AVENGERS GRIMM

AVENGERSGRIMM_key_hr[1] If you follow me on social media, I’m sure you’ve seen me post pictures in a pretty serious   wig recently, for the part of Rapunzel in Asylum’s AVENGERS GRIMM.  Well today, I’m happy to say that it’s been released in select theaters and on VOD, yay!!  I had an absolute blast working on this film.  Everyone in the cast and the crew made this a exceptional experience and I’m ecstatic that I can finally share it with you.  As far as acting bucket list items are concerned, I’ve always wanted to play a fairytale princess and I have to say that getting to do it this way, as one who also kicks ass in the name of justice is the most I could have asked for.  I hope you guys enjoy it, and if you don’t have time to watch it right away, check out an exclusive clip below!

We also have a special Shinjuku giveaway for attendees.

Here is more info about our panelists and moderator:

Cassandra Peterson – twitter.com/TheRealElvira
Halloween icon Elvira, Mistress of the Dark was the first horror host ever to be syndicated throughout the US on national TV and has undoubtedly become the best-known Horror Host of all time.

In addition to her original TV show Movie Macabre, she produced, wrote and starred in the feature films Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and Elvira’s Haunted Hills, the TV reality series Search for the Next Elvira and, in 2011, 26 new episodes of Movie Macabre. She has made recent appearances on RuPauls Drag Race, Celebrity Ghost Stories, Oddities, Counting cars, Fangasm and Face Off.

Along with Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, she is now part owner of Comikaze, LA’s preeminent Pop-culture convention.

Elvira is played by actress-writer Cassandra Peterson who has spent over three decades solidifying the Elvira brand.

Danielle Vasinova – twitter.com/Vasinova
Known for her work in White Trash Noir, Danielle Vasinova is our very own Super heroine Belle, of Twistory Studios Belles War. She was born in New England and trying out for the New England Patriots Cheerleading squad when she decided to move to LA to pursue her dreams of acting. Since then, she has made appearances in shows including Dexter and Rules of Engagement. She is currently working with Twistory Studios on the short films for Belles war and learning all the tricks of the western era, including gun training and card playing.

Sho Murase – twitter.com/sho_moo
With a style that has Spanish and European accents, Sho Murase has the ability to touch many hearts when she puts a pencil to paper. She grew up in Barcelona and would visit her mother in Japan, but now resides in San Francisco where everything now makes sense for her. Her artwork focuses on a protagonist going through hardship and coming out on top. She has worked with Twistory Studios to develop her own series of photos.

Team Unicorn – twitter.com/teamunicornftw

Clare Grant – twitter.com/ClareGrant
Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Clare Grant is the nerdy version of the girl next door. Her first on screen role had her working alongside actor Joaquin Phoenix in Walk the Line. From there, she has made her career a fun and certainly creative profession to watch. More recently, she is taking over Youtube with her ‘Team Unicorn’ and has been green lit for a pilot on Adult Swim.

Rileah Vanderbilt – twitter.com/Rileah
As a key part of Team Unicorn, Rileah Vanderbilt works with Clare Grant on a daily basis. Born and raised in Colorado, she is a known geek who loves all things fantasy and comic related, including Stars Wars. Her big break was in 2005s Hatchet after starting young and being involved in community Theatre Groups. She is now working on a series for Team Unicorn for Adult Swim.

Bean – twitter.com/noellebean
Dallas-born, Nashville-raised, and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and performer Noelle Bean began going by the surname “Bean” after her high school music teacher chose to address the budding musician by the one word alone. She was handpicked as 1 of 25 artists in the Macy’s and iHeartRadio “Rising Star” campaign, while both Pandora and iTunes created a “Bean Radio” channel. Her music appeared everywhere from OK TV to spots for Mitsubishi and Coca Cola’s Fantasy Soccer Camp. Meanwhile, she became a live draw opening for the likes of Colbie Caillat, Megan & Liz, Hot Chelle Rae, and Austin Mahone as well as giving a show-stopping set at Bonnaroo 2013. Everything has merely led up to the impending release of her two 2014 digital mini-albums—one in the spring and one in the fall—culminating in a physical special edition with extra tracks for the holidays.

Production is underway on the Team Unicorn Saturday Action Fun Hour! pilot forAdult Swim. Penned by Dan Milano (Greg The Bunny) and inspired by the Team Unicorn cartoons, the pilot is described as a modern twist on Saturday morning-style cartoon/live-action hybrid shows, but for adults. It follows the adventures of the four mythical heroines who masquerade as human girls. Danger Maiden Prods’ Clare Grant and Rileah Vanderbilt executive produce and star alongside original Team Unicorn member Milynn Sarley (How I Met Your Mother) and Alison Haislip (Attack Of The Show) as both Team Unicorn and their cartoon counterparts. Jane Lynch (Glee, Hollywood Game Night) voices the villainous Dark Puba; Alan Tudyk (Suburgatory) voices her sidekick, Chummy Cherub; Tara Strong (The Fairly OddParents) voices Billy, the boy with the ability to summon Team Unicorn; and Kevin Shinick (Mad) is the show’s announcer. Robot Chicken creators Seth Greenand Matthew Senreich serve as executive producers for Stoopid Buddy Stoodios. Green is directing the pilot.

Danger Maiden Productions was formed in 2009 when Grant and Vanderbilt wrote/produced and starred in the viral video Saber, which won Best Action and the Audience Awards at the Lucasfilm Fan Awards. Recently they completed the trilogy, which has racked up more than 7 million views collectively. Team Unicorn first was introduced to geek and female empowerment fans in 2010 via G33K & G4M3R Girls, written and produced by its original members. The viral-video sensation captured a million views in its first week as a geek-centric parody of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” music video. Other Team Unicorn videos include Alien Beach Crashers, SuperHarmony, A Very Zombie Holiday and For The Win.
