THE C&E INTERVIEW: JO BOZARTH

It seems kind of crazy that we haven't already done a C&E Interview with Eros herself, the lovely and talented Jo Bozarth. Jo is not only one of the stars of the show, but she was also one of the earliest people involved in its creation.  C&E simply wouldn't exist as we know it, if Jo hadn't been the inspiration behind making Eros female... and if Jo hadn't then made her such a fun, complex and interesting character.

So today, with our first story-arc coming to a close on it's new, ad-free, home of JTS.TV, it seemed like a good idea to finally rectify that situation.  After the jump, learn when she decided she would be an actress, how she thinks Eros changed over the course of Season 1, and how she would have accepted her Indie Intertube Award for best acress in a comedy if she'd been able to do so live.

THE C&E INTERVIEW: JOSH HEINE

When you make a show where the main character’s name is in its very title, it’s a pretty good bet that whoever you cast in that role is going to be a big part of your life.  That has certainly been the case with C&E, and Josh Heine.  Lucky for me, Josh is not only an amazingly talented actor, but he’s also been an extremely great collaborator.

I’ve actually known Josh since we were both at NYU, but unlike some of the other cast members, we’d lost touch for several years before reconnecting.  I guess the fates had a hand in putting us both in the right place at the right time to be able to team up on C&E.  In honor of Valentine’s Day, I thought it’d be cool to revive our semi regular C&E Interview feature so we could catch up with Josh.   After the jump, get his take on the show, learn why he wanted to become and actor, and find out how he would accepted an award or best actor.

Jo Bozarth WINS "Best Actress in a Comedy" at the 2nd Annual Indie Intertube Awards

IndieIntertube Winner Best Actress.jpg

We're thrilled to announce that Eros herself, Jo Bozarth, was honored this past Sunday, March 11th 2012 with the Indie Intertube Award for "Best Actress in a Comedy"

For those that don't know, Indie Intertube is a twice weekly (radio podcast on Wednesday and Video cast on Sunday) devoted to covering all that's hot and streaming in the world of independent online content.

C&E was nominated for 5 Indie Intertube Awards this year:

  • "Best Dramedy"
  • "Best Actor in a Comedy" - Josh Heine
  • "Best Actress in a Comedy" - Jo Bozarth
  • "Best Additional Content"
  • "Smexiest Actress" (smart+sexy = smexy) - Also, Jo Bozarth.

Jo's win, in addition to being well deserved (Sure we're biased, but we think it's true), is even more exciting since she beat out an amazingly talented field of nominees including Emma Caulfield (Bandwagon, Buffy), Kelsey Robinson (GirlParts),  Julie Ann Emery (Then We Got Help), Joanna Gaskell (Standard Action), Renee Olbert (Once You Leave) and last year's winner Stacy McQueen of Pretty.

You can see the full list of winners at IndieIntertube.tv as well as a full list of the nominees.

Thanks so much to everyone who watched along with us and sent us their support and congratulations.

And of course, thank you to April and Amanda of Indie Intertube--for honoring Jo's work, C&E, and for all they do for indie creators.

THE C&E INTERVIEW: BRADFORD ANDERSON

On december 19th the fine folks at We Love Soaps announced the nominees for their 3rd annual Indie Soap Awards.  We were thrilled to find out that our own Bradford Anderson was nominated in the "Best Guest Appearance (comedy)" category for his portrayal of Achilles in episodes 7-9. 

Most C&E fans know that Bradford and I have been friends since freshman year at NYU.  In fact, he's the only person, that's been attached to the project longer than our original core crew (Andy, Jo Bozarth, Erin Wilson, and Jefferson).  I first came up with the concept and wrote the initial treatment while living with Bradford in NYC!  So, as you can imagine, I was really happy that he's getting some much deserved recognition for his performance. And so in honor of his nomination, and hopefully win, at the Indie Soap Awards we thought it'd be a great oppurtunity to chat with Brad about C&E, his training as an actor, and all the other projects on his plate.

