Six Seconds of Damon Salvatore

By May 16, 2013 My Geek Adventures

The “green carpet” at the CW Upfronts was completely crazy, especially when all the stars began working their way down the line. However, by the time they got through the top-tier media the stars were less inclined to interview the lesser shows and internet or fringe media. So while we weren’t able to interview the networks main vampire, I was able to capture him on Vine as he briskly made his escape.

So no, I didn’t get a chance to talk about Lost theories and make everything all awkward during out Vampire Diaries interview – probably for the best.

Andrew Spear & theDBZ Mural

My boss really let me go all out when redesigning The Daily Buzz studio. We don’t have a huge budget, so it’s very DIY. I rolled the dice and hired my favorite Orlando artist (and now friend) Andrew Spear to ninja-punch our bare studio wall into something spectacular.

The Daily Buzz: Season 11 preview

By July 17, 2012 Orlando, Promos, The Daily Buzz

Work has been insane lately. We’ve been on the trajectory ever since the decision was made to re-brand the show, which means a new look, a strong brand position, and – as you’ll see from the video below – new anchors.

Here’s a featurette that I made last week (with the help of my marketing minions, Vinny and Morgahn), showcasing the new talent lineup – which officially became public today.

Not only are they a really hood looking bunch, they’re all really funny and incredibly smart. (This is in NO WAY an slam on the previous hosts, whom I wish nothing but the best of luck in their future endeavors.)

Unboxing the Dictator press kit

The Dictator - Press Kit

The Daily Buzz received an oddly labeled box today which had some (fictional) Republic of Wadiya currency taped to the top. Once ripped open, there was a wealth of “become your own Dictator” items, and what I presume are beer kegger cups. We’ve already started taking photos of staff members as ruthless Wadiya dictators, and will – no doubt – be featuring this stuff on the show.

Promo: Kia & Andy – “Wardrobe Malfunction”

By February 4, 2011 Promos, The Daily Buzz

I helped Producer Brad put together this piece of hilarity which he wrote/directed – which feeds out to stations on Tuesday. We have multiple versions of the same spot, with various explanations and tag lines, but I kinda like the understated (and weird) version best.

When I’m not locked away in my office writing code and participating in conference calls, I like to sneak out into the studio and see what the rest of the folks are doing. Here’s a few shots that I’ve taken at work lately.

Today I earned my “Explorer Stars!”

By August 4, 2010 Orlando, The Daily Buzz

This morning I took a break from my php coding and internet strategery to save the world (yet again). Diego was out sick, so instead I teamed-up with Kai Lan and Dora The Explorer to go on an adventure. We did some counting, organized shapes and colors, and then KILLED THE LAST UNICORN. All of this ended with a cheerful music number, followed by shots of Barenjager.

I'm helping stop Swiper

Ok, not really. Dora and Kai Lan actually came by the Daily Buzz studio this morning to promote their touring Nickelodeon show. We brought in Eliza, so that she could meet her idols. They were super-friendly (as expected) and were accompanied by a large bouncer/stylist. My daughter waved goodbye to them from inside our office as I snapped a final shot of them getting into a towncar – not onto a Pegasus, which is banned from the Full Sail parking lots. It sorta looks like TMZ was following Dora around town, right?

Tupperware Divas!

showcasing Tupperware with Dixie

Yesterday morning, the sensational off-Broadway starlett and Tupperware pitchlady, Dixie Longate stopped by the Daily Buzz studios to hawk her plastic wares and show off her kindly Southern charm. I pulled her aside for an impromptu video interview (which is crazy-hilarious; can’t wait to start posting it in a few weeks), but not before we posed as two sassy Tupperware divas. (Am I working that bowl or what?) In case you’re interested in getting something from her online store, just follow the link on her homepage titled, “buy stuff, hookers!”
