The Movie Crypt

Aug 8, 2022

PUBLIC VERSION. Writer, Producer, Creator, Actress, and Geek Culture Icon Felicia Day (THE GUILD, MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000, DR. HORRIBLE’S SING-ALONG BLOG, SUPERNATURAL, EUREKA, THE FLOG, TABLE TOP) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss her incredible career journey. From her game changing decision to stop waiting for opportunities to come her way and create her own award winning and ground breaking web series THE GUILD (now featured in the Smithsonian)… to becoming an artistic hero and paving the way for so many others to stop waiting and start creating… to learning the harsh reality that the Hollywood system doesn’t know what to make of “outside of the box” talent and that being a self-made success doesn’t exactly translate to feature film and TV series deals with the major studios and networks…  to launching her own content platform GEEK & SUNDRY and the immense pressures that came with producing 40 hours of weekly content with extremely limited resources for the monumental task at hand… to coming to the realization that being a healthy human being would make her a much better artist than just being a work-a-holic and making the difficult decision to walk away from GEEK & SUNDRY… to how the exhausting experience disenchanted her desire to write for almost 5 years… to Felicia’s process for recording books on tape and why she felt the need to give trigger warnings to her fan base with her latest audio-book THE HONEY TRAP (now available on audible)… Felicia is one of the most inspirational examples of an artist who stopped waiting for permission and started doing her art, her way.

Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a filmmaker who managed to scare away their previous therapist and Felicia and the boys geek out over their shared love for THE WRAITH (1986) in this incredible conversation with a true creative titan.
