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.

Avi, Josh & Jo Talk Love Stories on the Web on Web Series Watch

On February 27th, Web Series Watch hosts, Cindy Marie Jenkins and Patty Jean Robinson welcomed myself, Josh, Jo and fellow web creators Darren Chadwick (The Bloody Mary Show), Otessa Ghadar (Orange Juice in Bishop's Garden) and Caryn C. Hayes (Breaking Point) to talk about telling love stories on the web.

Livestreamed and recorded via Google Hangout, the conversation was part of the CREATORS WATCH spin off series of Web Series Watch, a review show dedicated to helping viewers navigate the wild west of teh web series world.  During the 46 minute show we talked about the freedom of the web, telling different kinds of love stories, bad 90's flannel, trained monkeys, and exploding queens.  It was awesome.  Check it out below.

IAWTV Awards, The Picks: "Best Supplemental Content"

The voting period for the 1st annual International Academy of Web Television awards is in full swing! Members of the IAWTV are currently combing through a ton of submissions in over 30 categories, all with an eye towards nominating the best of the best in original scripted and non-scripted web series. A while back we asked you guys, the C&E fans to help us decide what episodes best represented the categories we were planning on submitting to. Now, with the submissions in, we thought it might be a neat idea to share some thoughts on why we chose each the specific episodes we did and how they lined up with what you all thought.

Today we start with "Best Supplemental Content"  Find out what our pick was, why Andy and Avi each thought it was the right one, and how it lined up with yours, after the jump.

THE JOURNEY BEGINS FROM THE OTHER SIDE

In his blog “Of Short Films and Series,” Avi gave an excellent picture of how an idea that came to light in 2001 eventually grew into the Cupid and Eros web series. This is what excites me so much about the creative process and how one should never give up on an idea that has been in the back of their minds. It also highlights that you need to surround yourself with people that also have a passion for creating and that share in your vision. Of course the picture may change slightly, as Avi noted that Eros was originally a guy and through our discussions (I don’t recall if I was the one to recommend this change but thanks Avi for the shout out), making Eros female took the idea to the next level and allowed the characters to expand in scope, emotions and conflicts.

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.