Check out our interview after the jump!

And if your curious about how other IAWTV celebrators answered this question, you can watch them here: "Why I do What I Do" by IAWTV.

2011, THE C&E YEAR IN REVIEW THANK YOU

It's hard to believe that New Year's Eve is already upon us.  Even harder to believe that it was a year ago, Jan 3rd to be exact, that we launched our 1st season of THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF CUPID & EROS in earnest.

It's been a wild ride and we wouldn't trade any of the the ups and downs for anything.  Today, we just wanted to use our blog to thank some of the people who've helped us along the way.  We were going to do it all via twitter, but then we realized we'd be flooding people's streams for at least an hour if we had to do things 140 characters at a time.

So a look back, and our thanks, after the jump.

IAWTV, THE PICKS: "Best Comedy" and Wrap Up

Well, the moment of truth is almost upon us. Tomorrow, Wednesday December 14th at 10 AM PST the nominees for the 1st annual IAWTV awards will be announced live. Regardless of whether or not we find ourselves fortunate enough to have scored a nomination (or two?), we've had a great time using this as an excuse to revisit our first season and share some of our thought process with you all. And of course it's been great to hear what YOU have to say, and which episodes you feel are our best. We have one last category left, “Best Comedy” but we thought we'd do something a bit different this week. Instead of focusing on the episode we picked for that category we thought we'd compile a list of some of the stuff we haven't been able to showcase yet.

So check out some of our favorite moments of Season 1 after the jump, and then make sure to watch along with us tomorrow as the nominations are announced live by Shira Lazar and Ethan Newberry at the What's Trending Studios. You can watch along with us here: http://bit.ly/wtchill

IAWTV, THE PICKS: "BEST MALE PERFORMANCE"

We're almost to the end here folks. Last friday the nomination process came to a close and now all we can do is wait for the folks at What's Trending to announce the nominees live on December 14th. But even though the voting has passed we still have a few picks to discuss and some praises to sing.

Last week we talked about the episode we thought highlighted the talent of Jo Bozarth and today it's time for her guy friday to get some much deserved kudos. Yep, it's time to talk about Cupid himself, Josh Heine.

Our pick, after the jump.

IAWTV, THE PICKS: "Best Cinematography"

We hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving! Andy and Avi certainly did. There was much food, family, friends, and yes the occasional tweet of gratitude to all of you who've been so much a part of the success of C&E. Despite being written post Thanksgiving, this week's blog on our IAWTV submissions is no less applicable to the holiday. This week we talk about cinematography and the contribution of one of the people who was there right at the beginning. Our DP extraordinaire Jefferson Loftfiled.

See which episode we felt highlighted Jefferson's work best after the jump.

IAWTV Awards, The Picks: "Best Editing"

This Thanksgiving week it's only fitting that we talk about a category that highlights allows us to give thanks to one of the best friends a director and producer can have when working on an indie production: the Editor.

 

In our case, that editor is Matthew Smith... the guy whose job over 9 episodes of C&E and multiple other projects has been to help us look good, while occasionally saving us from our worst impulses.

 

Our pick to submit for "Best Editing" and the reasons why after the jump.

Welcome to the new cupidaneros.com!

Hello there C&E fans,

 If you’ve been a frequent visitor to our little corner of the interweb you may have noticed that things look a bit different around here.  That’s because Andy and I have been hard at work trying to come up with ways to do a few different things:

 

  1. We want cupidanderos.com to be a great, easily navigable, home for all the episodes and ancillary content our extraordinary cast and crew have helped us create over the past year and change.
  2. We want to make it easy for you, the spectacular community who’ve embraced us, to see what we’re up to, revisit past content, share the show with people you think might like it, and help usher us towards a season 2.

 

We’ve made a number of changes to the structure and feel of the site to help us do both those things.  A run down of a few of them after the jump.
