So I’ve had a few people approach me about the future of ALBATROSS and if I intend to continue it. I have not had the time to in this year to work on it but I would very much like to continue the series.
I can’t express my thanks for the support I’ve gotten for it, without it this story wouldn’t have happened, and I would love to know if you all are interested in seeing it continue.
