COMIC-CON 2012: CLARE KRAMER AND MEGA SPIDER

I have a video interview with Clare Kramer on the way. Clare is the founder of GeekNation.com. You can also catch her in the new Mike Mendez action thriller, “Mega Spider,” coming out this fall.

Clare describes “Mega Spider” as a cross between “Ghostbusters” and “Cloverfield.” The interview with Clare, by the way, was in one of San Diego’s finest pedicabs. That’s not a taxi that provides pedicures. No, it’s like a rickshaw but with a bicycle instead. I guess we have some of those here in Seattle. I don’t usually ride in pedicabs but I would definitely ride with Clare. She assured me that it would be a safe and fun ride so I went along with it. You can’t make this stuff up. Only at Comic-Con. Come to think of it, I think we might have ridden past that giant spider, that giant mega spider!

COMIC-CON 2012: Clare Kramer, Buffy The Vampire Slayer Star and Founder of GeekNation.com

Clare Kramer has an impressive acting resume going back to her college days. She graduated from NYU’s prestigious Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in just three years. She appeared in numerous stage plays in New York. And, once in Hollywood, she got her big break in the role of Courtney, the cheerleader, alongside Kirsten Dunst and Eliza Dukshu in “Bring It On,” (2000). It was shortly after that movie that Clare gained herself a place in television legend as the arch-villain, Glory, in “Buffy The Vampire Slayer.”

Of course, excellent, creative actors are always looking for a new challenge and that’s what has brought Clare Kramer to host “Take Five,” a new show about the geek lifestyle at her new all-things-geek site, GeekNation.com, which makes its official debut at Comic-Con.

A lovely press release follows:

Known to Buffy fans the world over, Clare Kramer (‘Glory’ on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is now host of ‘Take 5,’ an entertainment show on GeekNation.com, officially launching this weekend at Comic-Con. This year, Comic-Con will be hosting a Buffy the Vampire Slayer 20th Anniversary panel. We would love to discuss featuring Clare on your show to celebrate Buffy, Comic-Con, superfans, and discuss her new hosting and founding venture on GeekNation.com

Clare is not only the host of the podcast ‘Take 5,’ she is also one of the genius brains (aka Founder) behind the newly launched GeekNation.com. GeekNation.com, an online destination for all things entertainment including talk shows, web series, shorts, videos, podcasts, and game shows, is where science fiction, pop-culture and pure geek-ish fun coexist happily all on one site. As a full service web production company, GeekNation recently relocated to a 5,000 sq. ft. sound stage, acquiring a complete-package of state of the art production equipment to serve multiple shows across various platforms Geeks unite!

“As much as I love working in television and film, as an artists there is always a desire to create and to work on your own projects, no matter how big or small.  It’s the same reason why actors turn to directing their own feature films or shooting their own videos for YouTube.  Whenever my friends and I are not working, we spend most of our free time discussing our own projects that we’d like to produce ourselves and GeekNation has allotted us that opportunity.  GeekNation has a crew, a full-time editor, full camera and lighting gear and a 5,000 square foot sound stage… I’m creating now more than ever before and loving every minute of it.”—Clare Kramer, Founder of GeekNation &  Actress

Clare first rose to Hollywood’s attention appearing alongside Kirsten Dunst and Eliza Dushku in the comedy Bring It On, playing the hard-nosed cheerleader ‘Courtney’, for which she was nominated for an MTV Award.  Clare is also beloved for her role as ‘Glory’ on the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, for which numerous action figures were modeled after!

Clare recently wrapped the Ghostbuster-like thriller Mega Spider, playing Greg Grunberg’s love interest, and her thriller Endure can currently be found On Demand.  Clare’s production company Defiance Entertainment co-produced the documentary Tyson, which screened at the Cannes and Sundance film festivals to critical acclaim.

Clare has been featured in Maxim, People, Entertainment Weekly, Stuff and Playboy magazines, to name a few.
